Source a roller cam from a Ranger. Should be able to swap just the cam and roller followers. Read up on it a little.

Do you guys recommend the 120 or 130 degree intake manifold? I'm thinking of buying one if not modding mine to it. I Seen em on ebay for $250 ported to the max and whatever angle you want

Are you running a front mount intercooler? Only reason to rotate the intake is for routing of IC. I wouldn't bother porting unless you get head work done as well.

Just depends on how you want that FMIC piped. If you don't mind the long pipe across your engine bay you don't need to rotate. If you want both pipes facing directly forward and it's worth the money then get a ported and rotated piece.
