JB4 plus what equals good combo?

I've searched the forum and I can't seem to find the answer to my question. I have the JB4 and I'm trying to find out what other parts compliment it the most I assume down pipes, charge pipe and spark plugs?

I'm primarily building it as a track car that I do drive on the street if that makes any difference.

Thanks!

VRSF down pipes
VRSF charge pipes
NGK 2-step colder plugs (optional; replace only when needed or after 10-15k miles)
18" forged wheels (less rotational mass)
Sticky tires (power means nothing without traction)

Both stock intake and TMIC have been proven to stay efficient even with 100whp power increase.

If you can look past the front ride height, the stock ZCP springs offer stiffer spring rates than certain aftermarket springs like Eibach.

Normally after JB4 you want to consider intake and downpipes, then charge pipes then the stealth WMI kit.

Thanks for the suggestion and I already have a set of 18" Apex and Nitto NT01, TC Kline suspension and long list of other parts but not much with the engine...yet.

Every 10-15k miles, fresh plugs is a must to keep her performing at tip top..

Downpipes with a flex section is important for me personally, i would look for one that mimics the oem dp that has a flex section..

I would stick with the stock airboxes to keep iat's as low as possible in low speed situations..

so in short, Good quality DP's, and keep those plugs fresh..
