Default Upgrade question?

Hii this is my first post i have a 03 pt gt autpstick im getting ready to do the stage one pcm upgrade with the 04 srt4 injectors mod. Im going to take off the mbc i have on now because it ua useless and makes it run worse. Im going to get a wideband afr too im not sire if i need it but what the heck right. I guess my question what else can i do to get a littl more power. I have a few ideas i would like to do a bigger cam and rollers amd rockers i dont know ive just always wanted to do it to one of my cars maybe a waste of time any thoughts? And also a 3 inch downpipe cat delete with a muffler delete straight pipe. Do any of you have any good idea by the way its my daily driver but i like to have fun to and love to mess with my vehicles just always looking for new ideas

Go ask NitroPT. His is a performance professional. He has also designed camshafts. He is also into a performance build of his own. He can steer you to what will actually make HP. As the wrong combo of things can actually hurt performance.

Get a DSP and a wideband. Either tune it yourself or pay someone else to tune it (on a dyno, via email, whatever) and call it a day. If you run out of fuel for your needs, source larger injectors and rescale and retune.

best bang for the buck is a DSP and tune. YES, get a wideband.
