Already have aluminum ic pipes...going to get 3" o2 housing and catless downpipe....and go 2.5" exaust all the way back to an areo turbine muffler. I also plan on a diablo sports tuner trinity...new plugs and wires..want to hit between 15-18lbs of boost. Anything else i should do? And suggestions?. Thank you. Chris

This statement is untrue...You do NOT need expensive head work, cams, and manifold to see 300...Are we talking 300 WHP or 300 HP SAE? Big difference...Look at my signature below...I have none of these parts on my car and am making 300 WHP @ 16 PSI...Now running 19 PSI to redline probably closer to 320~330WHP now...With an automatic transmission no less.

There is more than one way to skin a cat for sure. If you head over to the SRT4 forums, you will find lots of guys there, like viper, that have done just that.
