Default Mods vs. HP?

Here'* your chance to weigh in. No way of telling who'* right, just share your thoughts.

For the following mods, how many hp do you think it would gain?
My thoughts are (X?):

K&N only. (5?)
K&N+modified intake (holes/cai/etc) (7-10?)
Catalytic Converter (hi flow) only (5-10?)
Muffler only (hi flow) (5-10?)
Cat/Muffler (hi flow) (10-15?)
Full exhaust (hi flow) (15-20?)
Stage 1 chip (10-15?)
Stage 2 chip (15-25?)
180 stat + tranny cooler (5?)
Smaller SC pulley (25?)
Perf plugs/wires (5-10?)
NOS (that'* for Drifter) (???)
Stickers (large) (15?)
Stickers (small) (7-10?)

Pillar pods with gauges increase your HP by 10000000000000hp really believe me I know exactly what I am talking about.

Don't forget about the huge bolt on wings that make you fly. At least 200 hp from those. Right?
