Junk, you don't want to disrupt the smooth flow of air threw the throttle body.

You could port and polish your lower intake manifold. That would free up a couple ponies. Go the extra mile and do your heads too.

I think someone has a ported LIM for sale on here. If you haven't replaced any intake gaskets yet, this would be a good time to do it while everything is off.
