Well all of the mods that you are looking at will help your HP up on top 
but not really low-end torque.  Chips don't really work on the Atmo cars. 
 The K&N is good for maybe 5 HP's on top.  The TB Mod sure sounds neat 
but even the guy who does the mod at Schamberg is'nt really sure that it 
makes a big difference.  Dual exhaust will kill any bottom-end torque 
that you have.   More Torque requires more displacement.
