NA I-5 performance suggestions

Okay gang, time to put your collective brains together.

I'm much closer to actually beginning work on my NG engine upgrade (NA
2.3). I have a Schrick cam of some sort (any way to ID them?), a
Canadien exhaust manifold (5-2-1) and am designing my own exhaust system
beyond the cat. I'm guessing the exhaust will net about 10hp, no idea on
the cam, and the stock NG engine is 130hp. I'd like to see about 165hp. 

Is there any advantage besides the knock sensor to the CIS-III system
from the NG car? I'd rather not go through the headache of changing to
it to be honest.

Will larger injectors, say from a 5KT benefit me? Fuel distributor? I
imagine it's all kind of resticted by the throttle plate housing size.

Anyone have any first hand knowledge on improving the 10v cylinder head?

Yeah, I could just stuff a turbo motor in there, I know that. I could
also just buy a Ur-Q. Just accept my own bizarre challenge please.
