Based on results I would go another route or start with higher HP/TQ base of a V8 or just trade for a stock V8 and don't mod it.

Better manifold and headers would help a little but wouldn't be a value either when based on HP/TQ gain per dollar spent. And, to get much out of the manifold and headers would need airbox and some cylinder head work. However, it would attract attention at a Cars and Coffee and be a good sleeper.
