if you go with high flow cats, do the diablo predator, you can have the rear 02's switched off, OR, you can do the plug foulers to trick the rear sensors. Don't do the tb spacer unless you plan on tapping it for a nitrous nozzle. Since you planning on true duals on a qc, do an H pipe for the tq. I know they make ported tb's for your year OR you can send yours in to get ported.

you have the right ideas and JS1977 has complimented it with more detailed items. I have used the vararam (now bfi) and it is one of the best performing intakes out there. The only reason I don't run it is not because of performance, but because I like to work on my motor without the cai bein in the way. To add to your list would be the minor stuff like a 180 tstat and an efan. Other things to consider is a 2600 tq vertor, ud pulley, gears...
