If I had it to do over, I'd do the computer first. I got very litle gain from a FIPK and had to mod it to make it work decent. Perhaps others have had better luck.

a ram air? probably not gonna net you much over a run of the mill cold air intake. definetly not enough to be worth the money or time to make or buy it. I got a K&N knock off (Spectre) and have been moderately pleased with it. a little bit more low end oomph when i want it and better efficiency when i have a light foot (but with pipes that is rare). I paid $150 for it. A ram air kit (I'm assuming you wanna go like a firebird ram air through the hood) you're lookin at about 500 just for the hood and a few hundred more to get a pre made kit or a long pain in the ass to make one yourself. unless you do forced induction (turbo/supercharger) i'd say just buy a quality pre made intake. but a programmer does more...and exhaust sounds better...

He specified not through a hood scoop. I'm assume he's planning on going with a cone behind the grill (outside the edges of the radiator I hope) or something through the bumper (fog lamp opening, etc). I've seen some do it yourselfs that were pretty bad. All dryer hose and plywood mask and whatnot. If you do it, do it right.

Talking air intake

well i found one made by spectre(the 728) that will bolt up and wont look like crap after it is installed. i all ready have headers and custom pipes(sounds VERY good) but am trying to get the little things out of the way before the rebuild and cam. i just wanted to make sure it would be ok till then with the ram air kit.
