smaller wheels/tires are not only lighter, but they are lighter rotating mass, and they will give you a better gear ratio. It'll be fairly significant depending what combo you go with.
I'd also ditch the power wire. It screws up A/F ratios, not good. I don't know if they make tuners for the 2002's, but if they do that'd be a good mod. What CAI and exhaust work do you have done?
With your mods and the smaller tires you might stand a fighting chance, but not with the 35's.
Breathing in and out is good enough for me.
