If it's a TB spacer don't bother unless you intend to drill it for nitrous. As for the headers I don't know, hopefully someone on here will chime in. Who makes them?

Definitely a cold air intake, and exhaust. The stock intake and exhaust are both hugely restrictive, I did just the cold air intake and a muffler and I got some pretty good gains, really worth it for $375. Oh and a little better mileage too.
