exhaust/intake

hey,
i have an 01 ranger. i have a drop in k&n, bosch platinum 4's and i did the airbox plastic tube removal. im buying a gibson side swept cat back from someone on here, and i was looking at getting the roush cai. would i notice any difference? i was also looking at getting the sreaming demon coil pack, and plugs and wires. i was wondering if i did that, what would be my best bet for the plugs/wires, and would that give me any difference. and lastly i was thinking of buying the pulleys for my truck. i was just wondering what all that would do for me. im not doing it all at once.
thanks for the help.

I put a k&n intake system on my truck with the cat back gibson and could tell more power and a little better mph right away :) I really like the way the gibson sounds, not too loud sounds good in side and out. As for the the pulleys its going to free up more power which is always nice. Its going to make your rpms raise and lower quicker too. Oviously the more pulleys you lighten the more you will feel this afect. Oh yea and dont buy anything cheap off ebay or they tend to not be built to specs and they vibrate resulting in premature wear.

im picking the exhaust up tonight. I am probably ordering the intake within the next couple of days. after that, i was going to that underdog site and buying the whole pulley package with a belt. i still dont know if i want to get a new coil pack, plugs and wires.

Crank pulley should be first. That one is noticeable and your MPG will go up a little.
