You may also consider installing ERG and TGV deletes while you have the intake off. I didn't see those listed, unless I glossed over that bit. Having everything apart will make these easier to install.
So as long as the heads are straight, they dont need to be sent off for any work?

I'd like to come away with at least 450hp/tq once tuned again. That's why I'm wondering if I may need some performance head work while they're off.
If the stock turbo can give me 450+ and the stock heads can handle it, that's the best case scenario for me.

*side note,
I also heard about two options for hpfp, one being tested now and one due this month from IBR. This could open the door for full e85 for the FA's.
