Im wondering what I should exspect out of an N/A with aftermarket headers, exhaust, intake, all the stuff to let the car breath easyer. Obvously, im not exspecting huge gains, but im just wondering what to exspect. :)

well, with just the K&N intake, i pulled a high 14, and that was with a pretty crap 60' time. I figure i would have hit mid 14's with a decent launch. If you have everything on and tuned w/SAFC or EMUltimate, i would say low 14's are achieveable..

And if you have an auto, a torque converter, valvebody upgrade/ and or ESK would be a very good decision.

Auto.

I have desided to go N/A for now, I will eventually go turbo, but in like 5years or so when I will be out of school and will have a second car. (im going to turn the IS into a scca race car)

So im thinking:
Cam Gears, SRT intake, HKS exhaust, headers, torque converter and upgraded clutch. Sound good? Maby high 13's with a good 60ft?

The IS stands for Is Slow when you are N.A......boost that 2J or youd be throwing your money away...If your gonna make your car SCCA first thing is to get a decent suspension on there and work on your driving skills because no matter your car in AutoX its all in the driver....

you won't get much use out of a clutch w/ an auto! ;) at least not in the traditional sense of the word
