Yes, a better throttle-body, R/T heads, and a fully programmable EFI will help the 408 even more, but the 408 alone will give instant results in your search for horsepower. If you really want to see results from those modifications, start with the 408, add the bolt-ons, then watch your e.t.'s plummet!
