How does this sound for a build?

Ok guys....After a LOT of careful thought, an research...Here is what I want to do to my truck...

Body-
-Repaint using the same color-Or a few shades darker.
-Fix the rusty holes with METAL replacement panels.
-Roll pan
-1Pc Headlights-Smoked
-LED Brake Light bar under the tailgate
-Red Polyurethane Body Mount Bushings

Engine-
-Camshaft/ Lifters setup for Idle-4,500 RPM's
-Possible Aluminum pulleys-Probably have to get some for a 5.0, and re-do the bolt holes.
-Paint the block, head, valve cover and intake manifold.
-Sidegap the plugs
-Port the Intake/Exhaust ports.
-Possibly shave the head/re-bore block to true specs.
-Remove SMOG equipment; It's already half gone, an no CEL.
-CAI routed from behind the front valance to the intake; Using a 302 MAF Intake Y-Hose....Already have it BTW.
-Remove the exhaust from the manifold flanges, and redo with 2" pipe down to a Y, and then up to 2-1/2" from the Y to behind the rear wheel.


Suspension-
-2" Lowering Coils in the front
-3" Drop Beams in the Front
-5" Axle Flip Kit in the rear/ I already have 2" Lowering Shackles in the rear
-Front and Rear Sway Bars


Drive Train-
-Hurst Shifter for shorter throws
-Centerforce Clutch for stronger pulling
-Possibly a Hydro-Clutch booster
-3.55 rear gears, it has the stock 3.08's right now
-Either a Limited Slip or Spool for the rear end


Now, is that too much? Just want to beef up the rear a bit, and put the power where the engine can do work, and not be stroking out......

I have contemplated a 302 swap, and still on the fence about it...

Thanks for looking guys, and if you see something I have missed, or could make use of, let me know...

-Wes
