Upgraded Intake track

Ok I have done some searching and have read from time to time about different products everybody has tried. I want to upgrade my whole intake track at one time and want to make sure that the system will work well with each other and with my future mods. I'm starting from the filter to the upper plenum. The car is N/A with a P.I. intake now but maybe in a year or two I will be adding a roots type blower. I'm guessing that the car will never see more then 400hp at the crank. That being said what is the best set up at this time for the items listed below?

1. Filter (2002 Mustang?)
2. MAF (LMAF?)
3. Intake tube
4. Throttle body (75mm Accufab or BBK?)
5. Plenum (matching Accufab?)

J-Mod, MMC D/S, 24k gvw Tranny Cooler, Mark VIII TC,13” KVR Frt brakes, FRPP 3.73 rear, PI cams & Intake plus P&P NPI heads with the cooling mod, 1 3/8" Rr swaybar.

For NA
1 GT
2 GT
3 GT

Since you want to go blown in a year or two if you don't want to buy a new MAF you can use the LMAF, 4&5 won't be reusable so I don't really see the point spending so much money for so little gain if it's just going to go away.

2002+ Gt that is.... and the TB/plenum would still be there if he went with a centrifugal blower.

But he's not, which is why I didn't talk about centrifugal blowers.

Even with the roots type blower I will need a Throttle body if I make sure that it will still bolt up. I understand the Plenum will be useless at the blower but I don't want to upgrade the whole system if I'm just going to use the stock one.

Well stock 02 GT for the rest, that makes things a little easier.
