if by air induction kit you mean a cold air intake or short ram intake system, I thought it was very worth it when I installed one and it was childs play to put it on, i say go for it.

Get one off of ebay. Don't spend $200+ on an AEM or other name brand intake. The ebay knockoffs are usually exact or near exact replicas of the expensive models and will give you the same gains (even though gains from intakes are relatively minimal.) Very easy to install. Probably the best first mod for you to try to install yourself.

Monroe - Not without a LOT of time and money. It's going to be very difficult to get those numbers out of your engine without boost.

Good look at my build thread. I'm building n/a with Honda oen gx pistons and some other stuff. The pistons are 12.5:1 compression. How's that for HFP

These little D17s respond really well to boost and a cam, that would be my recommendation. K-swaps are reliable as soon as you drop them in, boosted D17s require near constant f***ing with to keep running cleanly.

Hey guys, sorry for posting. About the resonator. Do I need to do anything once removed? Or is that it?
