Hey a local welcome man.
It all comes down to how much money you have and where you want the car to shine. headers are a nice start, if you can throw in a cam then you will should be happy for a while. Some will say ls-6 manifold, but the gains will only be noticeable if you get the cam, and if you could only get one over the other then a cam and headers would be great. There is someone locally selling a 224r 112 lsa cam for 200 which is a bloody steal. A 224 w/ headers, and ls-6 gets most anywhere from 390-400whp, or a mid-high 12 sec ride depending on driving familiarity with the car.
oh and pics or ban.

Really? a mid 12's with just cams and headers? can you send me the link to the guy who is selling the cams? have you had any issues with the rear ends? my pops was saying that they are pretty shitty if they are stock? moneys not an issue.. this is my first camaro and i love everything about it so far and i just want to do all the custumizing myself.. so i just wanted to know where to start?

Here's the link
Introduce yourself while your at it since it's the local forum. A good driver w/ a stock m6 is capable of bottom 13's, these cars stock w/ slicks do 12.6-12.8 all day until the rear end shits. Yes rear ends are the weak link you being an m6 just puts one more nail in the coffin. If money is not a problem then you should spend some extra on a bigger cam again it comes down to goals good luck.
