    A search would work better, but-
    lid, throttle body, manifold, headers, water pump, oil pump, under drive pulley, ftra or ssra.
    I think that's about it.

    i think thats an answer that can be different for everyone... some people even consider changing the rocker arms to be a bolt-on modification... (the "bolt on" record lt1 did it.) so i guess anything that has nothing to do with the internal parts of your motor.

    get a cam and mill the decks of those ls1 heads .030 and you will be astonished at how fast your car is in stock trim. cars make 400 wheel with this setup.

    If you have a m6 go ahead and get a 224 that should put you in the 380's-390's. Don't waste money on stock heads if your going to blow money might as well do it right. A cam kit is going to run you about 500-700 bucks. If you can't install it on your own look at a price tag that might put you over a grand-Shit aint cheap.

    wait a sec stock heads are NOT a waste of time. ls1 heads flow very well even in stock trim, with minimal work it really wakes up a cam for dirt cheap: i.e. the milling, valves, and clean up work. if you HAVE stock heads no matter who ya are it's a might as well to spend the three hundo to do all this work. only thing you cant do yourself is mill the decks and my shop charges 60 bucks a head consistently. 300 bucks is nothin compared to the 2 grand youll be spendin on some aftermarket ones. a cam alone is 300-500 dependin on hwat ya get and springs/ppushrods are another 3. i have this setup and have done countless others w/ all different variations of stock/aftermarket heads/manifolds. wastin money would be buyin any other casting than your ls1 heads, unless you had the money for some name-brand mills. im givin the best-bang-for the buck/easiest way to make over 400 wheel -as not everyone can afford 3000+ dollars for an aftermarket top end setup.

    So you're sayin i can port my heads myself, i mean it seems pretty difficult to do it right, porting each chamber the same amount and what not?

    if by chambers you mean combustion chambers dont touch those by all means. they are excellently shaped from fact and doing anything but maybe removin some casting flash would lower your comp ratio and alter shape. yes you can port them yourself. all you need to with stock cubes is clean up intake/exh ports and polish them up while removing as little material as possible (since this will be your first port job). you can't mill the decks yourself but it shouldnt be more than 150 bucks at a local shop. milling the decks .030 will raise the compression ratio from 10.1:1 to 10.9:1. now-get a set of 2.02/1.6 intake/exhaust valves which drop right into a stock ls1 head with no valve bowl modification. so:you can do everything yourself except milling with the purchase/rental of only a spring compressor/removal tool.
    lemme know if i can help more-i dont wanna write ya a book if ya just need a front cover. this setup with a mid 220's duration cam will convert your car into a ravenous street machine.
