LS6 Intake and a tune.
Are you an automatic? If so, A stall and tune. If you can swing the LS6 intake as well, Do the three. Stall, LS6 intake, Tune.

no it's a m6. and what'll that intake do? i heard it's just a little lighter and adds like 5 hp at the most

Member name here is Frost. He can set you up with a simple mail order tune. The mail order tune is 125 bucks. The intake is anywhere from 250-350.
What suspension do you have done? The remaining 500 (or all for that matter) could go towards sub frame connectors, LCA's, Sway bars etc.

it's stock suspension. and the mail order tune will just plug in and go? or will i have to do something?

you could always get a cam, but being your daily driver idk if you would want that sound all the time.

Maybe think about going with a 4.11 rearend...??? It was less than a $700 mod for me ($260 gear, $160 rear end girdle, $20 lube, and the remainder in install labor and taxes by a reputable shop in my area and no problems in 12k miles). It was a mod that put a hugh smile on my face the moment I picked it up. I have a 2000 SS 6sp as well and was definiitely my best bang for the buck. I used mine as a daily driver and with the 6sp you can just bump it up a gear so fuel mileage really doesnt suffer much if at all. Do it!! Do it!! Do it!!!

If you do not already have one you should get a lid for it so it can breathe in better to match the breathing out better.
You can always get a stall and a pulley set to free up some HP.
