    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 will add more then 5 with a full exhaust and a tune. Visit www.tunedbyfrost.com.

    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.

    Search used. No reason to buy new.

    Go to the website above for Frost's tuning. It will describe the process in detail for the mail order tuning.

    He said 1000 dollars. Gonna be very tough to get a Cam/supporting mods/ tune for 1000 dollars. That's why I didn't recommend that.

    My cam + dyno tune cost me around $950 (thats just cam/springs/pushrods/tune, no oil pump or timing chain like I should have done)

    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.
