    But seriously, i think that should be enough for some head work, or maybe a bitching cam and some other goodies, Koni suspension

    If you have a auto go with a stall and a good cooler. If m6 headers, cam and springs.

    This isn't your first thread on this.
    If you get used you can get more and if you do it on your own that much more still.
    You could get a set of headers and a cam with a tune possibly even nitrous if your thrifty. With just headers your looking at 330ish rwhp, depending on cam a 220 will put you at 360ish-370's 224 380's-390's add nitrous on top of it pushing 450 rwhp or more. I doubt you will be able to afford the nitrous on $1300

    you can do it yourself it would be alot cheaper, otherwise look at spending about $80 an hour for a mechanic to do it and anywhere from 3-4 hours of labor.

    My cam installed with new springs and pushrods, parts and labor $1900. So probably somewhere around that ballpark.

    yea i'd definately get an aggressive stick n some LTS for it. seriously doin a cam swap in an ls1 is 'bout dick simple. it is not even necessary to take anything up top off ('cept valve covers) in order to do the swap. get yerself some nice pushrods...some pace setters are cheap way to get LTS on there too, both of these are in the 1000 range and without head work and the right cam you can get well above 350 wheel out of it with a good tune. and for a few hundo more you can do some head work to those ls1 heads to complement cam.
    2000 red ss: >2" drop, koni adjustables 'n 275 s-compounds all way around, giant brakes, dynatech LT's, borla catback (no plate), t56, tubular everything, HARD TOP, caged, "stock" heads 'n a mean cam. -2* front camber.

    see if you can get a mod day with some of your local members, if you can they'll help you out with installation-lots cheaper.
