    What other mods would help?

    My mods are below and I was wondering what else would be a good idea to do. Looking mainly for power mods. Looking to maybe bump over the 400rwhp mark. I am looking at things outside of a supercharger, turbo, and nitrous. What else would be a good bargain and be pretty effective? Thanks for any input!

    Heads and then take off the crappy Ls6 intake and get a real man's intake: a FAST 90/90 and you will be close to my current setup and power. only thing is, my 224 cam has a .581 lift...

    Yeah, what he said. It's not that big of a cam, though.

    im running Patriot Performance Ls6 "style" stage II heads (old 6.0L castings): 2.02" int/1.57" ext, 59cc, and a ported FAST 90/90...

    trick flows have had some issues for some users with their coolant holes in the heads not lining up with the holes in the block. do some research and find out which heads (Dart, Trick-Flow, PRC, AFR, Patriot, etc) fit the goal you have set for your car. dont just slap heads and an intake on your car and call her done. for the money spent for heads and an intake, make sure you get your money's worth...

    Mods are:

    SLP Lid
    SLP Bellow
    FAST 90/90
    Patriot Heads
    Comp Cam 224
    Ls2 Timing chain
    Ls6 Oil Pump
    LT's
    **just installed TD's this past weekend (not retuned yet), the 444rwhp was through ORY/SLP LM catback
    HP Tune

    basically he has everything I do minus heads/intake...

    i swapped my Ls1 intake for an Ls6 intake when the heads were installed in Jan. those numbers were 409/386. then in August I swapped out the Ls6 for a FAST 90/90 and w/retune, i went to 444rwhp, my current numbers. soon i will get the car retuned for the TD's and see what if anything i might have gained...
