    In my opinion, start with a cold air intake and a cat back exhaust. Then start saving for the cam, larger intake manifold, headers and whatever you want. Start off slow, then go for the bigger mods.

    Keep in mind weather you want all that for street- m6 good idea, but if your going to go to the track alot I would stick with auto. I have all that but had I known how far I was planning to go I would have gone auto. Can't beat the m6 for driving experiance and excitement though on the street.

    I agree also start small and work your way up. You start for the heads/cam and it doesn't stop. You start tearing up trans and rearends. Shit adds up and before you know it, your 20 g's down not including what you paid for the car.

    well if you dont care..buy a long block stroker from www.texas-speed.com...my dream build is a ls3 427 or a ls2 414 ..they will run you 7,300-8k for a long block..that is not including some options you would need...after that ..you will need suspension so look at 2-3k then transmission so 2-4k then rear end 2k-4k so you will be 15-20k deep to get everything ..oh and exhaust so about another 1k ..it costs to play ..but yes a nice stroker will get you 500+ ...or just go heavy into the 346 N/a and get 420-480hp ...or F/I and watch those numbers sky rocket

    ok the 2k stands for 2000 US dollars

    2,000-3,000 US dollars = between 577.720 Kuwaiti Dinar and 866.580 Kuwaiti Dinar

    7,300-8k = between 2,108.68 Kuwaiti Dinar and 2,310.88 Kuwaiti Dinar

    then our ls1 engines are 364 cubic inches(5.7 liter) ..and N/A stands for naturally Aspired or as you referred to it natural breath ..and F/I stands for Forced Induction ..so superchargers , turbo chargers and Nitrous Oxide

    well which one is the best is really dependent on who you talk to..but i will let you know who I think is the best

    for the intake manifold = Fast 92
    for the TB = a nick Williams 92 mm ....
    for the intake manifold and throttle body combo
    click here

    for heads i like personally like the Trick flow 215s
    click here

    Camshaft = a custom grind cam ...you should call Comp Cams and have them spec one out to custom fit your application ..then order it from
    here

    for headers = i have QTPs..and they are nice but i would go Kooks or ARH

    ARH

    for the catback exhaust = Magnaflow ..i have them on my car with long tube headers..and it sounds AMAZING so here is the link to the catback i have installed
    here

    there is the jist of it...however there are many many more little things you need to buy..so take a look around the websites i gave you and look for packages!!! that way you will get everything you need.....also you will need a new rear end also..look into a 9 inch rear end for our f-bodies

    no call comp cams and tell them your car..what mods you have/will use , the weight of the vehicle and what your plans/goals for the vehicle are (dont tell them street racing tho) just say heavy street use..and they will then give you the lobes, LSAs and so on that you should use..then go to texas-speed and put those in.

    also..with your car being a 99..you will need to coolant pipes and plugs for the intake manifold.

    i would think between 410-450rwhp maybe more ..with 410 being on the very conservative side

    ..also remember ..hp numbers are just that..numbers ..a car with a proper set up (suspension,tune and proper cam for application) can/will beat a poor set up that is only focused on peak numbers

    yes you can install any gen III+ engine in a f-body since dimensions are the same..there will be some fitment issues with some longblocks ..but the ls2 and the lq9/lq4 will fit no problem
