    Out of what you listed, LS6 intake.

    Injectors will do nothing for you and in fact, buying larger ones might hurt you.

    Like Jeff mentioned, list your mods and we'll go from there We have no problems spending your money for ya

    Sub frame connectors if you don't have them. I would not worry about injectors at this point, unless you have one/some that are bad.

    Ok heres the list
    SLP Lid
    Pacesetter Headers and ORYP
    Hooker Catback
    MSD Plug wires
    233/239 cam
    175 zex dry shot
    SFCs
    Adj torque arm
    Rear lower control arms
    Rear QA1 adj shocks
    Sportline Springs
    level 4 monster clutch
    Thats pretty much all i can think of. Reason i listed injectors is before right now my stock was are all maxed out and if i sprayed it would be very lean and blow my motor. My tuner said i need to get bigger injectors to push more fuel in so it wont lean out.
    Also maybe a new catback!?

    Now that we got the mods just how much you willing to spend?

    Under 2k I'd get new heads, push rods and an intake. You're already got a cam and have made good gains in the suspension areas.

    If not that I'd go for a Tick performance T56 Stage II build with a Viper gear for $1800.


    Just notice you have a 99' , Yeah I'd recommend getting better fuel injectors, #26lbs are weak.

    OP said he had around $400 to spend.

    Your injectors should never go beyond 80% duty cycle. If yours are at 100%....

    It is not recommended to exceed 80% duty cycle with injectors because you will run the risk of the injector not being able to open and close quickly enough, which causes the injector to float half open. This will lean the mixture out, which is not going to be healthy for an engine at high revs and under full load.

    New injectors will exhaust that $400 quick

    I thought a used LS6 intake was right around $300.

    i bought a brand new LS6 intake with fuel rails and injectors for 450....if you do go that route, and just want the intake, i have an extra fuel rail that matches if you want.

    I didn't see the 400 the first time

    I still think he should get new injectors because of his listed mods and possible future plans. Those 26 lb stock injectors won't last much longer.
