    I would wait and do the underdrive pulley when you do a cam, otherwise you are removing the pulley twice. You have pretty much knocked out all the basic LS1 fbody mods. One thing I do see missing from your list is lower control arms. You could add some more suspension mods or just save for a real rearend or heads/cam etc.

    With my current set up I gained 7rwhp from a UD pulley. Like Y2k said, don't touch the same part twice. Wait for cam.

    me and Y2K often think alike on these threads. The first thing I noticed was no LCA's and I would also add relocation brackets. Might as well throw an adjustable torque arm at it also. No sense in making the power if you can't put it to the ground. You don't list drag radials either. I'd also consider those. Huge traction improvement on the street.

    My next thought was a mild cam... Hoping to get away with not doing any supporting mods, or as little as possible for now... any suggestions?

    224 or 228 duration with a 580s lift and 112 lsa. Swap springs and pushrods and you are good to go with a tune.

    Get an electric water pump when you do the cam and the underpulley.

    sorry, but I never understand this way of thinking. Throw a cam at it, and you'll have the best tire smoker on your block unless your rear breaks then you'll have the fastest car on jackstands on the block. Get the car to hook first then worry about power.
