    Welcome to the site! Two easy upgrades are subframe connectors and a lid for your air box. The SFC's tighten up your car considerably and the lid is good for an 8-10 hp boost by most accounts.

    SLP lid, Long tubes and off road y pipe, replace the muffler, and get a tune form frost!!! Long tubes and y pipe will be the biggest cost but the most benifit with the frost tune.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Welcome to the site. Some things that need to be known prior to suggestions:

    Tranny type? Any current modifications to car? What type of smog inspection do you need to pass and whether you are looking for handling or acceleration mods or both...
    67 Camaro: K-K + 797-z (look it up), 454/Th400/4.10 12-bolt = 6mpg, PS/PDB/PW tilt, tach, gauges...

    2005 Corvette LS2/M6 Magnetic Red Metallic (What else would it be?) w/ Cashmere interior

    2002 Z28: NBM/Tan, MTI smooth lid, smooth bellows, !AIR, !cats, 1-3/4" QTP SS LT's, 2-1/2" TD's with X-pipe, MagnaFlows dumped at axle, custom welded SFC's, MidWest Chassis body mount adjustable T/A, 3400 stall, 3.23 gears (was 2.73). Tuned: 343rwhp/357rwt (before TD's). Best: 12.559 @ 108+, 1.73 60' @ 3500' DA w/MT ET Street DR's.

    Carbon footprint? CLOWN SHOE!

    If M6 or A4, first mods are usually sub-frame connectors, lid, long-tube headers (LT's) and exhaust. If on a budget, Pacesetter makes decent LT's at a good price. Magnaflow is an affordable nice sounding exhaust that many on here prefer. The lid is a lid and can be of any type, they all net the same performance gain. Most people like the SLP lid. Lastly, a mail order tune to liven the car up a bit once said mods are installed.
