    looking for advice

    I just got a 2001 Z28 all stock and I'm looking to start toying around with new upgrades. Any advice on where to start, money isn't really an issue right now, but let's not go crazy. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

    If you got the money, a Procharger.
    Drives like stock and power when you need it.

    or you could go mild heads cam route. something like a tsp 224 on a 114 lsa with a set of budget heads will put you just over 400 to the wheels with all supporting boltons. (headers, etc)

    SLP Flowpac

    My car is bone stock. Yesterday I installed the SLP flowpac $300 ( Cold/Ram Air, BlackWing Filter, SLP Lid and smooth bellows).

    Holy SHIT what a difference!

    Worth the money

    while this is not the cheapest route, i agree with ED.
    the car will drive stock till you get on it.
    it also has the least amount of wear on an engine.
