    An aftermarket lid is your quickest and cheapest "bolt on". After that, long tube headers, Y-pipes and catbacks are your most common additions.

    What do you have and how much you got, also what your plans are in the long run?

    Track only, Street, DD, Show, combo of the four?


    Also list what you have any mods? M6 or A4?

    List that and you should start getting some good suggestions.

    For now I'd recommend SFCs, 3 point are best.

    The biggest bang for you buck is going to be a tune. Not only for raw torque/HP but for getting it to the ground. The tuner will adjust line pressure and shift points. No bolt on will equal the gains from a qualified tune.

    Won't give you a kick in the pants, but subframe connectors are a great addition to any F-body.

    A 3500-3600 stall converter, then a tune.

    Must have been on a Mustang Dyno. If not you may have some hidden issues, Stock with mild bolt ons should put you put you a bit higher.

    Well do you know how to post pics? If so post some of the headers and engine bay. Sarge is correct on a tune for best bang for the buck. Talk with Frost or Tampa Tuning. They are both sponsors on here.

    Of course a stall guys......I don't really consider a stall a "bolt on" like a lid.
    Hell....I'll go with you guys....A Stall/TransGo Shift Kit/Vette Servo/Trannie Cooler/Heads/Cam/Intake/Larger Injectors/High Performance Fuel Pump.....and a tune.

    And nitrous. Blow that pig and give her a shot of giggle juice.

    Watch out kid....we'll spend your money no problem.

    Get it tuned. Frost, Nelson or Tampa all can do you a fine tune via the mail if you do not have a ls1 specific expert in your area.

    If memory serves me correctly (And it does in this case) A guy posted up in the AAG about all of his bolt ons with dyno runs after each bolt on (Buddy owned a dyno and let him use it for free) Biggest bang for his buck was a EWP = Electric Water Pump. Gained him 14 rwhp and 11 lbs of torque at the wheels. All these gains were before the tune Posted about 2 years ago.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!
