    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!

    Normal "Bolt On" list! Check any off that you have:

    Headers
    Lid
    Throttle Body
    Pulleys
    EWP
    CAI (Cold Air Intake)
    Cat Back
    Y-Pipe
    Injectors
    Intake (Fast)
    SFC
    LCA
    Tires (DR's)
    Tune

    Thats the main shit without getting into all the whoop la crap. Everyone has different opinions but thats what I go with. What ever you don't have on that list.......get. Then get a mail order tune (Mail order is not good for H/C cars) You should notice a nice little increase in power/mpg


    EDIT: Run a good quality oil like (Amsoil/PP/Mobil EP) and filter with some 93 octane gas. Get a good air filter like the Amsoil Nano fiber and forget about K&N since it can gunk up your MAF. Leave your MAF alone also, waste of money unless your built for it/tuned for it.

    Open a free account at Photobucket.com and upload the pics from your computer to that site. After uploading, return to your album page and run your mouse over the pic you want to post on here. You'll see some codes appear beneath the pic. Simply click on the [IMG] code and it should say "Copied". In the message reply box here simply right click and select "Paste".

    So it looks like you have:

    Lid
    Headers
    Y-Pipe
    LCA
    SFC
    Oil leak of some sort
    Smooth Bellows
    Strut Tower Brace
    Drive Shaft Loop


    I can tell you right off the bat that a LS6 intake will net good gains and isn't the hardest thing to put on, along with Porting and polishing your TB. Free mods would also help

    I would, in this order:

    Engine degrease in/out
    Check and see if you have a oil leak and fix it
    LS6 intake
    Ported and Polish TB (You may have one, tough to tell)
    UD Pulley
    Frost Tune
    SFC
    Oil Catch can


    I would then see how the car runs and if your happy with it. You may or may not want more power. That at least will set you up for the future.

    The bold must be fixed first. Hate to see you put all your money in parts and have your engine go boom because your losing oil. Could also be the R&P but it defiantly needs addressing first.

    Then SFCs, LS6 Valley Cover Tray Mod with the Catch Can and the other above items mention. After that your talking Cam, Heads, Stall (you might already have one with all the mods I see so far) New Rear End 9" or 12 bolt, Midwest Chassis has some really good products.

    It looks like there is oil on the bottom of your oil pan...dripping down from somewhere.

    You also have a leak on your pumpkin (rear end). Probably a main gasket seal leak.

    Its one of those mods that you do to squeeze every little bit out. It is suppose to help with power loss to spin the pulley by changing the ratio/weight. I have one and didn't notice any difference but at the same time, it won't add the power of what headers will
