    Virgin LS1

    Hey you guys I'm new to this site. And it seems pretty cool. But anyways, i wanted some advice on cheap modifications. I dont have a high budge. I just want to make my z28 look and run a bit faster. Other than a K&N air intake, my Ls1 is still a virgin. Thank you guys!

    Welcome! An easy first mod is replacing the air lid with an aftermarket unit and ditching the helmholtz resonator that sits behind it. Generally costs < $100 and is a proven 8-10 h.p. bump. (I am assuming you have a K&N filter and the stock lid by your post)

    +1. Slp makes a smooth bellow that's only $60.

    You can also do the free mods, great instructions for them at installuniversity
