    With a $1000 you got a lot of options, depending on the brands you buy you can get:

    TS&P
    Pacesetter LT Headers & Pacesetter ORY for about $489

    All from UMI site
    SFC's - 2 pt UMI bolt in - $185/weld in $169, 3 pt bolt in $339/weld in $319
    LCA's - UMI between $109-$249 depending on what you pick (fixed, adjustable, poly, single roto, double roto)

    KYSpeed
    LS7 Clutch Kit $500

    My second favorite mod on my M6 was headers. Added HP while making the car sound aggressive.

    Other modifications that I noticed a significant difference with after installation were: sub-frame connectors and lower control arm. Made the car feel much more solid and when shifting, kept the ass end square. Also increased traction by quite a bit.
    It's on jackstands.

    You guys are making this very difficult to pick lol.

    Think I'm going hood first. $450 plus paint

    Then SFC and if I have money left Panhard or LCA's.

    Got to think it over some, might still change my mind.

    I never said you could. He asked what my #1 mod was since I listed LT's as my #2 (with that being in his budget).

    I built the entire car from the ground up before I added the Procharger set-up, so it took me a little longer than most. Honestly, I didn't touch the car from stock form until 2009 and I bought it new in 2002. I was reluctant to stray from stock with it being a LE car, but after joining here, I got the mod bite...hard.
