    List your bolt-on priorities here:

    I'm about to start upgrading my virgin WS6 and will probably spend $1k before having to explain myself in depth to my wife. I was thinking the SLP coldpac which comes with lid, K&N, smooth bellows also the SLP MAF, SLP subframes, battery relocation bracket, BMR STB...

    I did the SLP Lid ($90), Smooth Bellows ($55) took about two (2) hours. I purchased the Hooker CB for around $380 and had it installed for $125. I just completed the Throttle Body polishing and MAF mods myself this weekend. Seems to run real strong and sounds great. I will probably do the underdrive pully (SLP $218) next and stop there. 300+ RWHP is plently for this 60+ year old kid. Good luck

    is a stall converter a bolt on? if so, then that should be the first mod for every auto. If a manual, then do a lid, cheap and easy. Then Long tubes, nice power increase. Then a cutout or exhaust.

    Just as a note bene, your car already has the LS6 intake, all 01 & 02s got them from the factory. Do the LTs and Cam at the same time; you'll get a bit of a break on labor costs, and the additive difference is about the biggest jump in performance you'll find!

    I wish my car is 01 or 02 so I don't have to mess with the intake but unfortunately I got millenium model. It is the logical way to do the cam/LTs together but Uncle Sam doesn't support my money pit for now, so I have to do the "one at a time" mod.

    very correct!

    a stall will give you a better performance gain than any other bolt on.
    with whats considered a small stall nowadays (3000 rpm) i knocked off .6 tenths at the track and the car still drives 95 percent like stock.
