    1- lid, exhaust, headers
    2- nitrous
    3- save your $ towards a V8 (what i would do) you can get them cheaper than you think. And you won't sacrifice much mileage over your V6.

    With a 2002, you should have tubular manifolds. You don't really need headers, and probably won't notice the gains between a catback and headers-back exhaust. If you want to go with forced induction in the future though, headers will be useful. If I had $1000 to spend, I would buy a high flow cat (~$60), a quality catback, which I would get in a 3" (ranges from 250-800), lid, then possibly gears/posi. I'm not sure if you have 3.23's or higher, but unless you have a Y87 package, you don't have posi. All that installed will take you to $1000. If you install it yourself, then you'll have a little more to spend.

    EDIT: Sorry, missed the gas mileage part. Gears will hurt your mpg, so if you want power as quick as possible, then look into nitrous.

    Headers, full exhaust (or just buy cutouts), and nitrous!

    Actually, as mentioned in another thread many birds have posi without the Y87 including my own

    Oh wow, you're right. My comprehension in this thread is not very spectacular.
