    I would go with exhaust, intake and get a tune. thats about the quickest way to get more power with out spending a fortune.
    1999 Camaro SS/ Pewter/ #1775 - LS1 6-speed - Predator 3 Custom Tune - Pro 5.0 - LS7 Clutch - 3.90's - Koni's - Strano Springs and Sway Bars - SFC's - Full UMI Chassis and Suspension - LS6 Intake PnP TB - ARH LT's and Kitty Ran Away - Magnaflow.

    Without knowing anything other than its a chevy truck....(but I didn't see you say for certain, truck)

    Generally good guidance from Tyler_LS1. However, forget the intake if your only upgrading to LS6 or such....better to go with the truck 6.0liter intake due to how much torque it makes down low. Even the FAST intake is only gonna give you a little more with the powerband of your truck.

    The tune...do it!!! Nelson Performance....they really know how to tune trucks.

    Get a good set of longtube headers and a highflow cat-back.

    Still want more - I think your pushing it though?
    A decent cam in the 219/228 (maybe like the LS1 hotcam) would be okay. Past that, its all about how much you want to spend.

    Get rid of your clutch fan and install a electric fan its an easy install also if you do the free mods like on a ls1 DONT descreen your MAF youll have hard starting issues but the free mods, fan and CAI will give you a nice edge over your stock friends
