    well as far as cheap and or free mods here ya go....

    coolant bypass... helps cool the throttle body temp, keeping incomming air cooler IE more dense

    Cheap CAI { cold air intake}
    the ebay ones are just as good as the $300 ones, if you dont wanto go that route get a drop in k&n or something like that and cut a hole in the bottom of your stock air box... 30-60 bucks. it wont be a full CAI but will flow better and cooler than stock.

    Ported TB { throttle body} a ported throttle body will help with throttle response, and yes HP it wont be a huge gain but everything adds up

    Elc fans, now as most of you know a good set will run u $400-$550 but you can do the same thing if you go to your junk yard and get a ls1 or ford windstar fans then go to autozone and get a harness, its around $100 depending on your junk yard and harness..

    Vette servos.... there like $30 bucks easy to install help the tranny shift firmer and are saposto help with the longevity of the transmission

    Id say with all that maybe $200 tops in parts you'd see a noticable difference in your tuck....
