If your looking just for simple boltons, Headers, Fans, Pulleys maybe a larger throttle body. Ignition upgrades seem to yield some decent results for the cost and some high flow cats.

Nitrous works great if you don't mind kickin your warranty to curb which I'm sure it will do.

What gears do you have? If there around 3.23 or 3.42, Your best bang for the buck would be some 3.73's or 4.10's. That will get you off the line much quicker and you can find a set online for about 200 bucks with install kit and install usually runs 200-400 bucks.

Well hope this helps and if you have any more questions just let me know.:great:

A little off topic, but a quick question...are you going to the Birmingham World of Wheels this upcoming weekend?

As far as igntion upgrades They sell full kits for around 250-350 including New Plugs, Caps and Wires. Or you can buy them seperate. I like MSD, Accel and such. With the spark plugs I'd say go iridium.
