+1 for gears even though they don't have much hp gains they will dramatically increase your acceleration. it will be a whole new beast.

Id say tq converter and drag radials! Far more gain than gears. Let me know if you have any converter and/or gear questions, I have both in my car.

I'd say ditch the K&N get you a vararam, haltech or rotofab.

Then TQ converter, DR's and a tune from Rhino79, if you wanna take advantage of all of those mods. Just my .2

What they said...Also, just an idea since you're getting tuned anyway I assume that you have $2000 plus tune money set aside...Maybe get a cam kit upgrade for $2500 if you can find that deal?

Unless you want a vvt cam i'd say stall, tune ,TRANNY TUNE , bushings, trailing arms, rear sway, and bolt on some 18" vette wheel DR's.

You will feel like your in a whole new animal.

You would be amazed at what just a tune and tranny tune will do for you.

A torque converter has always been the best single mod for an automatic car. When paired up with a set of headers and some sticky tires the gains are simply amazing! You'll be able to slash your 60 foot times which is everything in the game of racing!

A good torque converter, tune and some drag radials would be my recommendation as well.
