Best mod you can do is take those heavy Ls rims and tires off and the stock exhaust is pretty heavy also

Tune, custom from HP Tuners, IPF or trifecta. I prefer that order. the speed limiter can be removed too. I think you may be close to IPF.

Full exhaust with High Flow cats- SOLO for this, and a CAI intake if not going forced induction. Lighter wheels combo as well.

Ah, right. I skimmed over the part where he mentioned he has a 2013, otherwise I wouldnt have brought up the headers. Didn't realize you cant put a vararam on an lfx though.

Yes, ditch those heavy steel wheels if you haven't already. Get some lighter wheels on there (perhaps some shorter tires), and it will make a world of difference.

I also ended up with a 2013 2LS, unfortunately they are the factory economizer and you are already at a disadvantage compared to the 1LS, 1/2LT cars because the 2LS has a 2.92 diff ratio to achieve that EPA rated 30 mpg hwy, while all of the other cars auto's got the 3.27 gears, and manuals got the 3.45, which is why I mention shorter tires because it will act like a lower (numerically higher) gear ratio without switching any expensive parts, it will however make your speedometer read slightly off depending on how short you go.

A good cold air intake, and some high flow cats will be worth the $$, but IMO lighter wheels, and shorter tires will be the best bang for your buck. After those, a ported throttle body is also worth while. After that if you still want to go faster, it's all in how much money you want to throw at it. Weight reduction is the best friend of a 2LS car. Shed as much weight as possible.
