Just put the 1lE suspension package (available from GM) on a automatic SS. The dual exhaust as you call it (NPP) is only worth about 6 hp. (Using Corvette as an example).
Sounds like an SS with 1lE dealer installed and a tune wold work great for you.

How about the 1LE wheels and tires or something similar with the same sizes?

here's some links incase you don't get the 1LE. I think there are knock-off ZL1/1LE wheels available aswell but here's OEMs. Show her these prices and maybe the $3500 will look like a great deal to her

You can get the 1LE "track pack" parts from dealer has everything but wheels and transmission i think. There is also aftermarket available like pedders that are much better. 3.91 gears are available for autos. Recaros are available as a dealer option or aftermarket. Heck you can even get the 1le/zl1 wheels from dealer but for the price go aftermarket for better looks, performance and cheaper. Lastly NPP can be ordered and cost as much as any top of the line aftermarket catback...

Happy wife happy life

Also to point out your assumption that the lambo and Ferrari are auto thats false they are dual clutch...atleast have been for a while...like gtr. A tune crisps the auto trans up quite nicely.

you know the saying... "gotta pay to play". the $3500 package is a real seal after seeing the price of everything individually but I could see a want/need for a 1LE with an Auto I suppose.

just curious, do you not like your track pack stang?

Yes I like it, but the handling performance of the 1LE is addictive

HA I feel ya, that's the only reason I came to a Camaro is because of the handling. I had a couple Evo 8s previous to my 1LE
