nitrous is the cheapest way to horsepower, not necessarily the best way though.

Muffler delete = $80-$120
Axle back or cat back exhaust $400-$2k..ish
tune = $350- $700 then there are custom tunes ?$ kinda open there
CAI = $300-$500ish
Level 2 suspention, sway bars and springs = $600-1500

Those I think are about the best for the $, from there just figure on your budget and what you want. SCs are great just at least $6k and up from there. Then of course you have your cosmetics, and thats from under $5 to what ever you want to spend.

For me it was the lowering spring and sways from Pfadt, then the MGW Shifter, then the cam swap headers and exhaust then the wheels and painted on stripes.

Solo high flow cats! By far this was the best bang for my buck. Instant loud and fast! This is the biggest restriction area in the exhaust. Second would be to replace the factory intake with a good cold air intake!
