Well.... The biggest gains for the buck will be Long tube headers, cold air, tune, and X pipe. Those are easiest to pick up good HP. You can go with ported throttle body, ported intake, cam... which is little more involved with L99, ported heads and all this with what i mentioned first will pretty much max you out without doin a supercharger or NOS.

Not sure how far you want to go, and I already talked a little bit about this in another thread, but I will do it again. My L99 Camaro ran 11.5's @ 118-119mph last season (snowing now) and would have gone a little faster if I had time to take it back to the track in October but too busy in the shop so couldn't make it. My car dynoed in at 458 rwhp on my dyno @ New Era Performance. Here is a list of the performance upgrades done to my car:

New Era OTR Intake
American Racing Headers 1 7/8 primaries with cats
New Era Custom axle back exhaust (about 40 lb weight reduction)
Light weight battery with New Era custom mount (about 35 lb weight reduction)
New Era custom cam package
Darin Morgan ported stock casting heads
New Era ported intake and throttle body
160 degree thermostat
Powerbond underdrive crank pulley
New Era billet tensioner
Precision 3600 rpm torque converter
Nitto drag radials on the stock heavy @$$ rims
Stock brakes
Stock short block
Stock gears
Stock suspension other than Pfadt lowering springs
Race weight 3965 lbs.

The goal for next year is to be in the 10's naturally aspirated with the stock short block, I intend on doing 4.10 gears, ported FAST 102mm intake, and hopefully some lightweight rims and different tires, and maybe a 6 point roll bar so I don't get kicked out of the track. This car is my daily driver for spring/summer/fall, rides and drives perfect, and I intend on keeping it that way. If you are interested in a package deal to be in the same range, let me know. Also, any questions, just post em or feel free to contact me directly.

it depends on your budget and what you want to spend you can to Lt's as mentioned and a tune with basic bolt on's and get some decent power or you can go a little further and do a cam. or if you really want to go nuts stroke your motor.

Would you see more gains from the FAST intake or a ported OE intake?

I will let you know in about a month, my intake manifold is ported, I am going to test it to see the gains.

I am still looking for my Camaro to purchase.

I will share my research from my 07 Nissan Titan I currently drive. To add roughly 100-125hp (base 317hp) the following needs added:

- LT headers (approx $700)
- CAI (approx $400)
- JW Technology cams (approx $1200)
- Install cams (approx $1000, unless you can self perform)
- Free flowing exhaust including high performance cats & b-pipes (approx $1,000)
- Uprev handheld tuner + data collector (approx $500)
- Dyno time & custom Uprev etunes (approx $500)

So roughly $5,300+ total. In the case of the Titan, there are a few SC/Turbo kits available but low success rates of making them work on daily drivers so NA is the preferred choice of owners.

With the Camaro you have a few more options as well. One of the biggest is the ability to stroke the motor.

It is interesting to note that all of the base model Corvette LSX engines have shared the same crankshaft stroke of 3.62 inches, and this remains with the LS3. By using some simple hot-rodder math, readers have probably figured out that these 4.06-inch cylinder bores can be used to build some relatively inexpensive 414ci stroker engines by just swapping in a 4.00-inch rotating assembly.
Of course all these mods are dependent on your tolerance of modifying a perfect stock motor and sacrificing your 5yr/100k warranty. Not saying it's a bad thing, but many consider that a value of a new car.
