Tune for a 2001 v6?

I was wondering if there is a tune for a 2001 v6 or any other way to add some cheap hp, maybe like some sort or performance chip or something. I'm kinmd or new on this subject so take it easy on me lol.
Thanks

there are tunes out there for it. easiest way to add/free up some power is to seafoam your engine, synthetic oil and a good filter, good air filter, exhaust, CAI, etc. a tune is more for after you've got the supporting mods for it.

Oh i see, What does that seafoam do?
I was think about putting a CAI or just a K&N air filter. It has flowmaster muffler exhaust on it.

Seafoam is a petroleum based cleaning agent that will help clean out your engine
it doesnt "make" power, it frees up power that is lost due to gunk and carbon build-up inside the engine.

here's a link on how to seafoam your car.

I know for the v8s long tubes will add up to 20hp and if your lucky a few more then 20. maybe less with the v6. If you get a tune after the headers you should see another 15. I would expect .4 off your 1/4 with that. But you should start with exhaust and a intake first and do the tune last.

Anything else that could add some hp?
I know these are not hp mods but i want to add the ss manta hood, and the 10 spoke ss wheels, 10in sub in the lil compartment by the ttops, and then maybe an aftermarket k&n air filter set up.
I just dont want to get to crazy with the hp mods bc if i wanted to get crazy with it i would of bought an LS1 lol
