Here's a few ideas in that price range in no particular order:
1) CAI - up to 15 hp
2) Dyno Tune - 10+ HP throughout the band
3) short throw shifter
4) Lowering springs
5) sway bars
6) Metra or Scosche dash kit with Pioneer Appradio 2 (ebay)
7) ******** Stealth amp/12" sub/enclosure kit

If you want to keep the warranty you could get our CAI with a scoop and washer bottle relocation kit. This will give you about 18 rwhp according to the Jannetty testing done, as well as greatly improve your throttle response, deepen the exhaust tone at WOT, and give you something pretty to look at under the hood. So lots of bang for your buck! No tuning required, no warranties voided. This is why it is such a popular mod, especially to start with. Let me know if you have any questions, I would be happy to help.

My vote goes to an intake system and a throttle body. Best bang for the buck!

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Cold air intake, and dyno tune to whip that 6L80e into shape.

They are both right!! Just make sure the intake is a Cold Air Inductions Inc. system and you can't go wrong either way
