tune and full exhaust

how much do you think a full slp exhaust system [headers high flo cats x pipe etc. and a tune would gain you? you think it would help to get a k&n air filter? would it make the car any faster?

Full exhaust (Long tube headers, high flow cats) and a tune is good for
40 rwhp. Throw in a good intake (not just a K&N filter) and you can add another 10 rwhp or so.
So you could be looking at 50rwhp with a good tune. At the very least, you should make 40 rwhp.

you think it would improve 0-60 time. or if you were racing a vette to 60 and you got the jump would you still win or come close?

It all depends on what year and model Vette. But it will definately make your car significantly faster.
Just getting a tune makes a big difference (especially the L99 A6) because of all the torque managment.

But with long tube headers, high flow cats, intake, and a tune you should be running at least .5+ sec faster in a 1/4 mile.
0-60mph times will also improve significantly.

Check out this video of a stock L99 A6 racing a tuned L99 A6 with a few basic exhaust mods (no headers).
