looking into a cam and nitrous, but not sure how big of a shot it can handle without a build.

Full exhaust as in Long Tubes included? If it's a 99, get an LS6 intake, good for about 15whp.

I just looked at your other thread, so you have long tubes, but either get rid of that Flowmaster catback, or get a cutout. Flowmaster sounds good, but flow worse than the stock catback, lol.

Gears is a good upgrade, but it's a crap shoot whether the stock rear will survive with 4.10's or higher.

Nitrous, cam, heads, etc. Just depends on what you're willing to spend.

I started with a lid... and well that's as far as I've gotten so far lol. Saturday comes a catback. If it's an auto stall that bitch now. Nevermind its a 6-speed just read that. in that case, the first 2 I would do If I were you is a 9 inch rear, and get the hell rid of that flowmaster. I like the way they sound, but I've heard they don't flow well.

1. Lid if not already there
2. Rearend
3. New Catback or a cutout
4. A real clutch
5. A new intake manifold to support what you're going to do later. Since its a 99 its not an LS6 manifold, so I'd look in that direction.

Edit: I didn't read all of the posts, sorry for the repeats of what Muerte_X said, but hey it's reinforcement lol

The FTRA is cool, but check out the Super sucker. It's got a pretty badass scoop on it lol. But the FTRA has a scoop adapter you can buy I think.

They're pretty easy to install, just gotta watch out for the oil pressure sensor when you're taking the old one off. I could probably do it in about 30mins, after doing mine.

I would do it before the tune. You won't hurt anything doing it after, but it'll throw off the AFR a bit.

Oh, do all the free mods too if they're not already done. Ported throttle body, free ram air, etc. They do help quite a bit.

Lid, P&P Throttle body, Ls6 intake, Cutout(to save money), Then your ready for a cam and some heads and/or nitrous. Don't forget the drag radials, a clutch and eventually(sooner then you think) a 9" rear end. :driving:


And last but not least a tune from Solid Technology.

The stock fuel system and internals will hold 150. The FTRA is good for .2 and 2 mph but you have to seal the ram air to the underside of teh airbox, very easy just use some weather striping form home depot.
