Well it'* all about how fast you want to go and what your willing to spend.
A basic tune up is a good place to start then..
If you just want to wake your car up then try:
A CAI or FWI (search)
A high flow cat
Rockers
Try the 1.84 ratio from zzp:

You don't need to replace the valve springs and a similar raio has been proven to be the best for the L36. 1.9'* are too high. (www.easyperformance.com look at ER rockers)
PEMs
http://www.gtpowderworks.com/
Just make sure you specify your a 95 L36 H-body car. the rear manifold differs in other years/bodystyles
And a chip can be done by gmtuners.com but I would highly suggest this for last. And you will also need a scantool and familiarality using it.
All that will really wake your car up but if you want to go farther then a cam and header install is in order.

Willren hates me for saying this, but you can do the F14 L67 conversion

F14, he has an L36, not an LN3 or L27. It'* not even a close comparison. The list of parts to make a hybrid out of an L36 is far more extensive and includes heads among other things.

Ooooooh, sincere apologies. I forgot about the '95 being the Series II
