I'd say something simple like rockers. If you want to dig in, do a cam. I believe cam'* run around $300 from Intense-Racing or ZZP. Ported exhaust manifolds, High flow/compression heads, if you want to go that route. A high velocity intake insert. Just a few options.

Did you do both a high flow cat and muffler? Might want to get a 180* thermostat.

Oops. Forgot, you could also get a custom PCM tune from Intense. Also, don't rod the cat out, that'* illegal. A high flow cat from magnaflow will help though. The part number can probably be found if you search for it. Also, you could put on an underdrive water pump pulley.

WOULD NOT suggest that unless you don't have to run through emmisions. Even so, it can be a HUGE fine. Get a high flow magnaflow cat.
