180 Thermostat, intake, exhaust, 2.5" SC pulley, and a larger Trans cooler. Also take some time to look around in Techinfo.

Make sure your ride is running at its peak, then start adding to it. Save the chip last until your done modding it for performance

Good advice. Plugs, wires, pcv, coolant flush, and most other mundane tune-up items can make your car feel new again and recover whatever lost HP you have. Once the car is verified healthy and in good shape look at t-stat, intake, exhaust, pulley, 1 step cooler plugs. From there you can decide on how deep you want to go.

I suggest replacing the T-stat with the coolant flush as being reg. maint. That is if you have Dex Cool... just cheap insurance from being stranded on the highway with an overheating car, due to you not replacing a $5 part.
