V6 Camaro Performance Upgrades

So I just purchased my 3rd Camaro. I previously owned a 97 and a 2000 both V6. I recently purchased a Camaro 98'' V6 3.8L Engine, I never did any upgrading to the other two besides a 40$ performance chip. Now that I finally have some money I''ve done a little bit of work so far to my current Camaro. I''ve put on a Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust and SLP Cold Air Induction Package. What else can I upgrade in order to get a good amount of power out of my engine. Any ideas are good and price isn''t an issue, and I don''t wanna take it as far as an engine swap. Performance related only please I''m kinda new to this stuff a "noob" if you may. Thanks in advance !

Luke

I also have the ram air and a magnaflow catback. They both made a pretty noticable difference, but if you want to feel a big difference, do a gear swap. It's not an engine mod that adds horsepower like you wanted, but it makes the car accelerate much quicker and launch better if you get posi.

Check your door jam for these codes:
GU4- 3.08
GU5- 3.23
GU6- 3.42

G80- LSD "posi"

However, read the stickies in the V6 sections if you want more engine mods.
