More power

1997 Camaro Z28, At the moment my car doesnt have a whole lot done to it, cold air intake, edelbrock shorty headers, high flow cat, flowmaster muffler. But i want more power, not interested in doing head work really, bolt ons are more my speed. What should i do? Programmer? Intake Manifold? etc. Before, what i had done was enough for me, but sad to say i was beat the other day by a 2009 nissan maxima -_- so that definately made me want to do more, kindof embarrassing. Just let me know, thanks

Shorty headers don't do tooo much, but longtubes would be a solid upgrade. Gears and a tune would also be beneficial without breaking your bank.

Programmers are junk have it tuned instead. The factory LT1 intake is a good design changing it won't do much for you without other supporting mods such as a different cam, ported heads etc. changing the rear gears is one of the easiest ways to wake a car up on the cheap.

Depends... With a 6speed Trans 4.10s are great but if you have an auto and do a good amount of highway driving 3.73s would be a better choice. With 4.10s and and auto Trans the MPGs really suffer.

^ This. Really gearing is IMO the best bang for your buck as far as how the car is gonna feel and perform. Gearing will really wake up your car.

Longtubes, Tune, Gears & Nittos, race people from digs. That will be a solid build for those imports.
