your best bet bang for buck is to lower your gears to 4.10s. these things dont resond well to bolt ons unless you have supercharger.

PI swap. I never heard of making a car really any faster without spending any money.

PI swap,gears, and exhaust to make it sound naughty. Then be done with it because you will be wasting money.

PI Swap = Plenum/Intake Swap. More fuel = more power.

PI swap = performance improvement. Correct me if im wrong but its heads and intake from a 99+ GT that gives it more compression which ='s more power
