headers are DEFINATLY worth the money, those shocks in there now are bilsteins? id just keep them, maybe a bump steer kit?? very nice termie, but cams arent worth the hassle for the slight gain that u will get imo, but the motor is built it could have them already possibly???

I have to disagree. Cams will yield more power than headers in most cases. Headers IMO aren't worth the money. I had my car setup almost the same as he has his. I think throwing a nice audio system and good brakes would be the fun mods to do.

The sound you get from LT's is better then any audio system sound!

In my opinion headers would be perfect and then go with the suspension and bigger brakes. But besides that just enjoy your beautiful piece of machinery!

the hp gain from LT's or Cams in this case would be about the same, either way its 1500 in parts and a PITA to install, i say throw some CC plates on it, bumpsteer kit, maybe a coil over kit and call it Done

Well, you can fit 335's with the IRS, but you have to fabricate new mounting points for the IRS and use smaller bolts to secure them to the chassis. I've had it done, and Blackonblack just did it himself with his car.

335's are like 500/piece though, and they don't last but maybe a year with regular use.

I've seen a couple guys running nitrous through KB's, and it's actually a decent idea, almost like Methanol/water injection, it cools the intake charge.

But I like how you said you won't be hitting the track, when a Two step limiter is specifically for the track.

anyway, with 622+ at the wheels, I'd leave it as is, sounds like the previous owner got all the work out of the way for you
