CAI, exhaust, tune, an assload of stickers. You can prolly get 500HP that way. 100 with a K/N Intake, 50 with exhaust, 25 with a tune, and easy 325 with a sticker like I have on my rear window.

I was serious about the first three. A swap is always fun, though. Do the RWD mod and drop in a LS9. (EvilER face)

L32 is rated at 260hp, the 3.9L is rated at 233hp...I'm pretty sure you can make up the difference in bolt-ons and tune...although I must admit I do not know how far you can hop up the L32...and you'd be surprised at the cost of the RWD conversion, we discussed it in another thread, you can pick up a wrecked vette for 3-5k depending on motor and condition of the wreck......mmmm tastey! There's a couple of us saving at this very moment.
