Best bolt on's????
~Prolly one of the best "BFB" (bang for buck) would be long tube headders.
~Cold Air Intake. This goes along with the "one of the best" BFB listed above.
~Mass Air Flow Sensor Ends
~160 Degree Thermostat
~some sort of custom tune or Hypertech programmer to re-program the computer for better everything. Contact Jamy @ LSracingchips.com and he will help you out. Thats who did my program for my 94 LT1 and he did a great job.
Try the free mods that gain minimal HP, but then again, free HP is better than none at all.
~One would be to relocate the IAT (intake air temp)
~Another would be to do the throttle body coolant bypass mod.
~De-screening the MAF sensor.
~Intake silencer delete
~Gutting the catalytic converter
~Eliminate the skip shift.
~Weight Loss - FREE!!! every 100 pounds less equals 1 tenth off of your ET.
Hope this helps man. Do a search over at some of the LT1 forums located all over the net and you will find lots of mods you can do to the LT1 mill. I have done most of the free mods and most of the $$$$ mods listed. They all seem to do fine, but I never drove it before the mods so I don't have a clue as to how much it helped.
