Let's flip this around - what do you want the car to be and do and roughly how much money do you want to spend? The group here will then be able to give you a better idea of "upgrades"

Daily driver, weekend cruiser, dragstrip warrior, roadtrip machine will have different upgrades (and not always complementary either)

Pretty much a weekend driver I thought about an Ls swap but my motor only has 125k miles and runs great if I can get about 400 horsepower with close to the same amount of torque that’ll be good

1) Tri-Y Headers from Clear Image Automotive
2) Yank Torque Converter “3200 Stall”
3) A good 2.5” catback Exhaust
4) 373 Gears in the rear end, mine as well have it rebuilt.
5) And a good PCM tune from Marky Dissod here on the forum.

With those basic bolt-ons you’ll be impressed.

Read that first. You aren't hitting 400 WHP with the stock block though.
Why can’t you make 400whp with a stock block ? Just takes a healthy heads and cam combo with supporting mods Longtubes,fuel injectors, etc
