    I am adding shortie headers, hi flowcat, flowmaster 40 series and a k&n. What kind of hp gain am I looking at. everything else is stock. what other stuff can I do to get the most out of the engine, without spending a lot of money?

    Eh, maybe 30-35 max.
    For around $500 you could put in vortec heads, the vortec-tbi intake manifold - and you'll have added another 30 hp.
    But, you're in the right area....these engines love/need to breathe. You really can't get too radical with the TBI computer controlled engines without major mods to the computer and major $$$.
