    I'm thinking of trading up from my current VF SS sedan (manual) to a VF2 SS.

    Before I do, I was wondering what I need to do (and spend) to equal the LS3 power / torque outputs. Would X-Force headers, cold air intake and tune be sufficient in your experience?

    I already have a 2.5 mild steel X-Force Cat back fitted.

    As the old saying goes... "There's no substitute for cubic inches!"

    (Well, except maybe for forced induction or uber-revs?)

    What are the official figures for the VF1 vs VF2?

    Yes, but the LS3 would get more with the same treatment.

    i think the biggest improvement made to the s2 was the diff ratio the manual gets a 3.7 final drive make the car a lot snappier to drive compared to the s1 other than that its a pissing comp mines .2 of a liter bigger

    Yep, put some diff gears in it, I don't think you are necessarily chasing power or torque unless you want to win dyno comps or drag races (maybe you do??), but having some shorter diff gears will give you the seat if the pants improvement in acceleration that you may be looking for.
    You really need to tell us exactly what you want to achieve.
