Good service.

Full exhaust system.

TP intake manifold and 1000cfm TB.

In that order. :)

Sounds to me like he doesn't really know what he wants to do though...

Pistons
cam
manifold & T/B

Should all be done at the same time IMO.

If you're not changing the pistons or atleast getting the heads shaved for a bit for comp *shudders* just stick with bolt ons.

Ok thanks, i keep it serviced well, if i do all of that plus the cam change is it definitely worth getting rid of the stock hsv twin system? and if so what would you recommend for the exhaust? thanks.

or screw just bolt ons, just need an idea of where to start first with getting more power out of it, i was thinking of stroking it to 355, then where can you go from there if i want to keep it naturally aspirated??

If you want to stroke it, then do that.

Be prepared though, that it's not a cheap exercise.

If you stroke it with some decent compression (aim for an honest 10:1) nice size cam, T/P manifold (either dual or single plain, depends what you're after) 1000CFM throttle body and mabye a little tidy up of the heads it should make an honest 400HP.

But that'll set you back about $7000-$10,000. That's just the engine, no other driveline work.

1. Plugs, leads, dizzy cap, button, coil
2. Corvette servo if it's an auto
3. Redback 2 1/2" zorst & a new cat if the old one is blocked (if its more than 10 years old then probably it is)
4. Tune

That combo will give you a very respectable car for around $500.

*edit* - you have $15k to spend??? 355 stroker ftw! 10 - 10.5:1 compression and a TP manifold as above ftw!
