VY commodore acclaim
hey all, im 19 and driving a v6. i obviously cant drive a v8 or a turbo'd car. but in the meanwhile thinking of doing some performance mods. possibly? something cheap.. as i dont really want to be spending to much on performance of a v6, but yeah. i heard that vys dont have any software that allows you to tune the computer chip? is this true? if so, what else is possible? fairly cheap..
Cheers

For those of us not on our Ps....what sort of cost would that incur minus the gears and shifter?

get a nice high set of diff gears, high ratio rockers, port the heads maybe cam, and shift kit. No one will know you touched it, yet it will go so much better

Don't expect to get some cheap parts and expect massive gains.

Here's a list of some of the N/A, non strocked and non cammed options:

Intake:
K&N Filter = $90
Lukey Filter = $60
2-hole mod = $20-$30
SS inductions = $400
Mace Engineering CAI = $250
Internals:
YT 1.95 High Ratio Rockers = $700
Mace Engineering 1.9 High Ratio Rockers = $450
Mace Engineering 1.98 High Ratio Rockers = $650
Mace Engineering 25mm Plenum/Manifold Spacer = $180
Mace Engineering 25mm Intake Manifold Insulator = $180
Mace Engineering 69mm Throttle Body = $150-$200
Exhaust:
Pacemaker Headers = $350-$450
Single 2.5" cat back = $175-$400
Twin 2.25" SS cat back = $50-$250
Transmission:
Corvette Servo = $45
Billet Servo = $170
Transgo Stage 2 Shift Kit = $200-$250
Diff:
2nd hand LSD = $500
Brand new LSD = $1500
Mini spool = $100
3.9 Diff gears = $200

That should give you a rough guide on how to get it going a bit quicker. Like I said, don't expect massive gains from little money.
