    Try and get a wrecked VS V8 with a good drivetrain and strip it down to put in yours, that's the best performance upgrade available for the V6's :p

    Thats everything I was going to suggest, although with both the shift kit and gears you might go a bit over-budget.
    Have you already done anything?

    if u dont mind fuel price throw a set of gears in it like 3.9s and seen as ur in perth i know a guy that will set up a diff for $200 or less but he will want all new seals and bearings and he would want diff out of car not sure if ur much of a diy person but yer well worth it

    you can either do it urself or you can pay some1 id get a quote just to see wat sort of dollars your up for
    enhanced automotive are in sa and are a site sponsor and they do it for 1450 any set of gears recon lsd drive in drive out

    if you are going to do it urself its best to pay some 1 to setp ur diff as it isnt the easiest and that will cost u 200
    plus seals and bearings about 150
    gears are about 150 second hand off ebay
    you will need a carrier diff if are interested i have one for irs 50 bucks but they would cost about the same for non irs
    lsd centre is 350 off ebay irs or 300 non irs
    these prices are above wat it should cost im being generous so all up u could get it done for under 850 bucks if ur willing to do a bit urself


    failing this just get a nos kit
