id suggest an off road mid pipe. x pipe gives better flow to the v shaped blocks and give more torque in the higher rpm's. if you do decide to get a mid pipe get mil eliminators. another nice mod would be gears. 3:73s if you want to put a blower/turbo on it eventually or 4:11s if your planning on staying NA. other than that a basic. cold air intake, full length subframe connects, and a custom tune.

cold air intake
underdrive pulleys
and some gears will all make it faster for a relatively small price

Depends on what you want to do. You going to stay N/A? then 4.10's would be better to get the most out of your car. F/I, then I would go with 3.73's.

n/a means no supercharger,nos,turbo and f/i is forced induction which is adding what i just listed so if you plan to add a f/i go with 3.73 and if you stay n/a go with 4.10

Depending on the kits itself, anywhere from 4k to 7k. That's not including install costs.
