Gen 5 Camaro External Bolt-On Tech - want more power on budget

2012 Camaro 1ss.
I intalled kooks headers with the high flow cats and flowmaster american thunder kit so far. Going to put in a k&n intake in a week or so. what are the best and most affordable bolt ons or tuner power upgrades to help me get up there. Money being a factor? Thanks

There's a relatively inexpensive mod that is good for about 6-8rwhp!

You can have the stock intake and throttle body ported for fairly cheap and pick up 8 or so. The best bet for tuning is an actual dyno tune rather than a hand held. Most tuners give you a price break on retunes for additional mods as well.

I'm doing an UD pulley next week along with some other stuff, I think you've done all the other obvious mods.
Obviously a cam would kick up the power quite a bit.

I've heard about the throttle body spacer but havnt heard much promise. And ya i think a camshaft is gonna be next in line. if i were to do the trottle body would that affect how the k&n will fit? And what is a semi aggressive camsaft that u would recomend for still good daily drivability? Thanks

The K&N CAI will still fit after porting the TB. The opening is enlarged and smoothed out so the inside diameter is larger and flows better. I haven't seen or heard anything about anyone picking up power from the spacer so I don't know how effective they are at helping power production. They move the TB only about an inch though so once again your CAI should still fit.
