So far i have lid,headers ORY, magnaflow catback, and cam kit, the cam is a 99-224/224-112 Thunder Racing Custom Camshaft - 224/224 .563/.563 112 LSA 1700-6600 RPM Power Band, I don't think the car was ever tuned because the rpm is still at 6000, so im thinking i should pick up some 373's and maybe some heads? what heads would go with this setup, also for a tune should i get gears before a tune or will they affect anything if i get them after a tune? thanks

you can put the gears in before a tune just your speedo will be off.

An intake would be good. You can get used LS6 out of the classified for around $350 usually. You will definitely need a tune after moving to a different gear ratio.

You definitely need 4.10 gears, a good clutch, and a good tune.

LS6 intake, heads, gears, and tune after everything would be the direction I would go

You would probably be disappointed with 3.73 gears it would be a pretty small change going from 3.42 to 3.73 gears. I'd go for 4.10's or higher, you could run 4.30's and still run less rpm in high gear than a A4 car with 3.23's. Also you need to decider if you ever plan to run drag radials, if so you'd be better off saving your money for a 9 inch than spending money on your 10 bolt, with a M6 I'd say you've got a 95% chance of breaking your 10bolt with sticky tires. If I were you I'd start with a LS6 intake and a tune, and then save for a 9 inch rear, adjustable torque arm, lower control arms, and panhard bar.

I'd definitely start saving for a rear since your car is an m6. Heads would be nice but I'd rather have a cam only car with a built rear instead of a H/C car with a busted rear. Unless you can afford both, then do both.

I definitly need gears lol, went to the track lastnight, 13.4 best time i ran at 110.34 mph, with a 2.26 60ft....I am guessing 4.10's are to much for my rearend and that i need to go 9 in before i can do anything :(

Suspension mods, fat 315's D/R, or slicks for the track. Tune for sure.
