Default New Guy Here

I just bought my first Trans Am back in September...2000 Black Stick Shift...Its all stock and I am interested in attempting to get up to speed with the hps the new LS6 has...I have already ordered some long tube headers with a 3 inch collector...the Y pipe and i am working on a inexpensive decent exhaust...I am currently debating on purchasing the LS6 intake manifold...would that help...and SLP airbox lid is on its way to replace the stock lid...any other suggestions?

Welcome to the site! Sounds like you are on the right track, as there are many options. Here are a few I would suggest in a general (but not necessarily written in stone) order of priority:

For Power:

First read all stickies on -then:
Catback (or true duals if you wish)
LT headers / ORY (or true duals if you wish)
Port throttle body
LS6 intake
Forced Induction

Other non-power (but still great) mods:

Rear end

Just a few ideas for you to think about. It really comes down to what you want to accomplish and how much money do you want to spend to do it. The search function works well on this site as most (if not all) of these topics have already been addressed in the past. Good luck!

2000 T/A WS6, Black on Black, M6, LM2 Cat-Back, SLP Y-Pipe, SLP Lid, P&P TB, WS6 Short Throw, Anti-CAGS, Little Tree Air Freshener-Vanillaroma Scent, 1/2 Tank of gas, 7/16 race cam, tornado, "built" engine, "tricked out" suspension.
