to be honest you'd be happier just getting a v8 the v6 will never give you hp that you want but to get a good low growl sound go straight pipe, swap out the cam (depending on what you wanna go: horses or torque) an aftermarket intake and aftermarket headers with small weight reduction (like removing the headers and a bunch of extra crap you don't need under the hood) and you'll be happy with the result. also reading through some chevy forums (google chevy forum) will give you car, year, and motor specific tips you wont find in any book.

the easy thing to do is just remove the box for a straight pipe.

well yeah lol thats what i did first too, i just wasnt sure if were supposed to be giving any and all suggestions or proffesional ones

Cold Air intake, Exaust specifically(Glasspack), Headers,Super Charger, Dont put in a turbo charger it will whistle and thats not a v8 sound its more tuner DRIVE SYSTEM the only thing between your horsepower and the speed is your drive system so rear diverential or a transmission change can help

ha ha more tuner? ill show you a twin turbo sequential v8 that'll keep up with any supercharged v8 and get there with no stress to the motor and a half tank lol and i bet if you popped the hood and counted you'd find 8 whole cylinders. thats why everyone has the same shit cuz no body does anything new. and supercharger is one word by the way lol

45

oh and by the way the high output superchargers whistle of the line go on youtube ha ha. do you hang around cars at all or are you just repeating old information
