    CAIs aren't worth it for our cars.

    Being in California means headers won't work. A (mail order) tune might be the next performance mod from wait4meperformance. A primarily appearance-oriented mod would be to lower it.

    Or find a local tuner and get a dyno tune.

    Some folks love putting bigger sway bars on, so that's another option.
    Diff bushing is pretty much a must-do if it hasn't been done already.
    Engine mounts are also pretty much a must-do - if your stockers haven't already failed, they will.

    next mod should be drivetrain or suspension. the power you have is fun at the moment, but if you cant take full advantage then whats the point?

    motor mounts + tranny mount + diff bushing and or diff block
    rear cradle bushings maybe next

    I vote KW V3 and slightly lower it - it will serve you well everyday you drive it.

    Do you know of any V dyno-tune shops on the west coast ? Any certain parameters to be looking for ?
    Thanks

    Anywhere that does vettes you could look into. Do a Google search. Find some shops then maybe inquire to see if others have used them? I personally always like to call speed shops to feel them out. A lot of them think they are the hottest in town, which I don't care for. They typically tune your car one way regardless of what you say, I like to find the tuner that wants to work with you on tuning and will be more than happy to do further tunes down the road.

    Maybe not fun. But necessary.

    I agree with philistine on lowering it also
