trade in on a northstar or a sts-v

There are no practical performance enhancers for these cars other than an exhaust or CAI that do little more than add noise. If you have visions of a hotrod you bought the wrong car.

Yeah, the presence of the STS-V in the market also keeps the majority of performance enhancements focused on that model.

The Northstar does a good job of providing significant every day performance in a deceptive luxury car.

The airbox already has enough flow. Already have dual exhaust, more freeflowing pipe/muffler will probably only add rumble and "maybe" a couple of HP. Changing your gears will make you quicker off the line and give the feeling of more HP. As above, find a decent price on a used V.
