      I wouldn't imagine they would do anything either, especially if your running some sort of CAI. You really don't have to spend a big amount for that either. I just grabbed a cone filter, then grabbed some piping at Auto zone and stucl the cone in the hole left by the original air filter setup. You will feel a difference with that.

          Exactly why I kept it low. Not bad for under, say $70. I ended up putting a walker out back with bigger exit pipes, so that may have skewed the actual results, but she sure did get.....hmmmm, snappy, I guess would be the word.

              you really wont feel much if any of a difference with those mods on a v6. MSD ignition? dunno about why you would upgrade that.. I would just make a cold air intake with a new filter, thermostat isnt that bad I suppose for the 5 bucks they cost. If you want to feel any difference at all I would put 3.73 gears in with posi in the rear end (forget the headers you car isnt forcing enough air in to really warrant them on a v6, put the money towards gears and posi). Unless you add a significant power adder gears are about all that will make a difference in feel. Also put a catback exhaust on the car if you havent already, wont feel too much gains but it will at least make the car sound better.

                  no its not, i bought a 1999 ls1 car this fall after selling my 1999 v6 and insurance went up like 50 bucks over 6 months..If you are set on the v6 (I used to be at one time) I still wouldnt get headers you can barely see them anyway lol nitrous is cheap though? you could probably get a nitrous kit for the price of headers and runa small shot on an otherwise stock motor and be just fine.

                    since you have the gears/lsd already, next I would suggest CAI and I would say get the headers, they do help for some power on a 96. Then your intake and exhaust are all set.

                    Ever think of a small shot of nitrous for some extra power?

                      Hey I understand trying to beef up the V6 because i had a 93 v6 camaro but seriously man trust me on this one. Pick up a cheap Z28 and the money you will save from the bolt ons and all that will pretty much cover the extra little for insurance. I wasted so much money trying to do all that and then ended up buying a z28 and i was SO much happier. And i guess if this is an option put the car in your parents name if you have that option and that will also save ALOT! OR go with 4:10's...then you'll really notice that!

                          that leaves nitrous open, its cheap.... just as cheap as headers for a nice used kit and 50 times the power gains with only 50 shot..

                            that doesn't make sense as headers will give you more than 1 horsepower...

                              i was thinking the same, and headers give it a better sound also its a constant effect even if its not as much i dont ever have to pay out the a$$ to refill headers lol
