Well i'm looking at more parts to buy and i haven't really decided to do next so i'm brain storming. What do you guys think i should do next?
All i have now is a short ram intake, new spark plugs, and a front strut bar.

This is for a LS 96 auto. I don't really want to go totally insane and do a engine swap/s/c/t/c but is there anything else that would help?

Should i be going exhaust/headers?

you have intake already, so the next step is header, cat, & exhaust. this will not make your engine work harder but will free up potential and/or bottled up performance that was already there. i would get cat & exhaust before headers.

In order for the exhaust SYSTEM to work to its full potential you have to buy headers, cat, and cat-back. there is no need to waste time buying just one, or even two. save up and buy the system as a whole. that way you really see gains. also think about the fact that you have a naturally aspirated engine, if you truely do plan on keeping it like that you are going to want 2.25" piping.
hope that helped.

If i were you start thinking of forced induction, it is kind of expensive but its well worth it as long as you maintain your car. I myself have a turbo automatic 96 teg. You'll notice a world of a differance with FI then the NA route on automatics. just my .02 cents

At what rpm does your turbo kick in? Do you have any mods to your transmission?

About the Cat... if ur current cat is pretty new theres no need to up grade to a new cat... That could potentially lead to back pressure.....So if ur cats new and clean..keep it untill u get at least 60k miles on it. If ur well past that get a race cat.. but u still may have the back pressure issues.......
