Cai, full exhaust, gears, throttle body, tune. Those would be the best unless you want to spray it or boost it then you get into building the motor

You are going to hear a lot of opinions on this subject, I'm going to tell you the basic stuff. Keep in mind the year you have, sometimes that creates a differ. Anyway, CAI (cold air intake) Exhaust (X or H) pipe, Rear End Gears (373,390,410), Tuner (SCT, Diablosport Preditor,etc.). These things I just mentioned will give you the feel and what you are looking for and the price is not Bad either. A little extra money and a Super Charger will give you even more HP.

Re: Adding horse power!

no bolt on is gonna give you a ton. Nitrous is the cheapest way to get some power. Forced induction is the best way to go

If you don't already have a tuner then I would get that as well!.. You can do things like a CAI, exhaust and all, and you will see some gains!.. But without a tuner you will not see the real potential of these mods!.. The tuner is kinda like the glue that brings it all together!.. And most especially if you have an automatic!..

Re: Adding horse power!

the best place to start is the planning stage. Before a dollar is spent research what XYZ and all the other mods will get you in the end and find out if that will make you happy (its really hard to say 350hp will make me happy! as once you get there its either not what you expected or you get used to it and want more its never ending....)
