What else can I do to make my 97 GT faster?

I already have a different throttle body and intake which is made by accufab and a tune. What else can I do inexpensively?

Manual 373s. Auto 410s. Yea if u aren't working with enough money for the full pi swap, then you can pick up a pi intake manifold for $100 and put it on. Adds around 30 hp. Im doing it in a few weeks

You need to do a full PI swap though.

Pi intake manifold swap is possible w/o doing the full swap.

PI swap is probably the best bang for you buck if you get the parts used from a 99-04 PI

Full PI swap*

throw on underdrive pulleys they free up a little power pi intake with the conversion kit, then 3:73 gears. pi heads and cams make a huge difference but cost alot to

3.73 gears is what we all agree is a good gear, as for pi swap, i would do it, since our cars come stock non pi heads. I have pi heads and intake, and yes it does wake up the motor and raise the compression to 10.5:1 roughly. along with that, headers and exhaust if u dont have either one already, that should be a nice base start
