Been out of the L scene for quite some time now but back in the day I'd have suggested a 4lb lower "quick change" pulley, Bassani exhaust, and JLP intake.

Some guys prefer the MagnaFlow exhaust.

I like Magnaflow myself. Great quality and very good flow, yet not overbearingly loud.

Increases the boost output of your SC. Assuming you still have the OEM Eaton charger, it boosts the output from the stock 8lbs to approximately 12 lbs.

Without a custom tune, 4lbs is the most you would want to go.

I always liked the magnaflow myself. Stock sounding enough at idle, aftermarket sounding enough on the throttle. Has a nice rumble to it. I have a billetFlow power pipe intake stuffed on a shelf in my garage thats for sale...
