    first what motor do you have?

    i think as far as the best bang for your buck you need three things.

    1 raise your compression (high compression pistons and or shaved head)
    2 port and polish the intake and exhaust ports in the head
    3 more aggressive cam or cams

    yes a good rule of thumb, to make ur car a bit faster, shave 20thousands off the head, use a 2 layer head gasket. u can get your cam ground for good HP gains, but it CAN kill your valvetrain if not done correctly. you can also advance ur timing with a cam gear for maximum results. also PnP is a good choice.
