Edelbrock sells parts for that motor, intake, cam ect. But it's kind of a waste of money, it will still be very slow and likely won't take much abuse before breaking.

That's a brick for a six. I don't know why GM made that engine an option for that car. My favorite way to add horsepower to any car is drop at least a 350 in it. You can turbo, supercharge, cam, maifold, or run rocket fuel but ultimately, there's no replacement for displacement.

Agreed. There are parts for them but it really depends on how much performance your going for. In the long run you'd probably get more power for your money with a bigger engine. Unless you went with Nitrous.

Get that "glue on 2 more cylinders" kit and you'll be set. Sadly, like the others have mentioned it's possible to put a lot of money into high performance parts and still have not much output
