I'd say go for the DP. It will give you the most power and I think the install should be doable. I feel your pain about installing headers on an LS1 motor. I've done several LT1 and LS1 headers and each time I swear I will never do one again (It's a love hate relationship). The 6 Y pipe bolts will make you want to commit suicide. Have you done an opti-suck swap on an LT1? That's another PITA.

Thanks, I've been thinking the pita factor could cause a problem with me installing it and the idea of a CEL makes me nauseated. A buddy at work also has a Mitsu 1 gen crushed bov he wants $30 for. The intake sounds like the least troublesome mod and I'm sure it's at least good for 20 hp. Sucks the DP is so much work. Maybe the prices will drop or more will become avail if I wait a few months.
No, I didn't have the fortune of replacing an optispark. Glad I didn't. I've done 3 sets of suspension springs on F-bodys, valve springs (ls1), headers, various bolt ons. When I was 19, (1990), I put a set of Eibachs on my 1990 Civic Si in my mom's driveway with threaded spring compressors!!!

What's wrong with threaded spring compressors? I still own, and use, those bad boys. Hopefully, I'll be using them again soon if I can scrounge up a few extra bucks for the auto exe set.

As far as the intake goes, do you have any idea which one you are going to splurge (lol, splurge is such a nasty porn-style word) on? I know you mentioned AEM, but why not CPE?
