A little money to spend need advice

Hey guys I have a little money to spend and want to spend it on my car. Itís a 08 gt. Only mod to the car is an off-road xpipe. Completely stock otherwise. It isnít my daily driver, although I drive it a lot in nice weather. Iím very mechanically inclined and have a friend with about 40 years of heavy engine work under his belt so anything is possible. Iím talking stroker kits, porting and polishing, balancing rotating assemblies. Nothing is off limits as this guy is the guy that everyone calls to build engines for them. Hes a Chevy guy is the only problem, but will help me if I need it. I have about a $1000 to spend and am leaning towards nitrous. The main reason is bang for the buck. Iím thinking about a 75hp shot until I can come up with more money to buy the tuner and run a 100 shot.

I was was also thinking of buying a tuner instead but 20hp vs 75hp for around the same money is heavily waying on my mind.

I was thinking about camming the car but I donít want to lose bottom end. I nice lopey idle would be amazing though.

Any and all all suggestions are welcome. Keep in mind I only have $1000 to spend.

Another point to to make is I would like my tires to melt, and I mean sizzle when I do a burnout lol.

Good suggestion. That would leave money for something else.
