Grounding kits are said to give some kind of power gains (not much but hey it's something) and some NWP spacers.

Intake

-Headers will give you the most power
-Catback is good with the headers for maximum breathing
-Lightweight crank pulley is a great way to reduced the stress on the engine rotation
-Lighter rims
-BOP won't do much but give a little high end torque
-Intake won't give you nothing noticeable but will make you feel like you just gained 10hp
-TB spacer is a cheap probably DIY mod and the sound is amazing
-Spark plugs upgrade along with the PCV valve
-Those grounding kits are a well marketed product and will do little for you.
-Cams isn't even something to talk about
-And last but not least when you have all possible bolt-ons a tune is imperative to correct air/fuel ratio, give maximum hp and torque and increase your rev limit. By the time you gained power you would of already invest 3-5K in parts and labour.

So my advice is if you're on a budget don't get into performance because there's no stopping. Do the catback with your choice of mufflers, lightweight crank pulley, NWP spacers and your intake and and call it a day. If you want more power and decals, they give you 5hp per decal.

I noticed the difference of the CAI on the highway and some low end lose vs stock. I swapped it back and forth several times.

My low budget would be
CAI
Y-pipe No cat
Cat back system.

Is that low budget?
