12 sec ETs?

I have had all sorts of performance vehicles. My favorite so far has probably been my 03 Cobra that ran 11.7 @ 122.99 MPH on a stock size DR. I have recently purchased an 06 AWD TBSS and i have to admit i know nothing about the GM engines or what to do to them. It has the muffler and resonator removed with a flowmaster super 40 in the stock mufflers place and a K&N intake. I love this truck but i want something faster again. I was wondering how far do i have to go to get this truck into the 12s or is it better money invested to buy something else and keep teh TBSS as a Daily Driver? I dont want to spend the money on a supercharger and i dont want to tear into the internals either. My thoughts were Vector ECM and Long Tubes witht he high flow cats. any input would be greatly appreciated

bolt-ons w/ a good stall and headers will get you into the 12's as a daily driver.

I dont know how i feel about rearing apart the tranny either. Is it possible without the stall and what bolt ons do you think would be necissary?

it's goin to be hard to get into the low 12's without tearing into something i would have to say header back exhaust, tune, CAI, E fans, and an underdrive pulley would get you started.

If i could run a 12.9 on bolt ons i would be happy as can be. My thoughts to add to the CAI catback combo that i have right now was long tubes high flow y pipe, tune, and e-fans. I see some peopl on here use the LS7 throttle body... is that worth the money? also what about the 160* thermostat? and what underdrive pulley do you guys run?

Obviously i dont have an SS but i've heard that the ls7 TB is worth it to get, lets more air in when at WOT, the 160* t-stat will help your engine run cooler then without it, which in turn will help your et's, as for the UD pulley i dont know what they all use but i've heard of some nice HP gains from doing it though so it sounds like a good option to me.
