Getting My New 06 SS/SC

Hello everyone ! i just wanted to stop in and say great sight. I am going to pick up my 06 SS Sc ( blue ) with the G85 package tommorow! I can't wait , i am trading in my 03 Hyundai Tiburon GT ( v6 6speed ). I will miss the tibby. But, she is falling apart, that heavy pig ran a 14.9 at 94 mph at the strip. But i think the poor cars days are up. It needs almost $5000 in repairs . All mechanical. Tires, clutch, brakes, ball joints, fuel tank pressure valve, evap purge valve, door lock on drivers side and some other odds and ends. None the less i still love the car to death. It just is time for it to go. And im sure once i get the Cobalt tommorow i'll forget all about the tibby. So i have some REALLY stupid questions. Im new to the worls of forced induction boosted cars. What can i do to the SS to make it any faster. Such as blow off valves? cai ? and what not. Also, is there anything one can do to the car and super charger to make them last longer? like maybe synthetic oil ? I am buying the car used , but it only has 20,000km ( 10,000 miles approx ) . Thanks for all your feed back Guys and Gals !!!

My car has 10k also! Please dont take my mods in my sig. seriously, you might hurt yourself! Synthetic oil is standard in the car from the assembly line. CAI, go with whatever you want to choose from. I have the Typhoon (K&N) but I've heard good from Injen also. GM Stage 2 is a must, and to eliminate wheel hop, get the Ingals Torque Damper.
