More Power on My SS?

I have the 2010 1SS Camaro and I want as much horsepower as I can put into my car without putting in a whole new engine in. I'm looking into trying to spend less than $6,000, so that's my cap.
I'm wanting to put it up to at least 600hp as option #1. Option #2 being 700-750hp.

I would like part title names, prices and descriptions if at all possible.

Thank you.

EDIT: Also, I was looking at the HPE site at the HPE550, HPE600, and HPE650. Are these packages worth the parts and power?

Less than $6000? You'll probably want to look into supercharging. Check out the sponsors --->

I'd mod you car in steps to see how you like your car's performance.

Step 1 (40-50hp)
Long tube headers, high flow cats, catback or axle back

Step 2 (40- 50hp)
Cam package - (call Ed at Flowtech for a custom cam to suit your needs) or get advice from a skilled performance shop on a cam.

Step 1+2 = 80 -100hp over stock. On my 05 GTO, I made 95 rwhp running a relatively conservative cam, long tubes, high flow cats, intake, and tuning. This was my daily driver and it ran great. I got the cam from Ed. at Flowtech.

Supercharger or Turbo setup with installation and tuning will most likely run close to $8K- $10K for a basic setup. I personally wouldn't want to go FI without buidling up the motor to better handle the boost.
