It all depends on how you use your car and what you want to get out of it? Oh, and how do you define inexpensive?

An intake and cat back package tend to be pretty automatic when people start modifying their cars. They will add a little power and make your car sound a hell of a lot better. A sway bar upgrade will transform the way your car handles and is pretty easy to install.

Probably the engine performance best-bang-for-your-buck mod would be a VMAX CNC Ported Throttle Body.
They're cheap, super easy to install, add a few horses and add a few torques which is cool, but the best part is the improved throttle response. It feels like a different animal
That combined with a nice cold air intake, and exhaust will make it perform great and sound great!
Then there's the whole suspension upgrade side.....

There's plenty of good bolt-on mods for the 6.2L. But inexpensive, ummmm define inexpensive, because IMO, I don't think the two go hand-in-hand.

There's quite a few things you can do like intake and exhaust that won't cost a huge amount. Exhaust can be pricey. My corsa was more then the average system.
