Welcome to the forum. Ask the 6.0L tuners if they have experience tuning the 3.6L or can recommend an individual/entity.

Cold air intake, headers, and cat-back exhaust system. Can always search the forum for additional information.

Swap out the stock diff for Camaro 3.27 or 3.45 gearing.
Available used from wreckers or on Camaro Facebook classifieds.
Give it a bit more snap off the line.
Plenty of threads on this board on the subject.
Not a lot of options for big HP increases on our 3.6L's, again plenty of threads to read on this board.

I had a 99 Firebird with a 3.8L. It loved the spray. Ran low 15's and 13.9 with a 75 shot.

256 crank HP + 4000LBS does not a quick car make.

A tune isn't going to help this much either. Rear gears as others suggested will make it feel a bit quicker off the line, but as you also are missing a gear at the top your mileage will suffer on the highway as well.

Agreed, don't know why they just didn't put the 6 speed in the Base model too.
Typical GM....

If they did, it would've been an automatic, which probably would've been adapted from a V8 version to save money. It would've been a bigger dog. It would've been good to have the option of a manual transmission, if some thought was given to proper gearing. Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
