Guidance for next upgrade needed

Im kinda at a point to where im running out of easy bolt on upgrades for the ga? I'm thinking of either getting a stage 1 cam or 3500 top swap from mms or stretching a little bit and getting the whole stage 1 kit. Would anyone of you know how these would compare? With little though toward money what would be the best bang or bang for the buck of these three mods? I think im addicted..please dont tell mom.

also open for suggestions

I've heard good things about the 3500 top end swap... although I have also heard good things about the cam... I'd say 3500 top end first though.

if you plan to eventually go boosted, you'll see more from the 3500 top end swap.

well i don't think boosted will be in the future, i was just wanting something that wasn't the norm (ie exhaust or intake), also sorry for posting in the wrong section, this will most likely be the last performance upgrade i do to the ga and the only goal i have is to get into the 14 sec 1/4 range, also the claimed gains from the cam (25-30) sound nice and im pretty sure i would be happy with that, thats kinda actually what im leaning toward but yes a 3500 top swap would be nice though, its just harder for me to justify it.

do you have the ability to tune? that is almost a requirement with a cam.

no, the info from the site leads me to believe it wouldnt be to bad with a stock tune, but if i did end up going that route that i would make the trip to see him as i live in the st. louis metro area

with mms's 3500 top swap would there be any additional work that needs to be done for it to work? also would the stock 3500 heads be an upgrade to a set of 3400 ported heads? I think the top swat would make the most sense for me so maybe thats what i will do. I need more opinions i cant make up my mind

I'm gonna go ahead and go for the 3500 top swap, if i can get someone to help with it, it will probably mainly be my dad. Actually today i was thinking about how hard it would be to go boosted, im not sure about that though. Hopefully the swap can be done im maybe a 2-3 months from now as im still getting the cash together.
