I know it'* a long post with lotsa links that has that "what'* left to say?" look about it, but...does anyone have any feedback regarding the parts? Used 'em yourself or know someone who did? That kind of response.
I was amazed at how fast the money and my pocket parted company.
The research was mostly from the Bonneville Forums, to which I am grateful.
Got the Tax Return and it doesn't take long to $pend it!
I started with Exhaust and Tires and didn't scrimp, either!
I sent my order to Husker High Performance Exhaust in Lincoln, NE for:
MagnaFlow Stainless Steel Camaro/Firebird muffler part# 14266
and a pair of ANSA Stainless Steel Dual Resonator Tips 3x3.5x12" part# TK-7820.
Total with shipping was about $255.00
Installation will be extra and I'll shop around for a professional job.
I went to the local Discount Tire store where I've been a loyal customer for over a decade and dropped a chunk o' change for 5 Goodyear Eagle #1 NASCAR tires in 235/55R16'*.
(OK, so they're on an Intrepid and the letters are yellow...it'll give you an idea of what the tires will look like!)
Total for everything but the 'replacement' fee of $16 per tire was about $660.00
This includes lifetime rotation and flat fixing, mounting and balancing, and the valve stem.
I talked to the guy about having the letters/sections of the wheels lined up when mounted. Prolly can do that.
Notice I said 5 tires. I also ordered a 5th full size wheel in the correct green color for the spare to factor in rotation of the tires. The wheels are the 16x7 Pontiac '12-slot'.
Total for one wheel shipped to my favorite auto wrecking yard was about $93.00
I think that all adds up to about $1000.00, not including the exhaust installation.
Money well spent, I think.
We'll see in the next couple of weeks how it all looks and sounds.
I'll get pictures so I can add to my posts.
That'* what happened after doing countless hours of internet research since I got the '92 SSE and found the Bonneville Forum(*).
Lots of questions; lots of thinking and now, the $$$ talks!
Anybody got any feedback on the choices or recommendations for the MagnaFlow/ANSA installation?
