I have a 2001 SSEi. I've been wanting to starts mods forever now but just haven't ever gotten around to it not to mention I haven't tinkered enough to be able to do the installs myself and our cars aren't exactly Mustangs when it comes to avaliabiliy of mods. I have 95K on my Bonny and everything is stock except for the following things:
18" Chrome Eco Mia Rims
255/45/ZR18 Michelin Pilot Sport A/*
K&N Drop-In Air Filter
K&N Oil Filter
Right now I have 5,000 for mods, etc. I'm active duty Air Force stationed in Boston and just moved out here from Los Angeles. I've been a member of this site since 2002 and would love to separate my car from the "pack". I understand that you and Scott have rediculous fast cars in part because you guys are Intense and are able to do your own mods, etc. I looked at your mods and honestly I don't full understand the applicability of each mod with respect to how much it does for the car in terms of power.
The reason I used the 400HP as a reference point is because last year I had thought about trading in my Bonny for an '05 GTO but decided against it. I'm planning on putting in a Pioneer AVIC N-2 DVD/Navigation system in next week and would love to add a dash kit like in the '04/'05 Bonnies and get a two-tone leather as well.
However for the power piece I'm not sure where to start. I know that on the intense site you guys have the Stage 3 package but that is priced at $1899 without labor and that only nets a 94 CHP gain which would put me at 334...not enough
I also can't bring my car out to Ohio as much as I'd like to. Anyway, as you can see I am COMPLETELY serious about doing some serious modding so please get back to me.
