I have some mods on my car that people like to know about. I plan on making some videos so you can get an idea of what my exhaust sounds like, intake and other such mods. So give me some ideas and I can do them within an hour. Some ideas are
1) Inside video of car at WOT so you get an idea of how hard the Thrasher shift kit shifts since I have it on the highest setting. (I am crazy).
2) Exhaust when its cold (already done) but when car is warm, when car is going down the road, at WOT and inside the car too so you can get an idea of drone for a Magnaflow. But remember, drone for almost all mufflers is at at about 2k rpm, and the magnaflow is no exception. But if you know how to control the RPM'* in your car, you can avoid it since the drone doesnt happen at 2100 rpm and the gearing of our cars allow us to stay at 2k rpm and miss most of the drone of the muffler.
3) Intake, that is only really loud when the engine is cold and it quiets down but I will see what I can do.
Just post some more ideas if you got something I can help you with.
Also, if you guys want me to write some tech articles or something I have time now since its the summer. Teubok, I will talk to you and see what'* possible. I have done polyurethane bushings on my sway bars and they helped alot since the front sway bar is a good size. Odds are I will have to custom make a rear sway bar. Since we share body type with Oldsmobile Aurora'* I am seeing if we can use any parts from that since one of my friend'* dad'* sells Oldsmobiles and they dont really sell anymore so I can just stare at it all I want or probably have him take it home so I can observe it for as long as I want.
But sorry for getting off topic, if you have ideas for tech articles post them and we can see if it can be done. One idea I had was what differnt parts each of the years the Bonneville'* had. It seems most of us have 90-99 Bonneville'* here so we can see the differences of all our years and compare. Probably some other ideas of maybe having a good FAQ to alot of generally asked questions. Also a good stereo FAQ and such would probably help since alot of people have aftermarket systems in their cars and want to know the specs and know what kinds of subwoofer boxes will perform best in their trunks and such. I could probably put that together since I have the formulas for all that around here.
On a side note I dont know if I will be putting subs in my car for weight reasons and expense and other plans but I might build a custom "experimental" box which might give people an idea of how they can set up their systems in their car. I had an idea of using 2 12" subs on the outsides of the trunk and 1 10" so that you can get the low-mid-high end of the bass spectrum since there is alot of space in our trunks to do it. So yeah... to sum up this paragraph is to do a nice in depth stereo tech section/paper or something.
Also, post other idea'* of mods, I know I have a bunch that I will be doing/experimenting on my car, (most experimentation will be with the suspension). So that'* my rant, and I hope to be able to read lots of good ideas in this thread.
