Hey! I really like this sight. I'm the proud owner of a 2000 bonneville ssei. I previously owned a '92 ssei which my brother now owns and is still kickin' with around 200,000 miles on it. It was white with a grey interior. My 2000 is dark blue with a grey and charcoal interior. I have a co-worker who has really gotten me interested in doing some mods. I'm not looking for anything major, though I'd like to add 20-40hp'* to it eventually. It'* still under warranty so I need to be careful I don't go too far for now and get messed out of it.
I haven't worked on modern cars with computers and sc'* so I'm learning a lot from this site as I go through your posts. I used to own a '69 nova ss with a 350, holley 750 double pumpers, headers and glasspacks (lol) My exhaust ended where my front seat head rest is. I had corvette chrome valve covers, and metallic hoses. I had a pretty high rise on my intake manifold too! I had a lift kit picking up my rear a bit, and a tach on my dash. I had the 350 turbo tranny. She was blue with a black interior. After I sold her, the dude'* girlfriend wrapped it around a telephone pole and totalled it!
So far I've just took my old air filter out and installed a k&n filter in it. It'* not as good as a cone set-up like I see in some of your cars on this site, but at least I'll pick up a few hps and she'll breathe a bit better. I'm looking to install a 3.5" pulley and get a 180 thermostat, though I'd love to hear more from anyone who can school me more on these.
Anyone got a series II out there who've put a pulley on and the 180 thermostat as well?
My name'* Kevin but my friends call me kevo. I'm 35, a vet(Army) where I was a bradley mechanic and served overseas, married, and with my first child on the way!!!!
I work as a shipping coordinator for a bioscience company in the Cleveland, Ohio area.
Anyway, I'm real glad to have found this site. Take care ya'll
