Default Mods for a 1991 'Ville LE

A couple questions...

First, what is a good air intake that I can install on this car? Any K and N cold flows that would fit? And for how much?

Second, aside from a new air filter, thermo, and coolers, what other mods could I add to my baby?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know much about your intake options, but I do highly recommend adding a STB from a '92-'99 Bonnie. It'* cheap, easy, and makes a big difference. I did mine just this past Friday. Here'* the thread on it if you're interested:

Exhaust. Especially if you do the intake. The ADTR intake should fit your car.

There'* a suggested mod list up in Techinfo.

Yup..I agree. Just waiting for the testing of the Series I ADTR intake. Then I'm getting one, the exhuast makes a BIG difference. I have really noticed an increase in performance.

Bill? with a 180 T- stat, is a trans cooler really needed on our model?

Word on the street is that transmission servicing should be done every 80 000 kms or about 50 000 miles.

I'm not having any tranny problems at all on mine, I had it serviced 2 oil changes ago...long way to go yet before I need another. The cooler will help for sure, lots of work to do this summer...heheh

I'm suprised that you don't already have a trans cooler. What kinda of financial damages are we looking at to do this?
