Default mods

I am going to put an intake on it, I always run 93 octane gas, and maybe some exhaust. Will a 3.4" work ok on my car or are there other mods I need to do first?

Only other thing I would do is get plugs that are 1 step colder then normal. I do not remember which those are, I'm sure someone else does.

Most mods go in groups and affect each other. Bare minimum is an intake to go with the pulley, so it can breathe better.

Insurance would be the 180 thermostat and trans cooler.

After that, the next logical step would be exhaust. You gotta get that extra front end flow out the back!

Hi!

I have been looking into some mods for my ride, but I'm still under warranty(I bought an extended one). I installed a k&n filter into my box as I was worried that the other(cold air intake) would void my warranty. I probably won't do any major mods, but the 3.5 pulley adding 20 hp/40-45lb.ft. sounds real nice! I'll just have to wait for that.

I noticed that some of you have the irridium spark plugs. I think I have platinum ones stock. Will it help any to use the irridium plugs as far as performance gains? They're expensive, but if they'll add some hp then it'* all good. Also, what about double platinum plugs? Are they worth the upgrade from regular platinum plugs?

Outside of the k&n I'm stock right now. My bonne ssei is dark blue and man she looks good!

ps. My old car was a 92' ssei all white with a grey interior. I had a moon-roof on it, but not on my new one.

Kevo, just do the intake/CAI, and keep your old parts. If you have to go into the dealer for service, it'* a 5 minute swap. I also seriously doubt they would notice an aftermarket pulley. If that scares you, just buy a puller. You can swap pulleys (if everything goes right) in about 15 or 20 minutes.

Thanks for you response! What size pulley is best if I intend to do no more mods? Should I use the 3.5"? I saw someone post that a 3.4 or smaller is better for cars with more mods and a 3.5 is best for stock to little mods. What are the dangers to having the SC winding up higher? I don't want to run anything that will hurt me in the long run. My old '92 ssei is still running @ 200k miles and I'm hoping for the same with this one!

What do you think about the spark plugs? I saw someone reccomend plugs one notch colder then stock for cars with little to no mods. They mentioned the AC Delco 41-932 to which it was said the stock number may have changed on it.

Thanks for your responses!

I think the 3.5 or 3.6 would be just fine, but one of the Series II guys should chime in here. You're not going to shorten the life of that SC any. I'm running EXTREME rpms on my M62, with no ill-effects. They're nearly bulletproof.

With the higher boost, I think one heat range colder would probably be a good idea. I plan to do that next time around, but I'm sticking with the NGK V-Powers. I love those plugs. Don't go platinum anything, and stay the hell away from Bosch everything. Either NGK or AC Delco plugs are best. NGK makes the Delco'*.

You can go right to the 3.4" with no problem. That was my first mod after installing the trani cooler with just a flat fram air filter in the stock box and no exhaust mods. It really made a noticeable change in this cars attitude.
As soon as I free up the exhaust a little with headers and off road pipe, I will go to a 3.25" pulley.

Yes, but you also plan on doing other mods in the future. A 3.5" would make more power on most stock SSEi'* than a 3.4" because the 3.5 is going to have little or no KR, whereas the 3.4" will usually have 5 or so degrees of KR. So if all you want to do is a pulley, the 3.5 is a good choice, otherwise go with a 3.4 or smaller.
