Default Haven't posted in a while....I have new pics!!!

Well, I posted a while ago asking if new Bonne rims would fit on my 92 SSEI. Well, I got a set, and they fit!! Take a look at my pics and let me know what you think. Also, what are some good mods? What'* the best exhaust system for supercharged engines? I had 40 series Flowmasters on my GP, but I heard they're no good on SSEi'*. SO, lemme hear some thoughts. I just ordered a set of Jacob'* coil packs and Jacob'* 8.5mm plug wires too. http://f1.pg.briefcase.yahoo.com/bc/....src=bc&.view=

GTP Girl! Where ya been? Car looks great with those wheels. We figured out they'd work while you were gone

Good mods start in Techinfo. Just click the link at the top of the page. There'* a couple good articles on suggested first mods, and airbox/intake stuff. Stuff we've learned the hard way.

As far as exhaust, you MUST open your intake so that SC can breathe first. I suggest (in this order)

1. 180 Thermostat
2. ADDITIONAL tranny cooler
3. Custom intake/cone filter (preferably with heat shield/CAI)
4. EXHAUST.
5. Smaller SC pulley/larger idler

For the exhaust, keep the stock 2.5" piping. It'* all mandrel bent stainless. Just swap out the cat to a high flow design (your year has no resonator) and a performance muffler. Mostly it depends on your sound preference. Somewhere in the performance section are mpegs of my new exhaust, with the Magnaflow F-body muffler. Lots of different ways to go, but like I said, keep the pipes, and replace the cat and muffler.

Welcome back!

I have seen those rims and the 00-01 series on the body style you have here in Chicago plenty of times. Here in the Big City you'll run up on just about every type of bonnie, especially custom made.

Make sure to put up a dialup warning for our less fortunate!

She should get a ADTR
