Maybe upgrade the head unit? That'* an old unit and a newer unit could do wonders for your sound.

He'* a body/paint guy. That car went through the shop last year and is a GEM. No 92/93 will hold a candle to it.

Well I do need to redo the hood (installing GTA vents at the same time), but I need to wait and figure out where I can get used/scrap GTA hood to get the vent cut outs from (I want the "flush" look and not the "raised" look)

but that all depends on finding a hood.

GTA as in Trans Am GTA? My buddy just bought one and picked up new hood vents for it. He may still have the old ones.
