Default The Saga Continues

Well, as I posted earlier I traded cars with my Dad. And to tell you guys the truth, I have been missing the the bonnie. Everything about it, the sound system, the power, how comfortable it was, and most of all, that gorgeous whine! So, I think that I am going to go back to the Bonnie. I hope that my dad hasn't grown attatched to it. Now, for my next point, how much more power will a 2.4 inch supercharger pulley, a 2.3" get me? Also, when I was driving it, I noticed that if I got on the accelerator pretty hard, the SES light would pop on, after I took off it would go off. What is this all about? When I brought it to the shop the other day, they couldn't find anything wrong with it. So, I don't know. Just thought I would let you all know that the Bonnie has blown it'* magic powder on me, and that I miss her a lot.

You ought to have a history code set. Get the codes read.

Even when my 83 C15 was running I only drove it to get parts or move big things, Bonne wins.

I'm not sure if the shop scanned it, I will have them do that come spring. I am also going to do that pulley mod, what'* better than an extra 30 hp for $60. I also would like to replace the fuel tank, because having to fill up every other half-tank really started to **** me off. After the pulley, I am going to toss an exhaust on. For the exhaust, what would the difference between getting a high-flow cat, resonator, and new muffler and getting just a muffler be? Do I need the cat and resonator?

Id say between 5 to 10 HP per mod depending on how restrictive the part that you get is ,
Magnaflo and flowmaster being in the upper HP range
you can add just one at a time or due it all at once if you got the funds
