You're in Indianapolis! Me too! Let me know if you need help doing something. I have a welding friend that has so far done all my exhaust work. It should be pretty easy to take out that resonator and go to the high flow cat. Do you have a high flow cat yet?

My spring plans are to fix up the audio in the SLO. I have a 4-channel Infinity amp with 110W per channel and a 2400W Rockford Fosgate amp. They'll power 6 speakers and 2 subs. I still have to send out my A-pillars for a custom 3.5" speaker fitting and gauge pods. I'm almost done collecting parts for the SLO'* supercharger upgrade, and I simply need to get heads taken to get machined. Pretty much all the other parts are here.

The 94 has parts slowly coming in for a massive overhaul. That should happen soon... Somewhat soon.

just got the intake from dan a couple weeks ago, cats been removed... thankful for no rear 02 sensor hehe... looking into a smaller pulley, redoing the exhaust, fixing the rust on the rear passenger fender, window tinting...limo dark ... and hopefully some new shoes... 17s and tires

unless of course the intermittent knock gets worse and causes me to have to rebuild her motor, then ill be more on the lines of porting/polished heads, upgrade rockers/springs, aluminum intake gaskets lol, welding the silencers shut on the SC, and porting it and the UIM hehe... and ill prolly paint the SC... black or red is the question?

all depends on her attitude in the next couple months once i rap up finances and get set to drop some $$$.... well see

well i guess this is a list of things that i would like to do this spring summer but teh chances of all of them happening are slim so i will get what i can done and then next spring summer whatever is not on the list is what i have done. LOL

1)Naming the beast!

2)stock Bonneville bucket seats to replace the bench

3)Molding my deck remote and my amp **** to the opening where the shifter would be in the stock center console

4)Removing the side molding and smoothing the side lines of the car

5)satin black paint

6)clearing the headlights

7)either stock G6 GTP chrome rims or some after market five spoke 20s

CAI/FWI/gutted airbox (prolly the latter of the three)

9)High flow cat, flowmaster, and dual pipes

10)...only time will tell

A lot of work. My bonne doesn't have any mods and over this summer I want to put the usual mods in. That'* gonna be a lotta stuff.

Also I'm looking for a junked bonne around yards that I can take interior pieces out to replace broken/lost ones in mine.

Want to replace the transmission when I get the money, and fix AC.

Getting a paint job too eventually.

Rear speakers, either replace with same type or get nice new ones.
Buy CD sleeve/cover plate to give it a finished installed look.
I got some Spray 9, gonna clean my rims today. They're gold, so I gotta keep them looking nice, haha.
Eventually I'm going to put in lights under the driver and passenger'* feet and behind the front seats and put in another switch on my dash for it.
Buy window tint and do my rear and back side windows (NJ doesn't let you do front windows)
Try to diagnose why my trunk button no longer works.

Same as above, except tranny, already done that....

Since gas is creeping back up again, i'm going to do my best to make this thing a gas sipper. I already saw an increase since doing my 3 year old front brakes. You'd be amazed as to how siezed caliper slides can really ding the mileage!

Next is an o2 sensor.

GTP can rot
Regal.. diganosed as a missing #4 piston. Have it running and on the road for tomorrow.

How can you tell a caliper is seized? I just recently replaced my pads and one rotor but I didn't clean my calipers.

And yeah I know what you mean, I just did a 400 mile trip, round-way. Whenever I know I'll be making longer drives I put a bottle of STP in my tank, gives my V6 engine a bit more kick and runs smother for the trip on less gas. This is also why I am interested in modding stuff like the air intake and exhaust, to make my car more efficient.

it would be the slides on the caliper(pins) they get coroded and is a good idea when doin brakes to pull them out and clean em up with a wire wheel and put some brake caliper lube/grease on them before puttin back together. reminds me i should check my rear brakes soon...new spring plan
