They've got you covered, including the PCM.

The PCM should be down the road a bit for you. It'* not a power-adder, but will enable other mods to make good power later.

Yup, first things you should think of is a 180* T-stat, and a cold air intake.
Also, you should take a look at doing an upper intake manifold(UIM) replacement. They have a bad habit of cracking around the EGR stovepipe.

Only thing I can think of that won't work is body parts and dashboard stuff. Other members will follow shortly, though, because I'm sure I've left something out.

Hey welcome to the club Roger, we have several active members with Lesabres.

I suggest you visit INTENSE at www.intense-racing.com They have a list that their parts will work on. If your application is not on there, then that means it won't work on yours.
