Cool I'm new, whats it to ya?

I'd like to start off by thanking everyone on here for the wealth of knowledge and information in this community. I recently purchased a 97 Bonneville SSEi with 135k on the clock and a gas leak; 850 bucks later, the car is running spectacularly. These forums have already helped me make some decisions on where i want to take the car in terms of performance and styling. I come from the world of DSMs (recently sold my 91 talon TSi) where parts are all over the place, the aftermarket is enormous, and the boost flows freely. The world of 3800s is a little different in terms of selection and aftermarket choice, but there are plenty of things i have planned after only a few days on the forums. Once again, thanks a bunch you guys! I hope this is the beginning of some good things!

Welcome to the site. Plenty of performance mods available. Body mods, there'* nothing. What ever you need, just ask.

:Welcome Devin!! $850 in gas problems???? Sounds like a sending unit, pump, filter and lines?? Just finished that on my 99 SSEi!! Everyone here is great to help that car achieve your wildest ideas!!

When you get a minute Devin, please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there

I am also a DSM'er that has moved to bonneville'* (they are much more reliable)

I have owned a 92' Eclipse GS, a 1990 Talon TSi AWD and a 1995 TSi AWD

Now me and my girlfriend have a 2000 SSEi, and couldn't be happier!

If you have any question about the switch from Turbo to Super just let me know, I have gotten pretty good at using analogies to describe the two! Welcome to the club and enjoy your stay!
