Thumbs up New guy.... glad to be here!

Hey all... been a car guy all my life, and still own the same car I had in high school (24 years now) and even helped form an online forum for that car over 10 years ago now, but my Bonne is new to me and I don't know much about it. It'* a Green '97 SSEi and it'* got some problems which I hope to be able to fix through this forum. (more on that later) Either way, just glad there'* a place to go to get those answers. I've been perusing the sight and loving the pics and am inspired to improve upon the already great looks of the car, as well as the performance. Let the fun begin!

Ken

Dan... thanks for the quick reply... and just so you know, your car was the one I took the most interest in immediately while perusing around. Looking forward to learning all you've done to your car as well as others!

You can make that SSEi super fast. I just dropped in a cam and rebuilt the transmission. Once the tuning it done it'* track time.

Welcome to the group Ken! I joined these guys about a year ago, since then I've dropped about a second and a half off my quarter mile time and I haven't even started tuning.

Dan, did you use the Stage1X blower cam from Intense by chance?

Everyone - I'm excited.... but I have a high-miles engine (160K) so my mods will be mild for now until a possible rebuild is in its future.
