Okay i'm new to this site but very familair to how this site in general works. I got a great deal on my 2000 Bonneville SSei.

I'm looking this year with my taxes to make some upgrades for performance wise.
my car came with 17" Goodyear tires.

The only thing i have done to it recently was get a Viper 150ESP system put it.
I keep hearing about Thraser CAI'*, modular pulleys and stuff like that.

I need some insight this is my 1st GM car. I'm a FORD truck man still own my 79 F-100.
I need some links and all advise all of you have out there.

Welcome, and no matter what these guys say, Ford rocks I used to drive a 95 F-150. Your car sounds AWESOME, and good luck with the upgrades. These guys will be excellent help.

Welcome to the club. I've owned a few Ford Trucks myself. Although I prefer the styling of the 70'* Chevy Trucks, you can beat the Fords for reliability.

Welcome aboard, I too have an old Ford F-100 that I can't even remember when I bought it. "Lurch" is just a piece of crap, not one part is free of dents. I do keep the oil changed and even wash it once every decade or so. Always starts, even after sitting for months. What a piece of crap....I love it.

Thanks for the welcome invitation. I guess i need to take a nice phot of her and place her up in here.

I would like to find some more information on making her stronger and faster. Window tint is coming in few weeks, including the power moon roof.
See you all again soon.
