sup , This site is great and the people are great .... i currently own a 2000 ssei 58000 miles bought used in '03 .... problems so far are steering wheel grindage, bubbling paint on hood, both rear regulators went on me and i got the classic trunk leak WOOO HOOOOO! most of these were recalls but i bought it used and never knew of these things until i logged on to this site plus i was too cheap to splerge for the extended warranty since i work at a body shop and do most of my own mechanics. My mods so far are Thrasher CAI with throttle body spacer and heat shield, taylor wires and msd coils and cleared headlamps. mods comming soon are 3.4" pulley with gatorback belt and oversized tensioner, ngk tr55 plugs, 180* thermostat, and intense standard pcm . Do you think im heading in the right direction or will i run into problems with these mods?

-Brian

here are a few pics, the third being my buddies from work 3800 related so i said why not









sorry for the picture quality

Hey welcome. Looks like you are heading in the proper direction with your mods. Just make sure you get scanned for KR.

I love your car, and I love that GP too.

Welcome to the forum, and good luck with the Taylor wires!

(seriously....ditch them for something cheaper and more dependable).

Glad to have you here with us.

Yes, opening up the exhaust in any way will help kill KR.
