Default 1993 Buick Ultra

Hey i have a 1993 Buick Ultra with the */C 3.8 and im pretty shur its exactly the same engine as the SSEi from that year and obviously there isn't to much performance info for a Park Ave ULTRA anyway what are the cheapest and easiest ways to make this thing faster if any? I love the sleeper value of this car and that why i still have it now i want it to be that much faster!

first get a tune up so your mods will have an effect, then 180* t-stat, intake, exhaust, pcm, a pulley maybe.

this should help out also

Ummm....BIG secret here. Anything available for the Series 2 has been available for the Series 1 for even longer. Including cams and rockers.

Not sure about the PCM on the Ultra if it has a pre-made chip, or if you have to get one made. I'd start with the basics and move up from there. When it gets time for a PCM, there is always custom ones.

The 93 Park Avenue Ultra has the same exact PCM, should have the Same Mem-Cal, and same trans as the Bonneville, no diffrent... But its a tad larger being a C body as opposed to an H-Body.... But the Drivetrain is the same

There is a Burgundy over silver Ultra on my way to work, man O man is that thing Mint.... Wish they would put a for sale sign on it...

I would recomend for some cheap performance to get some 2' tubing and cut a hole or 2 in to your air box and run the tubing form the in take to the front of the car to beable to pull more air in and colder air

Just like the small pic to the far left in my Signature. It works well, but not as well as a full-blown custom like the far right in my signature.
