Default 1997 SSEi Performance Build up Time Update 2/5/07new mod!!

Yes Folks, the time has come.
This car is going to get alot faster, I am bound and Determined, if I am going to drive a Series II, I might as well take advantage of the modability aspect.

Here is what I am thinking of thus far
Intense MPS...including a 3.4.3.3.3.2
Intense PCM
1.9 rockers arent listed on Intense any more...looks like 1.8s?
Oil restricted Push rods
Springs? I dont plan on a cam any time soon, will my stock springs be okay? I am at 85,000 EASY miles
ZZP Power log manifolds, they haven't been tried yet to my knowledge on a Bonneville, I think for the price, it might be a wise choice..Headers just are not in my budget this time around, as much as Id like them to be
Intese Shift kit....I need pics of this install though if anyone has done it, it looks easy, im sure it is...
I will be playing around the the SC case a bit..
Port matching my LIM
my exhaust from the cat back is stock, however, im sure, it should flow fine
TB...? What should I do with that...I have seen alot of different posts on this one..i need some solid input.
Aeroforce scan gage is a must
Adjustable FPR ( like the one i sold to you Boosty )
Fuel pump wire kit (pump is an OEM one with about 10,000 miles on it)
My injectors will be sent to Oregon
Any other things (cost in mind) that would help my car perform a bit better, or compliment this mod List?
Thank you
-Series 2 N3WB

EDIT
I know i have these PEMs that were Graciously gave to me from Marty, However, I think someone with a less heavy mod list would REALLY benifit from these, they are done REALLY well, and look awesome.
Once I make my order, once I decide, these will be up for grabs, but lets WAIT on this.
Thanks

We offer the Yella Terra Rocker arms in 1.9 ratio and you will want to put at least 90# springs on them or 105# if you even think about doing a cam in the future (do it once instead of twice )

Okay, it cant be that hard to change springs with the heads on the car..is it?
I see the Yella Terras now..
would the 1.8s be overkill for me at the moment?
Good Advice Travis

not hard, you just need the spring compressor tool and a chuck for air line to go into the spark plug hole to hold the valves.

I'm assuming you'll upgrade your pre TB intake to something a bit more formal.
Intense thermostat made a great difference in flow for me.
