I cant find any place at all thats selling parts for a 92 SSEI i went to autozone.com and for cat-back systems it doesnt have anything for it and i cant find any CAI for them. Are there like ones that arent specific for it but work on them or what? And also which would be better the jet stage 2 chip with the t-stat or the hypertech and t-stat? And can you guide me to what kind of wires and plugs i should get?

There will be no place you can walk into and get performance parts listed for a 92 SSEi. You have to do research and figure out what will work and request those things, or order them on the internet.

For the CAI, you'll have to make something, as many here have.
For the cat back, you'll have to get the parts seperately, as many here have.
For the plugs, try NGK Iridium TR55IX from zzperformance.com if you get a smaller SC pulley, stock pulley, anything but Bosch.
The Jet chip will not work in a Supercharged 92. Get the Hypertech Thermomaster chip from jcwhitney.com, it'* cheapest there. And get the 160 thermo from hypertech-inc.com.
For wires, I like my MSD 8.5mm from pfyc.com, but they do give me whine through my aftermarket stereo. I'm considering a different brand for my next set.

You should do some basic maintenance first. Tuneup items should include plugs/wires, pcv valve, fuel filter, and air filter. Change your oil, and check the trans fluid for brown color or smells. If you see that, have it flushed.

After that, start with the 180 thermostat, and consider a bigger trans cooler. Go on to the intake and exhaust. Your stock exhaust is 2.5" mandrel bent stainless. Don't lose the piping, just change the cat and muffler.

Figure in the chip when you can. Many have been let down by Superchips. Try to stay away from them. Hypertech should be a good choice, but I don't know anything about their Series 1 chips.

Alot of your mods may be dictated by the miles since your last rebuild on the trans, and it'* current condition. Take that into consideration. You'll also find a wealth of information in Techinfo. A full days reading.

there are alot that you can do with a 92 SSEi. it just takes time a trial and error to find what works and what doesnt. the biggest thing is not to get KR with your mods.
i still think the fastest i have seem was scotts car, i think he is running like 11.60 with it and in the 10,* with his GTP. and dont forget the guys at ZZP. zooomer is running 10'* and ken from ZZP is there too. running a CSC pushing about 24-26 psi.
