once you get your exhaust done and a cold air intake, i would do a 180* thermostat and then have intense reprogram your pcm. the pcm will definately give your car a kick in the pants.

If you swap out the PCM from intense you don't need to go to a tuning shop. You will have to get a CASE learn done, unless you have a 97. If there'* a club member near by with tuning software you could get a tune that way as well.

Here is what you will need.

INTENSE-Racing.com: INTENSE™ Reprogrammed 3800 Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

Go with the a la carte. There will be a $50 deposit. When it arrives you will pull your PCM and then remove the knock module cover and pull your module and put that in the new PCM. Then plug the new PCM in your car and that'* about it. Send back your old PCM and get your deposit back.

Going 180 will help performance a bit, not hurt it. It may hurt the millage a bit, but your foot will have far more effect on that then a 15* difference.
