TUNE UP(VERY IMPORTANT) $xxx
slp headers $700
innercooler $500-1000
gen 5 m90 $500(i think)
colder plugs cloder tstat
aftermarket pcm
this should put you into high-mid 13'*
maybee a stage 1x or xp cam? $300+springs and pushrods and retainers $300
mid to low 13'* after cam maybe 12'*?

transmission will come somtime it happens to all of the high powered bonnevilles $3000

If you want to spend that much tho go turbo be the first bonneville to do it!!

Actually..the transmission should be done right away for that type of numbers. Why mess around?

To accomplish this stuff..I'd drive the car to Intense or ZZP...hand them a CC and say "Do it!" Then you'll roll back out a day or so later with a much faster car that has a solid transmission.

That'* if money isn't an issue.

I would do the tune up first
then the headers,tstat,plugs,PCM.
gen 5 m90 could come at the same time as the innercooler
I think he should just wait till it breaks silver bullet is still on a stock transmission I believe
(also he has the 4t60 would that cause problems for the pcm/getting it built?)
