Have you done a tune-up yet? Check to see if plugs(check intense for colder plugs), wires, PCV, and fuel filter look factory or like someone just got em done. Replace as needed, then I would do t-stat(drilled), PCM, pully in that order unless you got enough $ for all three. Youll be cranking out some throttle then with that stuff. Or maybe someone thinks headers and high flow cat should come first? No reason in pumping air in faster than it can get out.

what headers do you use on your cars since intense doesn't sell them for the bonneville.

yeah it makes a big difference. But im uncertain of what to do next PCM and T-stat or smaller pulley?
Install a 180 stat and a 3.4" pulley. That will give a huge gain and then follow with the PCM.

Their headers fit our cars with only small modications.

Only if you have the ability to scan for KR. Otherwise, a 3.5 pulley.

imo, the T-stat is so simple and cheap theres no reason to make it its own job. Pick one of the other mods and do the t-stat at the same time.

and that may be even too small of a pulley....

Get that Aeroforce FIRST, and SCAN SCAN SCAN........ you WILL and are getting KR with the stock pulley....fix the KR with the stock pulley before going down further....take this from experience, dont ask me how i know
