Default just got a 02 SSEI, where to start getting parts?

hi all, new to the forum here,
im not gonna go crazy with mods, this is my daily driver, i got my camaor ss when i wanna haul ***. but i do want a little more kick out of it.

where do i get a new smaller pully for the supercharger? and what size should i get? also if i just do a filter and a pully do i have to change anything in the computer?

also ill prolly gut the airbox or get a k&n on filter or something.

thanks guys.

you can get a Pulley From Intense-Racing.com. I would recommend the 3.5"

you can gut the airbox, or get an FWI from Intense as well

I suggest not going smaller then 3.5" unless you plan to do a lot more modding. No, you wont need to make any changes to your PCM with just a pulley and filter.

Unless you know someone with a puller, you will need to get a puller. I have a puller but unless your in south eastern wisconsin it'* not going to do you much good. If you try a jaw puller you will destroy the pulley.

Now, that being said you have 2 choices. A press on pulley will be the cheapest choice. But if you want to change size you will have to pull it and then press a new on in place. Going with a MPS is the best choice, but costs more. Put you can change pulley size in a few minutes.

A round about figure you can get about 15 HP with a 3.5 To go any smaller then that you will need to be able to scan for KR and be willing to do a lot of other mods.

i wantz details on the "camaor ss" is that a new model?
all joking aside what have you done to her?

also you can just buy the intense premade performance kits which they offer in stages. personally i'd start with stage 2 or stage 3 as stage 1 is really not that much and not going to give you probably what you want...stage 3 just really throws on headers btw.
