Default Mods for 1990 SSE

I am interested in doing some minor mods on my car. So far, I would like a cold air intake and a computer chip that I found on drivewire.com, it states that you get a 17 hp increase along with 27ft lbs of tourqe. Also I wanted to install some duals. Do these sound like good minor upgrades?

Here'* a vid/sound clip of a "slightly overmodified" 90 SSE

It got the whole performance package installed.

Search on Frankenbonne to get a better understanding of what happened to it.

This chip?

Quote:
Superchips Computer Chip
Pontiac Bonneville SSE Computer Chip

Fits: 1990 to 1991 Pontiac Bonneville SSE
Brand: Superchips
Notes: Computer Chip; Includes EPROM; Requires 4 Letter Chip Code To Program; ECU Behind Glove Box; Example Computer Code - Usually 3-4 Letters Starting With A; HP Increase +17 hp; Torque Increase +27ft/lb
There'* no way that chip will give you those gains without a bunch of other supporting mods. Intake, exhaust, maybe even more. It'll re-tune you to take advantage of other mods, but by itself isn't much for the $150 they're asking.

Try www.sinisterperformance.com for a custom burn instead for far cheaper.
