Default Need Advice/ Part Numbers

Alright,
So I just ordered the PCM, Intake and Pulley modular system from INTENSE a few seconds ago. I think I might have messed up and put 160* thermostat in. My car is all stock except for what is going to be going on. Anyone else ran 160* with the mods? What about plugs? I had the timing advanced for 92-93 octane too..Shouldn't I get colder plugs? If so, I need to know the part number for the 160* and some recommendations on spark plugs..

Thanks!

With entry level mods you need a 180* stat.
Email Todd at Intense and ask for the 180* stat instead of the 160*.
104 autolites gapped to 0.052 is the plugs to use.
What size of pulley did you get?

Your next mods should include exhaust (headers) then high ratio rockers or cam.

The 160 will be too cold on a stock PCM. You need no colder than a 180, and I suggest you drill at least one small bypass hole in the rim.

We can't tell you what plugs to buy until you tell us what pulley diameter. Hope you went with a 3.5" on a stock car unless:

1. You have a scantool or Aeroforce scan gauge to check for KR.

2. You're willing to spend more to either get a different pulley or combat the resulting KR in some other way.


Have you also considered the belt length? What year is your (assumed) SSEi? Can you edit your profile and add that to your signature? It'll help us help you in the future. Did you consider the removal/installation tool? You cannot use a traditional pulley puller.

Pulley swaps aren't just plug/play. There are always other variables to consider.

The local Pontiac dealership said they will do it.. Are they going to have the necessary puller/install kit for it?

I'll confirm that. The dealer will not have it. You need a specific puller AND installer. This is a non-OEM thing you're adding.

You'll need to buy, rent, or borrow the puller and installer.

Well Intense didn't respond to repeated phone calls and emails. I just got a confirmation on shipment.....guess I will just have to tell my family not to sign for the box when it arrives and have it returned...what a headache

PM Rogue here. Don't just let that package rot.

It'* best to ask questions here before ordering. The stat isn't going to break the bank, and you can still use the modular system. Just pick up another pulley for it. INTENSE will work with you.
