Default New to bonnevilles...how to make them faster?

I just got a 98 SE a couple months ago, and i was just wondering how to make the car faster. Currently the 0-60 time is around 10... and would like to get it faster.

I dont have a lot of money, so if somebody could tell me some cheap mods to help make my car faster it would be greatly appriciated...

Stop over at www.intense-racing.com, and check out their line of PCM'*.

They have a pretty good selection of stuff over there.

Alright ive learned a lot today from reading about all these things, but i still really have no idea how i would make a custom intake...

I also looked at those PCM'*...how exactly do those work, like what are they and what exactly would they do. (In simple terms)

I really want to make this car faster...so i hope you guys will stick with me through all my newness.

Powertrain Control Module, It'* the cars' brain. It controls how much gas the engine gets, when the spark plugs fire and alot more.
