Default Performance Mod Opinions

Okie dokie...well I had a HUGE stereo system in my car and Im selling it cuz my Bonnevilles gay and a few shops are telling me I cant do this and that whatever fine...lol im selling it...sooo here'* what I want I just want recommendations



PCM

Smaller Pulley

CAI / FWI

Exhaust...( Recomended pipe size, Mufflers?? )



for the exhuast I really dont want something TOOOOO loud...I had FlowMaster 40s on my Monte Carlo and I dont want anything that loud anymore...just something Mild till you open her up a bit...im leaning toward the performance side rather than the noise


but basically for all this stuff im looking for any websites where I can purchase this stuff and / or recommended names...I seen INTENSE has all that stuff...but Im just asking sum of the pros

Your car isn't gay..lol

You merely haven't researched here in the audio area to fully understand what you need to make things work in your car.

I say do the stereo and the performance mods.

just wait til the mod bug bites you. Then you'll look at the bank account and wonder where it went.

You're not too far from them -you should head over to Plain City, OH and talk to these boys -don't forget to check out BADSSEi and 8-Ball.

These guys have all the tricks you're needing (and then some) for performance wise.

All you need to do is go south on 77, then wait until you hit the very south of Canton. Great roads around there, and it was kind of an impulsive thing, so I don't remember what roads I took, haha.

It would be a good start. You don't need an exhaust for a long time unless you want to change the sound in which case I would look at swapping out mufflers for something more to your liking.

INTENSE is perhaps the BEST company to deal with when it comes to Bonnevilles. Most other places really only deal with what will WORK in a Bonneville, but designed for use in a Grand Prix type situation.

I'll most likely be heading down there sometime next month or so, to get a cam installed in my car.....I recommend that too Sure check out BadSSEi while you're there, problem is, last time I saw it in July, it was in a bazillion pieces.....Still pretty cool though
