Default Performance Mods

Hi guys I've got a 1993 Bonneville SSEi and I was wondering what kind of mods I could get for the engine or computer? I want to increase the horsepower, it'* an automatic. I heard there was a chip you could get for the computer that would add 35BHP onto the stock specs? Anyone know if this is true and where I could get some good engine mods?

This place here can help with the tuning. Sinister Performance, LLC. Not sure what engine mods are available for a series1. You can make a cold air intake, might be able to drop a pulley size on the supercharger, others will be able to answer that much better.

the series 1 is very very limited. if anything, a chip from sinister, a slightly smaller */c pulley, rockers, and an exhaust and cold air intake.

I ordered a new exhaust system, I think it'* called "Cross flow"? All chrome its gonna look pretty good. Also I found a site that sells dash covers so I got a carbon fiber plate that will replace all the plastic. Looks quite sharp!

Please take pictures of both installations and post em up. We are always interested in seeing how members mod their cars, and your experience may help another member looking to do the same things.

If the chip your talking about is a new PCM you won't get 35 HP just from doing that, you will need to reprogram it if you start modding

Yes I realize that. By asking for pictures in advance of your installation we have a better chance of getting them than if I asked after you were done.
