Default Simple, cheap performance mods for a Series I...

Since at this time I'm looking for a car with a SC Series I & II or a NA Series I ONLY, and since I'm likely to end up getting a NA Series I, what cheap, easy-to-do performance options are there available for a NA Series I? For instance, I'm going to go look at a 93 Park Avenue NA tomorrow. What could I do to that thing performance-wise, easily and cheaply? Or at least cheaply, hehe. Thanks

Thanks What are the disadvantages, if any, of this modification? Noise, etc.? What are the performance gains from something like this? Thanks again all

BonneMeMn said he felt like a 20 HP gain, and the car was a good bit louder.

oooook here we go......

first mods are to get the car running right (full tune up)

then you can move on the the intake ( makes the car breather better, there is no way that the intake had gained 20 alone, this is combined with other mods)

next would be you could put a high flow car

whatelse......you can do and F-body muffler

a combination of these mods should make a noticible difference in sound of the car and performance
