Default Suggestions for next step?

Hey everyone, right now I have: Thrasher CAI, 3.4'' MPS, 3" Hogan Downpipe, 180 Tstat, Autolite SP, Gatorback Supercharger Belt, and throttle body spacer.

I know before I take the next step, I have to reprogram my PCM.

the Throttle Body spacer is no performance advantage to you

what is your budget and what are you looking for in terms of performance

there are more Bonnevilles running SLP'* than TOGS......now that is not saying that the TOGS are not a good header, more people just have the SLP'*

the SLP'* are also available at Intense, where us Bonneville guys tend to purchase the products from them beacuse of there customer service and the Support in the Bonneville community

I'll also say Cam & headers. Start saving for a trans
I was going to do a cam & headers this spring but it looks like my trans is coming first
The SLP headers are more popualr for the above stated reason but I've heard better things about the TOGS when it comes to install and quality.

2-3 huh?

Heads are big money, however...big power requires big money.

The top few items would be (not necessarily in any order..merely power adders)
Gen V or MP112 superchargers
Cam
Heads
Rockers (although..not needed with a cam until you go further)
Headers would be a must
Tuner
Intercooler
Throttle body

And there'* tons of others that I've missed.

Personally..I'd read up, learn a ton here and on GP/Regal sites keeping in mind the B'ville reacts differently to the same mods due to weight and programming. Then choose your mods carefully.
