Default What else should I do

Im very patiently waiting the arrival of my 2.5" pulley. Just wondering if there is any other mods/upgrades I should consider with the pulley? I'v read to maybe switch to colder plugs and a second tranny cooler. Anything else?
Would a tranny cooler from another bonneville work? Would the cold weather be enough to cool it?

I would say maybe consider some headers, and or rockers. The kit that zzp sells for their 1.9 rockers is pretty cheap and goes along well with a smaller pulley.

You are right Baron. Hmmm, I wonder if rockers are available for the Series 1. I guess that is something that willwren would know.

How about an intercooler or cryogenic'*? Larger TB and better flowing heads?
Did you upgrade to a LSD with the new tranny? or how about a shift kit?
