You really can't do too much better than a $169 Intense PCM. They raise your WOT shift points to 6000 rpms and pull in more timing. I hate to sound like I'm plugging a product, but I feel I need to when I see the amount of time and money people are wasting on stupid stuff.

Oh man, you guys are to much....doesnt the Bonneville have some kinda DIC that yells at you if you leave your parking brake on and hammer the gas?

Mine has a hand that comes out of the dashboard and punches me in the face if I do stuff like that

As for best bang for the buck? Start with Stage One mods, there is no such thing as "Best Bang for the Buck", its a long expensive process.

I've seen posts on here about the Intense PCM and plan on getting one after I do my exhaust mods. Is it easy to install?

Incredibly easy with basic tools and 15-20 minutes of your time. And it really makes your car feel like a different machine. It'* a great mod.

Best bang for the buck? Well no one thing will do it, one will necessitate another. The PCM will really wake the car up. But if you feel really adventurous, get a cam.

I have read the bigger TB can wake up throttle response pretty good.
