there are no headers available for your car....


there are very little mods available for the Series One unless you want to tear in to the engine....

check techinfo up above for a list of first mods that should be done

Like he says, there are not a lot of options for you except hardcore engine stuff from what i have seen.

Sorry :(

You won't find a set of headers for the 3800 TPI ...

But keep in mind that the Exahust Manifolds you have bone stock are some of the best around... In the past I have called them Factory headers( not true to the word as they are Tubular Manifolds )... These Tubular Manifolds were called Low restriction exahust manifolds... If you look closely at them you will see they are pretty large for their application and are more then enough.... One of our members actually took a set of the Tubular manifolds and had them welded on the outside and then smoothed out the inside for a 10-15% improvement... Thats the one bad thing about them is that the welds are actually on the inside of the tube.. Why they did that we will never know... But for what they are they more than serve the purpose...

I wish that they would have used simmilar manifolds for the series II engines...

Being that you have a 92 another thing that you may want to consider would be a 180F thermostat... The 92'* did not have an EGR Valve and were proned to burnt valves or cracked exahust manifolds.. We have not seen a lot of the 92'* do this, but it is not unheard of either... I have seen a couple locally that had burnt Valves, this would include a couple diffrent 3300V6'* as well as they to were EGR'less..

Possibly a Magnaflow High flow cat may do you some good as well if you are still on the original cat...

Look on you RPO sticker on the spart tire cover... Do you have codes N10, FW2?

FW2 would be a 3.06 Gear ratio( more performance oriented ) and N10 would be the Single side Double Outlet Muffler....

Something overlooked here is that soy may have the Magnavox ignition setup. So in order to use MSD coils (very little performance gain) he'd need to upgrade to a Delco-style ICM.
