Default who'* tried this?

I have just purchased a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville SSEI. I am about to make the following performance mods to start with more to follow. Any suggestions or experiences with these mods would be helpful.

First is a MAP Engineering Intercooler system to help get the best and safest gains from a 3.0 pulley.

Then a set of "Other guys" headers, to a map engineering high flow catalytic converter that eliminates the u-bend, then to dual Aero-turbine mufflers.

Reprogram the computer eliminating the speed limiter and optimizing the mods performance

A ZEX 75hp wetshot nitrous system

Could someone suggest a trans oil cooler to help it handle the power?

There are more mods planned for the future, this is just first wave of the performance mods, also big plans for A/V, interior, and styling. Thanks for your help.

You may want to go with SLP headers since I don't think TOG is in business anymore..
And unlike the w-body cars our h-body cars don't have a u-bend.

Their are alot of Bonne'* out their with even more extreme mods them that. All I have to say is do your research before you buy something then later find out that it'* junk. Your best bet is to talk with ZZPerformance or INTENSE Racing about what your goals are and they will set you up.

You might want to research running N20 with an intercooler. I have heard conflicting stories on the pros and cons. But you would have a helluva low IAT

Click my mod list. An intercooler is probably one of the last things I would do to be honest.

Or you could skip the intercooler and use the nitrous for intercooling during races. I don't know much about anything though.
