Some pictures of my car...

I have not been here in well over a month but I felt like sharing some pictures with you all...

I just realized I've been here for nearly two years. I still feel like a newbie.

Anyway, pictures...











Before anyone says anything, I have a K&N on order...

It has been a long time, I have videos too...

Acceleration with all my current modifications down a private country road.

Couple of exhaust videos:

Couldn't resist doing a little bit of echoing while I was in the parking deck:

That's about it I think...

Have a nice day!

Pull a supercharger off of a GTP, SSEi, or Park Avenue Ultra. Then do an ECU tune and smaller SC pulley.

That thing will be one hell of a sleeper. I know my moms Bonneville was.
Love the sound of that thing by the way. Big fan of the GM 3800 motor.

Thank you all for the compliments!

One thing I had planned I actually got done today, it never quite sat right with me having a single exhaust outlet, so I got a dual outlet performance muffler.



Video (I have a better one uploading and will post it soon): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiTQuRfet5o

I also plan on buying an Intense PCM and an underdrive pulley at some point. In the more distant future as suggested, I hope to swap out for the 3.8 supercharged and get a 3.4" pulley for it as that seems to be a popular choice with these cars.

The handicapped plate is for my dad, he had a stroke a couple of years back and I take him to doctor's appointments now and then.

Thank you all for the kind words! I hope to keep the sleeper image going with this car.

I hate the GM 3800 motor the only thing good about it is its really easy to do an oil change on. I just never ever like the way they sounded especially with flowmasters, there is so much drone. But with a S/C that things would be fun as hell think about allt he people you could surprise

It's max speed is limited to an asthmatic 107 mph, getting an aftermarket PCM will help that.

Ungoverned Bonnevilles with the same engine and transmission can do 130 mph stock, so who knows...

To each his own I guess. Aside from the upper intake I love the 3800 engine. Sound, ease of work, reliability, everything.

Well I didn't feel like creating a new thread for some updates...

So in addition to the intake, exhaust, and other performance stuff I've been doing little things to enhance my enjoyment of the car. I'm not sure what all I've told you about but here's something I just added yesterday so I can BS with my fellow car buddies:

CB Radio:




Working on routing those wires a little better.



I also have a new car:

1996 Chevrolet S10 LS Extended Cab.






Very low miles as you can see.

It has the 4.3L V6. It's also quite nice and un-trucklike to drive.
