greetings all! I'm Jordan, 25. I drive a 95 riv s/c sandalwood gold with 188k! Car still in perfect shape mechanically, inside and out. Not even the infamous s/c front bearing whine which im told are notorious on this paticular engine after 100k on the clock. I'm sold! You just cant understand why people love these cars..... until you drive one. Looking for some performance upgrades. Other than the usual high flow air filter, high output coils and such, I cant really find any serious muscle makers(s/c overdrive pulley, power chip for pcm, more aggresive cam, higher flow injectors, etc.). Any helpful comments would be appreciated. Thanx for reading, now get out of the chair and drive!

Thanks for your comments guys, looks like I'm going to have to be a little creative with bolt-ons and other mods bonk , however I think given a little time the old riv might suprise all of you in the future. Pics to come shortly. Thanks for the advice and the warm welcome. Who knows?, maybe 12's aren't out of the question?! thumbsup
