Hi all!

I recently inherited my father's '98 SC/ 93k... Pearl white with gray.. all options (was there any other way?)

Spent the last year "rehabbing" the old girl. Have 3300 miles on her since getting all systems functional.

Am I better off "rodding" her or waiting for the market to catch up with her?

"manic" .wink

She already has Ceramic front brakes and cross-drilled, slotted rotors, Bridgestone Potenzas, and a few "Tweaks" I was able to do with the company Tech II.

Yes.. 25+ year ASE pro with 53 years turning wrenches here..

If you read back through Engine posts you'll find data for replacing the SC pulley and what not then re-doing the fuel maps, which I understand you can do with the Tech II.

Rodding or market? It's your car & your call. With 93K on it... there are lower mileage ones out there... I really don't know what I would do.

Welcome hi

There isn't much you can change with a Tech II. You could slap a 3.6" pulley, some colder plugs, and maybe a downpipe to get started. That'll wake her up a little bit, and the PCM can adjust itself just fine for those mods. Anything smaller and you start crossing into re-write land.

Welcome! Sounds like you got good years of experience. It would be interesting to know your mods for that car. Have fun
