I have a series I Riviera with a CAI and 95,000 miles. I'd like to mod it some more and was hoping to get some help with what to do to it. A series II swap is out of the question. I have $500 to put into it. Any help is appreciated!

I think most of the guys didn't have to do any cutting. I did on mine because I didn't want to have to go through the fender well everytime I needed to clean the filter. But even though I cut mine, the factory box will cover any enlargment to the opening I made if i decide to put it back stock.

I have a CAI as it is. Could you explain a custom cat back? Also what about a KR scanner, do they have PCMs? thanks.

If I had only $500 to spend on a series I, I'd do a CAI/FWI, scanner, mini AFC, AL104s, 180 t-stat, & 2.6" SC pulley... Make 15-20 HP and call it a day!

custom catback would probably be eliminating the resonator put in a 3" pipe into a Y pipe with 2.5" exits to two hi flo mufflers... just an exhuast system...my guess is it would cost about 250 at most muffler shops.

you could go find a CAI that fits on another car but has the same bends that you would need. i think mine fits a acura or honda, cant really remember, bought it new and cheap off ebay.

FWI = fender well intake... the pipe routes into a conical filter in the fender well.... theres a bulletin with all the abbreviations somewhere... mps is modular pulley systed , dp is downpipe , pcm is powertrain control module.... those are some of the common ones.

Also I need some ideas for what to do with my series I. I don't realy want to swap it for a series II. I never had a blown engine before. Is it safe to run it on nitrous? If so how big of a shot is too big for these 6 cyl.?

I have heard a guy run a 100 wet shot. I would make sure your fuel system is up to spec first.

fraid the series one is a bit scarce in the mod dept. Headers won't work from a series 2, because on the series 2 the exaust ports are evenly spaced. The series one has un-evenly spaced ports, so if you wanted headers on the series one, you really would have to get them custom done. For mods, start with the basics(tune-up etc), then move to cooler Tstat, and scan for engine knock. If you are knock free you can drop a pulley size. also you can consiter doing a port and polish on your lower intake manifold.

http://www.pontiacbonnevilleclub.com/forum/ has a bunch of good info on series 1 modding
