PostSubject: Help me   Help me EmptyMon Nov 19, 2007 10:20 pm

Hey I have a 95 s/c and was going to get my car up to speed and wanted to know what kind of upgrades I can do to it to get more quickness. I have already given it an upgrade with Air and Oil Filters plugs and wires and PCV. I just need the fuel filter put on there now. Will that make much of a difference?... And are the flowmasters the right way to go to make it sound good?

Thanks...
PM me if you want.

The Series I engine has fewer aftermarket performance options than the Series II, but www.seriesoneperformance.com has several upgrades to offer.

Dude, don't do LOUD. You can have mods without sounding like a POS without a muffler. That's not what a Riviera is about. But hey, that's just my opinion.

hey the flowmasters are the way to go thats what i did. i also took off the resonator which i also reccomend. but for making your car a little faster a CAI works really well with a smaller 2.5 s/c pulley

for making it fast, I would recommend a cold air intake (fenderwell) pretty much number 1. It's cheap (if you build it yourself), effective, and increases the effectiveness of all other mods.
If you have not done so yet and especially if you have some miles on it, a seafoam engine cleaning would be very good and cheap to do.
Those should get you off to a strong start

Oops, sorry I got sidetracked with the muffle issue. Codith is 100% right. Do a FWI, seafoam, use the right plugs, new wires, 180 deg stat and THEN you can go with a smaller pulley.
