I've had this car for about five years and really did nothing with it because i was so busy with work. Since the layoff on Feb., I found myself with a lot more free time.
Since I went to Tims mod day, I caught the mod bug big time. With limited funds and very limited knowledge on fixing cars, I started with mini mods that I could do on my own. Here is what I got so far.
K&N CAI- I bought the generic Summit one but the K&N came instead. $70 bucks saved!
Home and first plate delete- I had to call Tim for a little guidance
Throttle Body Cover- Ebay piece. Used the search button on ISSF for the install info.
LT1 Throttle Body Plate- The gasket was still good!
A New Chrome Grille
SS Wheels- My buddy just put 24s on his DGGM. He gave them to me but need tires. "If its free, its for me"
I have a bowtie trunklid emblem coming, along with chrome rocker mouldings( mine are dented), and a spare pcm so i can send mine out.
All I wanted to say is thanks for getting me interested in my car again. Save the "lower it!" comments. I'm out of $.
Heres some pics

Your next mod is: Throttle Body Bypass! Should take you no more than 15 min. Do a search on ISSF. Car looks real clean. Tom
