    Last year High Performance Pontiac did a couple articles all about bolt ons for third gen birds. First off, start with the basics, intake and exhaust. Get a catback setup, I think Edelbrock has one for your car off the top of my head, but most of the big names in exhuast probably do as well. Then get a cold air intake for it, do headers, find out what gears your car has, if it's worth installing a higher ratio, and then throw a 100 shot of juice on there and hit the track.

    If I remember correctly the article said how well the 3rd gens took to basic intake/exhaust mods because of the restrictive factory setup, so you'll probably see pretty good gains with just the basics.

    Not a HP increse just a suggestion. the more power, the more you have to upgrade your rear end and tranny so look into doing those if your going to be putting alot of ponies to the pavement.

    sfc's won't 'help' HP, but it will keep the t-tops from leaking and will help your suspension. check the sponsor's threads for discounts.

    Heres my baby i named her tiffany. She still needs work, the person i bought it from was not very good with cars and well, i have to fix it up. The bra is going as soon as i have enough money to buy a new fender which was pretty much destroyed when i bought the car.

    Dude! not to knock your car, but your hood bird aint flying straight either. it happens, dont sweat it though. I had a 87 firebird and the last a$$ that owned it put freaking ghetto flames over a midnight blue metallic paint job! I wanted to kick him. nobody will notice unless they are looking for it. as far as power "adders", are you going to need your rear seats? you could delete them. just an idea.

    Yes I need my rear seats, and yea some people do dumb things to cars, that they think are cool. The kid i bought this from acctually spray painted inside the car, the engine, anythin that he could he did. I felt bad for the car, but im fixing it as much as i can when i can. He also thought he was a mechanic and well hes clearly not after the wiring job he tried doin.
