I wanted to show and share what my plans are for the car. I'd rather just make one thread and keep updating it, then to have multiple threads. My plans consist of:
-Ported and Polished GenIII M90
-Ported LIM
-Ported and Polished Throttle Body
-3.4" MPS (lower after other mods have been done)
-Intercooler (not sure what brand yet)
-GMPP Exhaust
-PRJ Spark Plug Wires

Currently I have the m90 ported on the inlet and outlet. The H-Bar was removed and the rotors have been re-coated. The snout has been rebuilt and it will be using a green coupler. I plan on sending it out by next month to get fully polished. Here are some pics of the m90.






I bought these last week. I think they will go well with my car. I got them for $31shipped before he raised the prices.


The throttle body is currently being ported and polished by Reptile from grandprixforums.net. The LIM is being machined to match the intercooler by another member of the gpf.net. I am not sure if I should send out to Intense to get the MPS hub installed now or after the polish has been done.

Suggestions and Comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

*Update* I bought some ZZP fuel rails for $200. I have no idea how to route them right. Maybe someone can help. Here's a pic.


*Update May 22*
Machined LIM and pics of emblems installed

Those rotors look pretty good, any idea how much it was for just the coating? Is it similair to oem or something different?

Thanks guys.

The coating was about $50. Was told it was better than OEM. OEM always tends to flake. The guy uses some type of epoxy paint and bakes it.

What can I use to install these? And where can i buy the
stuff? The emblems have two pins on the back. I am going to dril two holes for them. They came with locks to hold them in place. But I want to be safe and have them held on better with something extra.

I would not want to drill any holes in my SS, so I would cut those nubs off with a Dremel and cut off wheel, then get some good quality 3M double sided body molding tape to stick them on. They will be no less likely to come off then the factory emblems on the rear c pillars. I'm just saying that's what I would do, but I am very picky about not altering my car in a non reversible fashion.
Also if those emblems come with the circular one way clips, once they are on those nubs they will not come off unless you break the clips off.

any autoparts store should have it, usually named emblem and trim tape, or trim and molding tape, or something like that.

Gotta love the internet
