We have a 2000 GT Convertibe. We had some mods made last fall. Before mods were done, I put a BBK CAI on it. It sounded great! The CAI was easy to do. I don't consider myself a mechanic. I wish I knew more. After the mods, the sound changed drastically - WOW!!! The exhaust still needs to be changed out, the stock Cats, H-pipe and Cat-backs are still on. Hopefully this spring-summer we'll get those changed as well. I'm planning High-flow Cats, X-pipe and Cat-backs - All MagnaFlow.
The mods started with new head gaskets. (The passenger side head gasket was oozing.) In the process of removing parts to get to the head gaskets, it was noticed that the timing chain tensioners had a problem. One was broken and the other was almost broken. The timing chain tensioners
were replaced. The exhaust manifolds were replaced with BBK shorty headers
. The under drive pulley's
were changed out except for the water pump pulley. The water pump pulley needed to support the new intake manifold. A Trickflow Track Heat intake manifold
was installed. (The replaced intake manifold was only a few months old. Now it sits in the garage. The original intake manifold ruptured-blew and was replaced under warranty.) Other mods made at that time include a SPEC stage 2 clutch, FRPP 3.73 gears and rear end overhaul kit and SCT XCAL2 tuner with agressive 91 octane tune
(Premium in Utah).
When I drove the car home - it just didn't feel like the same car I'd grown to love. This was a monster! We hit commuter traffic on the way home. My wife and son said the car was much louder. I think it sounds great! Not to loud
If you'd like to hear "my-lil-pony" email me and we can arrange a time when we can meet.
When I learn more about this forum I'll put the mods in a better listing view and include pics.
