ram air wont help you performance much wise... and nos costs money at every fill. How about something like headers? it will make it sounds and perform much better!

okay.. you said rez removed and u bend, do you mean u bend still htere or removd... they way you talk you sound like you know it needs to be removed.

about all you can do now is go headers or go internal on that engine. myabe something suspension wise?

go on www.zzperformance.comand look around in hte grand prix section. right now i'm thinking about some strut tower braces and sway bars for my own monte.

you could also look into high performance tires.


the options are endless now that you've got the fundamentals done.

I wasn't recommending the hood for performance, it just looks badass

Hi `Mike,
If your Monte Carlo SS is in top shape & doesn't need tires/brakes/
tune up etc. I would use the Money for fuel/gas,
and take a road trip & enjoy driving your Monte Carlo.
$4 a gallon = 200 gallon's of fuel.
That would be a SuperRoadTrip : )
But, `if it's extra money just earmarked for Mod's,
then I would make sure everything on your Monte is in
good working order, (if not invest your $'s into fixing any problem).
I think it's great `if you can have a emergency fund
for `stuff that just happens to our cars : )
Wish you would post some pic's of your Monte,
and more details on everything that you have done to it.
How many miles are on your Monte ?
Have you changed all the fluids/filters etc.
Let us know what you decide & do `ok.
Good Luck, from `Space : )
