2004 Chevy Monte Carlo SS
Spring 2011 - Installing Performance Mods
I know a lot of people find the above picture amusing, the fact I have the front of the Monte protected with blankets, but I will tell you...
Those are three cheap (like $4-$5) movers blankets from Harbor Frieght and because you can tuck them into weird spots on the car work BETTER
at protecting the entire car then any fender cover/bib I've seen.
Since buying my Monte in 2008, I began doing a lot of reading regarding various performance modifications, and well eventually got the itch to do some modding myself. As seen on my web site, I began small with the drop in K&N filter and the UMI Performance Trailing Arms. In 2010, I began to expand MORE with the ZZP 2.5" Downpipe with High Flow Cat and the L67 coil packs. After the downpipe, I did more research, saving and stocking piling to eventually do some more serious work to the top end of my Monte Carlo. Below is the list of mods I had stock piled for my Monte:
Before I go any further, I want to take a moment to recognize some of the people and forums that made this all happen (if it wasn't for people like these, I may never have done any of this). I know I've spotlighted some of these people/forums in other parts of my web site as they specifically pertained to different tasks, but I'd like to group them up right here (as doing these mods was more then one little task):
Misc - L67 Throttle Body Alignment
Misc - Front Plug Wire Separators
