I would just like to say thanks for recommending me to keep my car. I have a 91 Eldorado Touring Coupe/Black. It has 138,000 miles on it but still runs good. What I would like to do is replace the entire exhaust system. I would add 2 cherry bomb mufflers,install a new cat, and put on twin dual exhaust tips. Want to replace the rims and get some crome 17's and tint all the windows. Finally get some new seat covers and service the computer. Now I like the cherry bombs because they are loud but would I be better off running straight pipes with no mufflers. How much of a sound difference would there be between the cherry bombs and no mufflers? I will probably also replace all the audio with sony products.

No nothing really. I have to add some oil every week or so but that is about it and just keep an eye on the fluids. The cat is really the only thing mechanically wrong with it, which will be replaced soon.

Yea thats what a figured. I just ordered the cat convertor and a new ISC from NAPA, once those are installed I am going to change the spark plugs and the wires. I may just end up putting new exhaust tips on and pass on the cherry bombs, maybe I'll add a Flowmaster 40 series to it. It seems that it would be cheaper and easier to install a Flowmaster. Plus they still have a good tone. All what I know is Leather cost a lot, one place wanted over a $1,000 to do it and with a car with that many miles it may not be worth it.

I looked around for leather seat covers online for my car but couldent find none. One site had them for 92- Eldorado, I wonder if those would fit? They wanted like $750 for the entire set, front and back.

Well today my dad and went out and got a new ISC(Idle Speed Control) unit. The engines rpm's kept starting at around 900 and would gradually drop to 750, but it would take 4-5 minutes for that to happen. If I left at 900rpm's the engine would stall so I would have to wait for it to get to 750 before I left. This not only slowed me down but wasted gas too. So we went to NAPA and got a new one. They had a Japan model for $82 and a American one for $120. We bought the American one and he sold it to us for $91, so it was a good deal. It wasnt to hard taking the old one off, just time consuming, to get all the screws out and the one sensor back in was a pain. Then I fired it up, it started at 900rpm's and quickly, within 5 seconds, droped to 725rpm's. Well thats one thing fixed and about 5 to go.
