The Fleetwood will be feeling a significant jump in performance. Parts going in all at once...

RAISS (The best looking CAI I've seen)
Budget headers
Beehive Valvesprings
A 218/224 cam
Probably a new water pump

A custom dyno tune for my setup.

Expected horsepower gains... Somewhere in the 80 horse range. Or more....

Beautiful!! Did you touch the suspension yet? The RAISS made a big difference from the K&N FIPK I had before.

I have two spare waterpumps that I had professionally powdercoated if you want! The grey/red one has only 1,200 miles on it, and the all red one has no miles on it... just let me know or make an offer.

Already running better brake pads and more rubber to the road. A big brake kit will come once I have the space behind the wheel.

As for the water pumps, are they factory gm water pumps, or remans?


Oh, as for suspension, currently on gas shocks, and I'll later do a full suspension setup. Either Eibach springs and gas shocks, or go with one of the full hot rod airbag setups from Air Ride Technologies

The grey/red one is factory GM and the red one is Bosch if I remember correctly... I will take some pics on a bit

Ok, I just took some pictures and looked over the two waterpumps. Powdercoating for each was ~$45.00. Adds a nice look under the hood.

1) Powdercoated Red. It is a unused A/C Delco unit. $90.00 shipped for this one:




2) Powdercoated Red/Grey. It is a slightly used (1,200 mile) Duralast unit. $65.00 shipped for this one:



You need to buy the gaskets, they are cheap from any auto parts store and I would personally go for the Felpro stuff over the cheap A/C Delco gaskets.
