About “Sp1rit”

This is Kim's everyday ride and her Baby!
I just get to play with it from time to time! :D

She's a White 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo SS that we have owned since new. She just turned 50,000 miles not long ago.

In those six years till now (2008) we added a few vehicle Performance & Appearance mods to her to make her stand out from the crowd and have some style & uniqueness.

A Corsa Stainless Steel Exhaust with a new Hogan 2-1/2 inch down pipe and Magnaflow High flow converter that has the u-bend delete from 3800 Performance.
She sounds nice for a 3800 series II V6!
Deep and throaty, What an SS should sound like!

A Cold Air Inductions aluminum Intake with 9" K&N Cone Filter
MSD Coil Packs and more to come.
A (ZZP) ZZ Performance reprogrammed and tuned PCM Module.

There are some much needed handling upgrades as well installed which is all we really wanted in the first place!

A great handling car that's has good get up and go and fairly good on gas without having to buy a older Camaro Firebird or Vette and that looked good doing it.
Hey this is her everyday driver and not a racecar.
At $3.50+ a Gallon and climbing maybe over $4.00 a gallon by Summer, Were pretty happy with it!

Other Items include.
A Red front Speedbuilt strut tower brace.
Red Rear BMR Strut Tower brace
Ram Air Tech Polished billet aluminum dog bone engine supports and side braces,
KYB AGX adjustable sport gas struts and Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs.
Red BMR Tubular Trailing arms.
SLP Front and Rear Sway bars (Had Powder coated Red)
Forward and Rearward red adjustible BMR lateral arms.

We also Purchased a functional MPD-Inc Ram Air Hood (Thanks Eric!) with intake plenum as well and added some Polished Stainless steel Ram Air letters and Camaro SS Hood scoop grille to add some bling.
