Re: Anyone Like Mods'?

I have only three modification to my GTA beside color of some paints that I used and finishes. I want to keep my GTA as original as possible so I do not have too many modifications. The only modification I have besides some painted colors not original (example - yellow finish on calipers - factory it was black). The modifications I have done are performance inhancement only. I have flat top directional pistons in car specially design to keep engine heat from transfering down the piston and into the crank case where the oil is. These pistons are made by Keith Black. They do not make compression much different but I did it because of the heat like I mention. Another modification is I use brass freeze plugs and oil galley plugs. The factory ones were steal and they deteriorate much faster then brass ones. Now the other modification I did was I have some special heat proof fabric which were made into some sort of like boots which protects the spark plug wires from the heat of the exhaust manifolds. Are these considered a modification to this car becuase they did not come with car? So far, the working very well, because I have not had any melted or cracking spark plug wires near where the heat is very intense from the exhaust manifolds. You can see these heat resistant boots in this photograph I took last weekend of the drivers side of engine near the exhaust manifold. This is a performance modification, may not make car go faster but it keeping the wires from being damaged and maintain good working conditions longer. Yumiko
