Other mods include an MSD BTM

Julie has an exhaust temperature gauge that measures the exhaust temp in _each_ cylinder instead of just one.
This is a really nice piece that is normally used in aircraft and costs $1000.
Julie is also kept informed of what is going on with her car by looking at the boost, oil pressure and fuel
pressure gauges. She keeps track of the RPMs with a Monster tach.
Her car has been seen in the reader's rides section of January '96 issue of All Chevy,

called "Dragnet" in the September '96 issue of High Tech Performance
