.... I miss my L67 SSEi. Don't get me wrong, the L36 is one peppy NA engine, but once given a dose of a 270 HP/300+ lb ft L67, a 215 hp/240 lb ft L36 really feels like it'* lacking.
I definitely want to keep my SSE, but seeing that I can pick up a 1999 SSEi with under 100k for under $5800 just seems too tempting -that'* less $$$ and a little over half the miles than what I had on my SSEi when I sold it for $6k. Heck I can even get a 1996 SSEi with 120k for around $4500.
So, what I'm thinking is by June 1st expect there to be another L67 Bonneville in my driveway.
Hopefully I can pull off that goal of a low 15-second L36 SSE before then because once I get a L67 the modding stops on the SSE. Right now if I could pull off a low 2.2 60' I'd be pulling 15.5'*. Pulled a 15.948 with a 2.47 60' so dropping .2 from the 60' would be .4 in the 1/4.
Intense PCM, Rockers, ported mani'*, and I should easily be in the 15.1-15.3'*.
Anyhow, just a little remorseful after knowing that I'll never get those easy-to-attain-with-a-L67 #'* with my L36.
Only way a SSEi won't join the stable is if ZZP actually makes the M90 kit a reality for under $1k. Question being -when the listed mods needed to fit the M90 to a L36 they didn't make any mention of pulley'* driving the M90.
Anyhow, that'* my rant for the day.
