I'd be interested to know what kind of performance numbers your SSEi is getting now with the rockers and mini-AFC compared to mine.
So would I. We went to the track today in the GTP (with some crappy results I might add only improved on the PB by .028 seconds) but my mom decided to stop by after work and watch us run the GTP, so the Bonneville was at the track and everything, but my mom didn't want to pay the extra $5 or whatever it is for racing, even though we all badly want to know how fast the car is. She said it would've been too much work to get everything out of the trunk. (She has about 300lbs. of work stuff in her trunk because she drives all over the state for her job, and pretty much uses her car as an office)

It was funny today at the track though. The only time we had ever been to the track before today was at MGM3 which was all Grand Prixs. When we went to the track today, it was test and tune, and that is for anyone. And after we ran a couple high 12 runs in the GTP people were coming from everywhere asking what the hell we did to the car. They had never seen a FWD V6 run that fast. The first thing everyone asks is: Are you spraying? And when we say no, they don't believe it. Then there was an old man (old to me anyways) probably in his 60'* that came up and asked what we did to it to make it that fast. Then he said, that'* DAMN FAST! Then his exact words were "That car would blow the damn doors off of my WS6!" Then he said, "I started laughing when I saw you pull in here because I was thinking what the hell is this slow *** car doing at the dragstrip, because I would've bet money that car didn't run anywhere near as fast as it does." The fastest time we have run now is 12.780 @ 106.05. The injectors are running very static, and the car loses all power top-end because the injectors can't flow well enough, hense the slower trap speed. With bigger injectors this car should fly! Before our trap was 107.50, and that was right as the injectors were about to run static, but now it loses all power because they run static once the car is in 3rd gear. We have done quite a bit of work since the last time at the track, but the injectors won't let the car go any faster.

Sounds like my wife. The SSEi is really her car. She tells me to stick to racing in my Firebird.
You'll just have to get you Dad to sneak it away some evening.

Yeah, we should sometime soon. My mom wouldn't care, she would just want some form of transportation while we were using her car. (She would just have to settle for my dads winter beater, a 1990 Turbocharged & Intercooled 3.1 Liter Grand Prix, for the time being) I want to at least run the G-Tech on the SSEi to see approximately how fast it is, I should do that one of these days.
