Ok... looks like we are talking 95 here. I've had and worked on many 95'*. First off..(joking here) discount anything performance the Venom said..he'* so old and and out of the loop that I'm surprised he didn't go lookin for a carb on his GXP. hehehe

Seriously though, the Bonne lacks aftermarket, the S1 Bonne is further lacking. Reason behind this is there were very few SC'd GM'* that caught the performance market before 97. In 97 both the Regal and Grand Prix got the S2 SC motor and it picked up by the aftermarket folks after that.

Folks have found rockers, smaller pullies and Sinister Performance for programming the pcm on the S1. Other than that there is little. Upgraded trans parts and shift kits are available through Transgo. For the most part though the trans suffers from fluid starvation at high rpms and the diff is a weakpoint that frequently comes through the casing when you abuse the car.

To date the fastest S1 without nitrous is running a 14.2 and having lots of dependability issues last I heard.

Others have develeped one off cams etc, but that is competely custom.

really, what i had in mind was a smaller pulley and pcm programming....and maybe have the trans rebuilt with heavier-duty parts. other than those"bigger" things, i was just going to stick with an exhaust, intake, and upgraded brakes.

Shut up Bill, I'm busy looking for the distributor cap so I can stick the little allen wrench in and back my timing enough to take the 150 nitrous shot.

before you dump 500 or a grand into it just sell it and get a series 2. if your serious about performance it'* your ONLY option. take the 5-1k you have for mods and put it into a better car.

Some people just want to add a little pep to the car they love and are familiar with. Not take it to a local drag strip.
