2.5, but you want atleast an intake first, and 180 degree stat. Tranny cooler too.

A 2.2 might be pushing it too much on a '95. A 2.2 is the ideal size for 92-93 SSEi'*. 94-95 ideal size is a 2.5, and maybe a 2.4.

The 180T intake, exhaust, and tranny cooler are all great ideas to do before the pulley to make sure you get the most out of it. Doesn'tmatter how much boost the SC can make if it can't suck it on thru the intake or spit it out thru the exhaust.

Any intake offered at Domestic Performance should be great. You would probably gain about 20 hp max with an unmodded car, maybe 25 with intake and exhaust mods from the pulley. Where you REALLY gain is in the torque department, but I couldn't begin to tell you how much there.

Yes, that'* probably the single most noticeable perforamance increase you can go for. It'* also the most economical hp/cost ratio out there. But you'll feel MORE if you do your intake and exhaust first. You have to open it up for the pulley to be able to do it'* job.
