Default Series 1 L67....interested in a new mod? BIG mod?

92-93 SSEi, SC SSE or SE......would you be interested in a new mod that would allow you to run one more pulley size smaller without KR? Similar to an intercooler?

Would it be worth $300-$500 to you? (probably closer to the $300)

We have enough of us here, that it may be time for this. Sound off. I'm not doing a poll, I just want your comments. What it is and how it looks are moot points right now. Easy mod, 4-6 hour install. 92-93 would be able to safely run a 2" pulley, 94/95 would be able to run a 2.2". Not as effective as an intercooler like the Series 2, but maybe 1/3 as effective?

Doing a bulk production run of your water/alcohol injection?

Not injection of any type.
I'm not here to make money. My idea, but no profit to me. I just need to see if it'* worth pursuing.

I'm in if I get a Series I L67 -the 1998 Park Ultra I drove 320 miles round trip for was everything they said it wasn't. I'm now eye-balling a 1992 Park Ultra w/115k ($2200 -but it looks too plain compared to my moms Vogue Edition Park Ultra and they're the same color) and a 1993 Park Ultra with 140K ($2900 and it has a cool vynil top as well as the Gran Touring Ride).
Ok, back on topic -details, details -even a hint?

No hints. I don't want this one to be 'stolen' by some idiot, and patented before I can. We have to protect this one.

I could be making a prototype within days.

3 Protos will be built. Still working out the details. This is the culmination of 18 months of work. Keep in mind it'* a compromise. Not as effective as an intercooler, but not bad for a fraction of an intercooler cost.

All we need is just enough to drop another pulley size, and that'* what I'm after here.
