I'm working on some valvetrain parts with DrJay, I'll keep you all updated when I find out more.

Cool, I am willing to try anything. NEEEED MOOOORRRREE POOOWWWEEER


I guess I should be around 170 or to HP stock, maybe more with my K&N Air Filter. So I have only 35 HP till I reach my goal!!! If I could gain 50 HP that would be even better, but for now I will try to reach 205 to 210 HP

I wish I was in college working 50 hours a week again! I want more money to put into this baby. I'm interested in new internals after reading DrJay'* pages also. If I had all the money in the world I'd still do it myself (with some help) so I can learn more about this engine. I don't know if I'd get Nitrous though. If I did I'd rebuild it first...hell I want to do that eventually so maybe I will get N2O

My goal when I started was to get 200hp. I know I'm not there yet but am hovering around 190. With some more time and money you could get to 205 no problem. Me too

Anyone know anything about more powerful fuel injectors? I seen some made by Accel in my Jegs catalog.

Dr. Jay just made a HUGE rebuild on his series I SSEi. He is pushing out SERIOUS HP. Thing sounds like a freaking turbo'ed V8.

Don't touch injectors unless you can customize your PCM. For now worry about allowing the engine to breath easier (intake/exhaust), then work on valvetrain or more serious internal mods.

I see you have a chip installed in your bonny from your sig, what does that do for you? How much do chips help the performance?

I'll field that one....Mach is still asleep, I bet.

Allmachtige is running the Superchip, I'm running the Jet Stage 2. Both chips are very similar. They firm up the shift points, and raise them slightly, also raising the redline. My chip (not sure about his) also removes the top speed limiter. Skip shifting is also an option for some chips......and more:

Quote:
The ECM in the vehicle looks at various sensors such as manifold vacuum, coolant temperature, throttle position and RPM, it then processes this information and adjusts spark timing, air/fuel ratio and other parameter according to the tables stored in the JET Performance chip/module memory. By recalibrating these tables we are able to tune the engine for the maximum horsepower and torque under various driving conditions.

By installing the JET chip or module these extra increases in performance enhance drivability, towing capabilities, reduce miles times and provide improved overall efficiency.
Basic requirements before chipping are usually the 180 thermostat, intake, and exhaust. My personal suggestion is to also add a tranny cooler. Most chips will also require you to run higher octane fuel, as well.
