14.6 is pretty impressive to me. Bonnevilles are big, heavy cars. HP estimate would be cool. 300 maybe? I dunno

Estimates from the habitual WCBF track hounds that drove her (nearly everyone did) put the Zilla right on the edge of the 13'* with good traction.

Very hard to guess, as it'* too far different from the S2 L67 to compare. And the HP isn't where she shines. It'* the torque that blows me away.

Let'* take it backwards a bit and try to figure it out:

Gen3 swap came later, but we'll use that 225hp 260tq point to start with, then figure in the rest.

Jet Stage 2 PCM (10hp? enables other mods)
Magnaflow Cat and ceramic PEM'*? (mostly allows smaller pulley, but call it 10 hp total)
CAI with ram-cold feed (5hp)
SC pulley typically nets 25hp/40tq for the first step, each following step is smaller. (35/50)
Flowmatched injectors (yes, this adds power, 5-10hp calculated by FIE)
How much for my porting/polishing on the TB, SC, and LIM? 20hp?
Plus a trans with 5% less loss than a new OEM trans (gauranteed).

My guesses based on the Mod list in my sig (not up to date) probably put me close to 300hp/350tq at the crank, 20% less to the wheels. But my car will run at the track slower than a S2 with the same numbers because of WHERE in the RPM band I deliver my power. I'll beat that 300/350 crank S2 L67 to the 1/8 handily, then they'll run me down.

Play with the numbers a bit. I'm game.

What'* the 260 tq number you started with? Is that the 93 L67 stock #? I though it was higher. I know the 94 has 275...

I totally forgot about the smaller pulley when I estimated the hp. Very easy to get 300hp out of a S1 L67.

I actually would have guessed your CAI would net you more than 5 hp too. At least 10.. ?

Sometimes low balling the numbers is better though...
Thats pretty close I think.
The tourque is ******* amazing, it pulls SOO strongly

IMO the series 1 has a lot of potential, just look what people have been doing to Holdens over in Australia.

Don't forget that'* the L27. They never had the S1 L67. It'* greek to them.

Alot of people lose track of the condition of the mods on my car. The fact most often forgotten is that the typical pulley size to move to with mods on a Gen3 setup is a 2.5". I moved from THERE to a 2.2", and again down to a 2.0".

My goal by spring is to be able to run the 2.0" on pump gas (I can currently with the 2.2").

You need to come down here and get some of this 93 octane instead of the 92
