Basically speaking, I have a chip, exhaust, intake, pulley, and ram-air. Everything else just makes it run smoother, stop faster, and look good.

And yes, a cam or rockers would be nice
Well really a chip, exhaust, intake, pulley, and ram air are some pretty large power adding mods for these engines. Obviously comparing it to a Series II is far from fair, but really it ain't that bad. It would hold its own with 3 of our cars...and blow away two others...and the other one can't really be compared to much. Your Greenzilla vs. our SSEi, TGP, or my TSTE would be very interesting to see...I would bet they would be very close. I'm estimating that our TGP and my TSTE are both right around 14.4...which is where you are at. With some custom headers and some rockers or a cam and you definately wouldn't have a problem keeping up with a few of them.

you'll absolutely kill that Riviera. You're much faster than what a Riviera is. a 95 riviera is probably close to 15.7 in the 1/4.

I was talking about 'racing with wrenches'

BTW, all my times are from my Gtech Pro Comp. The day I pulled the 14.4, I also pulled a 14.6 and a 14.7 (3 back to back runs). I still don't know how much I trust that meter.

Bill, rockers will be too much of a PITA, and cost more then a cam, i'll tell you now. And they aren't as good as the cam anyways.

Better do it quick after me, or you may be slower then an l27
