My 6 week Christmas break from school is coming up soon and I will be very very bored. Watch out for some heads/nitrous/turbo work done to my car as well as exhaust and suspension.

You're talking a custom intake manifold here.......if you have an idea lurking around in your gearhead, share it! This opens up a couple interesting possibilities.....and a couple complications. I suppose you could stick with just a single MAF and TPS, and leave the other TB un-sensored. It would simplify it greatly. Also remember the Series 1 TB was smaller in diameter than the Series 2.

I second that motion! Not the fatest, but the reddest.

Heh, actually yes. You catch on too quickly to how I think. Actually we were having some beer the other night and we are going to do an adjustable sheetmetal intake manfold. I don't like the runners on the L36 and we can have the sheetmetal manifold tunable for max torque at 3k rpm, or 4 just by changing the length of the runners. We also will probably try on my car a motorized system like the BMW'* use to have a flat torque curve from 2500 rpm'* and on. Like ADTR now? Then when the turbo goes on my car, imagine what that intake manifold can do, help make more power w/ boost... Hehehe, we are so stupid. It'* wonderful.

And anyone up for a Lightning or Cobra Throttle Body from Accufab? Hehehe..


P.*.

Complinitor-You're running right in my target range (my goal is 14.50'*) Did you have to do anything with the tranny? You're N/A too, right? How about some flow bench data, oversized valves... worth the $$$ or not? Where can you get a custom PROM for these cars?

Welcome, AC/DC fan! I will be going to a mechanical shift kit from Thrasher http://www.thrashercharged.com/store_htm/store.shtm in the spring. I have only tweaked my PCM for firmer shifts. The PCM in the 98'* are unable to accept chips, but if you have the proper computer equipment, you can do it. Check out Jet, Hypertech and Superchips for your 88. As for the flow data, I'd have to call the shop that did the work and get that. I do have the dyno numbers. These are at the wheels and are different than the GM listed specs which are at the crank (BIG DIFF)...
Stock - 197HP / 225FTlbs
After headwork & rockers - 220HP / 251FTlbs
After high flow cat, K&N, resonator removed - 231HP/ /256FTlbs
A lot of people worry about the HP-$$$ratio. If you are on a limited budget and not racing you B on a regular basis, the headwork is not for you.
Also, you'll get a better flow if you go to a more radical cam, but I didn't want to break into that system, so I went for the upsteam rockers. They do about 75% of what a new cam would, so I'm happy... for now.

heads can't be more than $500 can they? Maybe I'm from the old school of performace (as well as old school music, strange for a 16 yr old) but i think that all heads and induction should be taken car of before a cam. but before i'll touch the motor i'm taking care of suspention and tranny, building it from the ground up. as you can see i've already started w/ the tires
