After reading your mods list it seems you would really benefit from a 2.5" SC pulley. You've got the headers, CAI (an air tube ducting cold air from down low that is easily removed for car shows would also help reduce KR -if you have any), and better plugs (?), and some good wires and you'll probably be running with around 220 RWHP at the wheels (going rwd cuts powerloss that is associated with FWDs). My guess is right now you probably are putting about 200 through the big meats -which brings me to ask, how'* the traction -are there any traction issues with those big shoes?

OLBlueEyesBonne,
Hold on! Have not even moved it under its own power yet... right now I am researching what scan tool to get and trying to (1) get the idle down (2500) and (2) get it in gear. I installed a TCI TCU (Transmission Control Unit) for the 4L60E. Its Windows based. So far it will not recognize any gear selection but Park. I purchased Windows based software product called 'Smart Draw' that I am using to create all my electrical circuits. So anyway I am looking for a Windows based scan tool so everything is on a laptop dedicated to the '36.

Willwren, love to join you if I ever get this thing out of the garage!

Thirty6, you might check out www.L67swap.com and see if anyone there sells or knows where you can get something for your setup. I am not aware of anyone here running a scanner on their 1994/1995 OBDI.5 hybrid. I am sure there are a few people with Fiero'* who have dealt with someone who can set you up with a good scanner and PCM/Chip programmed for your setup.

Good luck -I can't wait for you to get that on the road and to car shows -wonder what people will say when they see that SC'ed 3800 under the hood.
