Yes, I should have introduced myself properly. Apologies.

Hmmm, the first thing I would suggest is a thorough tune-up. That means, plugs, wires, PCV valve, O2 sensor(maybe), tranny oil change. That sort of thing. After all that is done, then you can start modifications. Before that, and you could jeopardize your own safety.

also, those parts will help gain back what little power you may have lost after accumulating milage. You need to do a sig so we know what you are driving. Click on profile towards the top to get there.

via G-tech it showed my 0-60 in 5.2 sec the i did not have a problem with wheel spin.
I found out I had a N/a Memcal when I got the correct memcal for the car it would hardly run , I finally got the car to where it was suppose to be and made a few more 0-60 runs and now I have a problem with wheel spin and best since was a 5.8 0-60. I need better tires or something to stop the spinning and get an accurate 0-60

I wish there were a track around here so I could find out what mine runs. I wouldn't expect anything faster than low 8'* at this time. But after start-up when warmed up a bit and still cool this car flies. But I've driven an SSEi (modded) now, so 'fly' really doesn't describe my car as well anymore

Pete, i'd actually like to see how the Runner and the Pearl stack up against each other. We've got the same engine, same intake setups, same wires....

But you're heavier

How much heavier? I'm 3,587 lbs I believe, not including my weight of 165. I'd like to see how we stack up too. I wish I drove your car at the meet. But I could tell when I was in the backseat your car seems and sounds a lot like mine. Sure would be interesting. But I already know your engine must be in better shape or something, since I got 1/ 2 the mileage you did, even though I only drove 75-80 most of the way up. Maybe I need new plugs again. I don't have that many more miles than you either, only about 7,000 more.

Yeah, I'd like to see how my 1994 would run up against you two also. Would definitely be interesting. I wish I had an extra driver to bring that to Bonneville Nats in July, but I'll probably be driving an SSEi (still not sure if I wanna demod the current hog and get a lower mileage SSEi -like the sweet silver 2000 SSEi I just found with only 104,xxx miles for only $7900).
Hey Pete, get the Chip in your friends 1994 SE yet? Be sure to let us know as I really want to know if that thing really works in the proper car -remember it'* supposed to take up to 1,000 miles for it to fully 'learn' to the car.
