Is that kind of work difficult to do and does anyone think a G tech meter is a good investment?

300 HP at the wheels with a S1? Nope prob. never.
Looking at the S2 guys you'd prob. need a full IC, headers, 1:9.1 Rockers/cam and you would still prob. fall short.

I disagree with Blazin to a point.

With METICULOUS care and patience, a Series 1 can be made to put that power down without an IC.

It'll require:

1. Factory Service Manuals and a DAMN good tuneup
2. A GOOD scantool
3. The basics; pulley, drilled 180 stat, GOOD intake/cai, and a WELL planned exhaust
4. A cam or rockers (cam preferred)
5. Ported EM'*
6. Laborious porting and polishing on the top end
7. PCM (Jet may not be good enough)
8. At LEAST a new OEM fuel pump
9. A VERY GOOD high-performance trans build designed to prevent drivetrain loss
10. A little bit of luck that you started with a tight motor to begin with

One Billion Horsepower. Name the movie.

And if I'm wrong, at least it still looks good.

I'd love to see a Series 2 make 300 at the wheels with the stuff listed above let alone a Series 1...

I never said it couldn't make good power... But 300HP at the wheels - It better be a big cam, crazy porting to the heads, a '94-'95 SC, 115 leaded gas, and a zillion dyno tune hours... But Will if you can/will make 300 WHP non IC'd more power to ya!

Just a tad of topic but thats the plan your following isn't it. All the stars I put in are the ones you did and I know you have a cam waiting also.

Just stick with DrJay, willwren, llBlazin_llLo and the others here. they'll lead the way. Sorry I can't add anything to this but I just got a series 1 l67 myself so I know what your striving for.
