While I think 300 at the wheels is possible, its not probable at least not with the current available mods. You will need a cam for sure and some sort of headers. The problem would come with the M62. I think with the stock pulley size there is not a lot of room to play with smaller pullies.

If your serious about this I would say N2O or turbo is your only current way.

And as mentioned above you have the trans to worry about. Even a good stock rebuild is not going to hold up for long.

$2k at least for a Turbo setup, then another $3k for the trans. A custom PCM would be required.

My apologies. I forgot we were talking about AT THE WHEELS. This is possible for the CRANK, but then even with a GOOD trans, you lose 20% before it gets to the wheels. Most lose a little bit more.

On average how much HP would you gain from
A: Decreasing the pulley size
B: Cold Air intake
C: opening up the exhaust
D: adding a Jet stage 2
This would be some good information as well because then once u have those numbers you can gage how much above and beyond that you have to go.

Most of these things are interrelated or dependent on other mods. For instance, to get the full 25hp out of a pulley change, you need the intake and exhaust. In GENERAL:

A: 25hp 40tq (assuming no KR)
B: 5-10hp (assuming pulley installed)
C: 5-10hp (assuming pulley installed)
D: 10-20hp assuming all the other stuff is done already. Jet claims 25hp with intake and exhaust, but I think that'* rather optimistic.

Ok, so this seems as good a time as any to ask;

- Which is better? A custom PCM burn or a performance chip (such as jet)? Or do you need both? I'm confused, since I noticed that you can get a-la-carte PCM burns on the Intense website for less than you pay for a non-specific Jet chip.

I'll admit that I didn't take the time to search this one before asking, so I'll take my lumps if this is a totally stupid/redundant question. However, my experience with my minitruck tells me that custom burns by specific vehicle focused vendors are usually better than generic performance chips.

Not 100%, I'm sure someone else will speak up, but I would think a completely custom burn would be much more sucessful than a generic chip.

Plus you can really customise the parameters to best suit your needs.

Custom. Hands down. But, you need lots of data and dyno runs to make it better than a generic chip.
Remeber no 2 cars are alike.

I have 2 questions
1. Where do i get a performance chip/pcm for my 95 and is it worth it?
2.Why is it when i do the boost trick (Where you sldie down the boost control so that you get to full boost faster) It seems liek i loose performance overall instead of gaining...
