Nate, I personally don't like the thought of a FWI on my car. I'm planning on having my intake pipe powder coated next week, as well as making a new air box (possibly implementing a SII air box and accordian tube with the 3" pipe through it -air box modified of course).

If you have any doubt in your mind about a smaller pulley and KR race gas is going to be your friend.

As for the chip keep on adding one degree of timing until you see KR and then back off one or two degrees. You should be golden then!
I'm thinking for my first burn I'm going to request +3* timing, and possibly I'll buy an extra E-prom (with different broadcast code) and have that set with +2* and a few other difference'* from the first burn.
I definitely will be running Will'* blend of race fuel of 92 or 93 octane with a 3:1 ratio of Toluene which really has worked wonders in my experiences with it (see results from both times my brothers 97 SSEi was at the track (Toluene, CAI, and simple weight reduction dropped a solid .3 in the 1/8 mile ....equivalent to approx .45 in the 1/4).

As far as my current boost levels ....call me stupid -NATE!!!! WTF didn't we check manifold pressure? I haven't had a boost guage on the car since last August at the track!!!! We definitely will be checking that this Saturday.

My scan tool doesn't read boost levels in live data monitoring, sorry. Anyways, powder coat all you want, it'* not the pipe getting warm heating up the air as much as it is pulling the hot air from the engine bay.

I was thinking about it, and you may save yourself, what? 2-3*?

From what I've heard and read, in a situation such as my CAI which doesn't get to such extreme as exhaust manifolds, so powdercoating can actually do 95% of the job that ceramic coating would do in such low temps so for the cost it'* a lot more feasible.
And at the cost I will be getting rice pipes powder coated it'* more than worth trying it.

Oh, BTW, Andrews custom burn 95 L67 Eprom (Broadcast Code BKKH) has now been procurred so we can do some scan'* with that this weekend to see what it has over my stock unit (Broadcast Code BKZZ).

But your 3" exhaust is killing you. We've discussed this before. Even though you've got no KRr, it'* still hurting you. The only two 92-95 L67'* that ever tried 3" exhaust lost low end.
I have not lost low end with my 3". If anything, I've gained right across the rpm range. The proof will be determined soon.......as long as I can keep this engine running. Ohhh...I see you specified 92-95 L67'*.

Bill, you shouldn't be too concerned with running a smaller pulley when you have a water injection system.

Throttle body modifications are Saturday to enable me to move my injection point.

Ya know I don't even have to plug my scan tool in to tell you exactly what that chip does?

I'll make it easy, removes the governor.....and then all it does is JACK ****.

BTW IIRC BKKH is a N/A 3.8 eprom....found in Lumina APV'*....Because I think I got one sitting around here.

I recall the topics about that very chip from the day Nytro got it. Be VERY careful with that thing. It could be bad news.

Our cars side by side, with my 18'* on, 150-200 lbs of stereo in the trunk, and I can ALMOST pull on you with a 1/3 of the exhaust work, 91 octane, and stock manifolds. We're even with the CAI, 2.5 pulley.

I know for FACT that chip won't do anything different for ya.

Marty...I did something with my stock S2 box that I'll try and get pics of this w/e for you. I shielded from the radiator and added weatherstrip to seal it to the radiator support w/o making it permanent. Then cut out the rad support a little more.
