What stuff? I just looked at the top 25 topics in P&B, and don't see a single one that'* been shot down. Although I'll admit the 19 pounds of boost from an M90 is close.

SURELY you can't accuse me of that. Look, if you can find a motive other than to give you the best possible knowledge before spending your money let me know.

The dyno'* were half to show that many don't benefit from that high of shift, and half to show that there can be huge differences in peak HP from relatively similar cars. The fact is there really is no way of telling where you peak, there are too many factors involved. Can you tell me where your peak is?

I'm sure if you shop around you can get a dyno run for $60 or so. Add that to the $40 you're paying for the chip and you'll get performance you can be sure of and its still a HECK of a deal.

Ok really though, thats my last comments on it. Do whatcha will

superchip
-My car wouldn't even idle with the stock chip
-I remember u saying, get the afc out, put the stock chip in
-well turns out i do not have any knock retard anymore i used my shot down approach

-Supercharging a L27
Everytime i read this topic, it always ends up being 'not worth it' 'save money, get ssei'
Why not 'damn that would be sweet to see a swap like that'
I've had a mechanic tell me a sucess story(with stock tranny) but i didn't say anything b/c i'd get the bs flag pulled on me.
-Supercharging a L36
Shot down in the same fasion
This can definatley be done regardless of the tranny.

These are things off the top of my head

I really think people should start evaluating ideas looking at it from every possible angle

We warned you about Superchips. We also told you not to 'fix' your car with an AFC calibrator. Wrong tool for the wrong job. That'* not a performance idea 'shoot down'.
That'* not different than holding your master cylinder in with chewing gum. Wrong tool, wrong job. We didn't 'shoot you down'. We told you the proper way to attack this was to FIX the problem first, then put on the AFC if you needed it. Your idle problem was caused by something unknown, and to this day, you probably still don't know what it is. You masked it with a performance tuner.


-Supercharging a L27/36
If you could buy a 1 pound can of Jif peanut butter for $1, why would you pay $5 for the same tasting stuff with a Jif label on it? Do you honestly have any idea the pure physical cost in converting something like that? Especially the L36, which can't even use the same heads? If you have an SE valued at $3000, SELL the thing, throw another $1k at an SSEi, rather than spend $2-$3k on a conversion. THAT'* why nobody has done it. How many members at ClubGP? 12,000? There'* a reason none of them have done the conversion too.

We do too. That'* why we try to help you SEE every possible angle. Including the angle that you might not get the chip you think you're getting.

DrJay'* advice is the best I've heard in a long time. Get a cheaper dyno pull, give hard numbers to GM Tuners, and get TWICE the chip. The way we discuss ideas on this forum saves COUNTLESS thousands of dollars for our members. We're trying to find the best way to get the biggest bang for the performance dollar. We don't shoot ideas down. If they're not practical, we offer other options.

Samantics? The impression i get when i post new ideas sometimes is just a bad one.

L27> to the best or YOUR knowledge it hasn't been done.
There has been L67 swapped GTs and 9.4:1 compression blocks with m90s. Potential?

I SAW what your saying a long timeago. And i've still got massive amounts of faith in the decision i made.

Let me bring back the question about the intense pcms.
So everyone on this board who purchaced one, installed it, and uses it is probably hurting thier performance due to the higher shifts?

*****LITTLE KNOWN FACT*****

I have spent countless hours and dollars trying to find a viable option for the 94/95 PCM tuning. Do I need one? No. My cellphone bill was over 100 bucks one month as a result...thank GOD I don't have to pay for long distance, too. Why did I do this? Because a member here with a 95 SSEi posted that a chip tuner was willing to set up REDLINE shifts on his chip. My search continues. And it will until I find an option that will satisfy people. My goal is to keep people from spending money and not getting what they wanted out of it. Budgets are tighter here than on ClubGP.

I gain nothing from this, but put aside my own personal projects and spend hard earned money that would benefit me better by using it to buy rockers for my own car.

I'm not even going into SC Performance and Floz. The rest of the members can tell you about that.

Your impressions are wrong. That'* the point I'm making in this reply. You also have to remember that not every member here climbs up into their engine bay barefoot to tackle a project.

PM me for further information on the chip tuner I referenced above. I won't post more specifics until I know more, but I can give you my impressions.

Cry me a river, i never asked you to run up your phone bill.
The climbing up in the engine thing, that was cute. Way to be an adult
