Intake, PCM, rockers, exhaust work ... maybe it'* possible, and that would be in your price range. A cam would get you there easily, and you might be able to fit that in your budget.

Most GTP'*, GS'*, and SSEi'* are in the mid-high 6 range in stock form, and they are putting down low 15, high 14 second 1/4'*.

Many rocker'ed GP GT'* are in the high 14'*, so it'* very possible with the Bonnies, since they only weight a little bit more.

I hope you're SE has 3.06 gearing. If you have a column shifter check your RPO'*. If you have the 2.84 gearing, RPO R17 I thiink, you'll have a LOT of work ahead of you.

It would be nice to get in the high 6'* at least


2-3 years ago this car was great but now every things getting much faster.

Look at Maximas now.

How accurate are Gtechs?

If my 60 takes longer then 8.5 I probably wont even try it. My sister has a 5.9 Durango and that supposedly runs 60 in 8.2

They feel bout the same but the durango seems slower past 50

a twin engine project isnt for everyone though...

About the G-Techs they seem to be fairly accurate from what Ive seen. my 96 Cut w/ the 3100 ran a 16.3 at the track on a humid 70 degree night but then not to long after that we had the g-tech out and I ran a 15.97 with a 7.5 0-60 on a dry 40 degree night. One of these days when I have extra scratch layin around I want to buy one of my own.
