Does anyone know what exactly GM did to the series I to get more power in the series II, and likewise with the series III ???

The series II only has 5 more lb/ft more, and it'* at a higher RPM, therefore making more HP, to a higher compression ratio.

Series III has an electronic throttle and some other things.

The series II was a complete redesign, for the better? Well we're not sure.

I have ridden in both, and I like the series II better, the power is more balanced throughout the RPM band. As a driver of two L36'* I am a little biased tho.

Well i've got my setup for a Cam and Pushrods set.

Any P&P recommendations, I've heard that liberal WD-40 is a huge help, and will take the # of bits used down considerably. I've got a rotozip (dremel) at home, and plenty of power drills, and cordless ones too.
