You'd be supprised at what a decent intake can do for low end torque on the series one engines...

Look on your spare tire cover, there will be an RPO list.... Look for F17 or FW2

F17 is the 2.84 gear ratio and FW2 is the 3.06( More performance minded )
yes a 3.06 will KILL a 2.87 with somilar mods....proven by me and witnessed by many members...there even is a video

Following the basic mods you can squeeze a good amount out. I'd suggest looking up 95STNA'* threads...lots of interesting things and he'* got a super fast car.

a good CAI, and High flow cat will really wake up the car....out cars have insane torque (225 fl lbs) off the line.... it really gets the car moving...also this is what kills the trans.....but with the mods listed above you will be able to beat most of the cars that you encounter on the street

One of the suggested mods if you do a lot of quick starts is an upgraded transmission. Willwren has a great write up on transmissions and the performance parts to go in.

A few have bought CAI'* on ebay and found them to be very short and usually pull in engine heat which is why Pat suggests building your own CAI with heatshield.

the piping from intense is a viable option now....the drawback is a dirty filter faster
