Maybe once in a while I will let it get out and go, but mostly it will be for showing honda Civics that the "Granny Mobile" will kick it ***. That is all I am going to use it for. Anyway I am looking at a 95 for an everyday driver anyway

If your looking for a 95 Bonnie as a daily driver, you should probably use that for performance and the 92 as the everyday. Or just buy a 95 and sell the 92 so you can mod the 95.
Either way if you get a Series 1 L67 or L36 equipped 95, you'll be better off modding that. The 94-95 ser 1 L67 especially, since they have been freakishly fast lately.

The reason I want to mod my 92 is because of the milleage that is on the whole car. My car just turned over 69,000 miles and the 95 has about 160-170k on it. So I would like to keep the 92 for modding because it is an SSE.

When and if you do the trans, DO a shift kit. It'll extend the life of the rebuild AND help with performance.

The 92 SSE has an L27 without roller rocker arms. Something like 170 hp and 220 ft-lbs at the crank. The 95 L36 has 205/230 and the 95 L67 has 225/275.
I'm just saying you might be modding the 92 to be just as fast as the 95 (if it'* a L36) or slower than the 95 (if it'* a L67).
But if reeeally want to mod a L27, go for it. I'd like to see how much hp they can squeeze out.

Well I have been researching on parts for my 92 and I have found the heads for it witht the roller rocker arms for $400 and not only that I have found a high performance camshaft kit for it also and I will be adding alot more in the next year or so. I will keep you guys posted on my build and tell you the HP rating after I am completely finished.

$400 for 93-95 heads is way too much. You could do alot better than that.

Cams, rockers, and the like are all at www.seriesoneperformance.com
Most of the valvetrain stuff is coming from the Holden market in Austrailia.

Get used heads and valvetrain parts. Why are you messing with higher ratio rocker arms when you're doing a cam?
