Default I finally did it.

I just ordered my 2.2 inch pulley and my Stage 2 Jet Chip. The jet chip will be on backorder until the middle of next month. But I just thought I'd share with ya. I'm so excited. I'm really sure these parts are gonna wake this engine up.

Yeah it makes me kinda glad after my 94 blew up and that I could get my 93 back for the same price. So all in all I'm gonna be one happy guy when I get done with this project.

egladman, I hope you have access to a scantool and a fuel pressure gauge?

yep i've done the checking, fuel pressure is good and 0 knock reduction. But then again I wish it would warm up here so I could do some testing with some high temps.

You need the scantool and pressure gauge for AFTER you put the pulley on. Nobody (within reason) has KR with a stock pulley.

If you get KR with the pulley, you need to make sure the fuel pressure is keeping up on the top end, and if it is, you need to either get a 2.3" pulley or ported exhaust manifolds and scan again.

does living at a higher altitude make the possiblity of knock reduction less or not. I mean the air is cooler and the humidity is less here. Any feedback on this. I mean I live at 5000 ft elevation and was just wondering the effects of all this.

Air is also a LOT thinner. You are at a lot larger risk of KR and fuel system failure than an identical car at an elevation of 1000' as the air at 1000' is quite a bit more dense.
Being cooler may help, but you will still have situations with higher air and engine temps, especially with the smaller pulley and stage II.

I hope your investment works with you and not against you, but you will need exhaust work, fuel system that is up to the task.
You will also have to make sure you get the highest available octane.
I'd suggest you hold off with the chip at least until you have a high flow cat, muffler, and have done a realtime scan with the pulley to verify everything is up to snuff for the chip.

I may have this backward, but wouldn't thinner air promote a rich condition, thereby reducing the risk for detonation?
