Default Input on whats next?

I have a 93 SSEi. MAF screen removed, flowmaster 80, custom intake, 180 deg. therm., jet stage 1 chip, 2.2 pulley on SC with over sized idler pulley. Can someone give me a nudge in the right direction? This is a daily driver and will not see the track, but like anyone else I would like the car to feel SC'd.

Thanks for the input. That can be done when the high flow cat is getting taken care of.
How will they compare to the already good stock ones?

they flow a bit better which gets rid of exhaust quicker and can reduce backpressure slightly.

There are two members currently working on improving the flow dynamics of the lower intake manifold. From testing on my car, the change is quite remarkable. My setup is a bit different, though. The car to watch for you would be SSEiMatt93. He'* modded almost like you with the exception that he just added a Jet Stage 2 PCM yesterday. I have one also, and love it.

Matt has a mildly ported LIM that he'* still trying to figure out (is it helping or hurting). Based partially on the LIM I ported six months ago.

I was thinking of going to the Jet Stage 2 eventually, maybe I can move that up a little sooner. I dont want to purchase parts only to invalidate them with a later mod. If I get some mild cam and valve work done later will the J Stage 2 still perform satisfactorily?
One other question, as if there havent been enough already, can a water/alcohol injection kit work well for a daily driver?

The Jet will suit you just fine with a mild or street/strip cam.

Water/Alcohol injection isn't really practical for a daily driver in my opinion.

Thanks for the direction. I will have some time to tackle a few of these mods. If I have any more questions I know where to turn.
