In response to your edit:

Your intake setup for 'street' use is a HAI. Hot-air intake. You're not pulling cold air. My simple heatshield made a 30 difference in IAT readings. A true CAI will gain even more.

Your 'Track' setup is a disaster waiting to happen.

One little pebble..........

I'm not advocating it by any means, but I do know a few guys who do this at the track. Its an 11-16 second risk and the MAF screen may protect you once but IMO its not worth it unless your making a TON of horsepower and stretching for everything you can get.

BTW Superchargers are 200-300 used.

What you really want is a fender well intake. Hose or pipe into the hole in the fenderwell caped with a 7 or 9 inch cone filter. The fenderwell will shield the air from the heat of the engine and cone is still there to protect you.

Thanks guys for all your feedback. Now i was thinking about a chip and a pulley. What chip should i get? i was thinking the jet stage 2 chip. what size pulley should i go for? i seen most of them go down .10 of an inch. What size would be good but not blow up my motor. do they make chips for a 94 SSEi?

Do us a favor and put your model, trim, and year in your sig so we can tell what you have. If you have a series 1 engine ill defer to those guys to guide you. If you have a series II you will want to start with a 3.5 or 3.4 inch pulley. You may also want to invest in a scanner of some sort so you can tell if you start to get knock (which you will most certainly have with a smaller pulley). Also if you step down a pulley size, I highly recommend a 180 T-stat, 1 range colder plugs, and a CAI or FWI (not just a cone filter setup)

Edit, just re-read your 94 SSEi, so your series 1. 2.8 I think is the size? Bill?

Stock on his car is 2.85, going to the stock 92/93 size of 2.55 is perfect, or buy a 2.5 from www.pulleyboys.com (make sure you're looking at Series 1 pulleys).
