Good stuff, Maynard. I used it over the winter.

For the L36 guys going after these 'free' mods:

It'* really important to nail one thing down at a time. Even if you're the 6th guy to do it. We need more 'impressions' at the very least. The 95 may be more apt to respond to the LIM because of the looser restrictions in the PCM, but we need more cars to do this and post their impressions.

Knowing how much you 'feel' you got from this or that can go a long way in what we tell the next guy to do.

Damn!
You're gonna beat me to it. I should have my ported and polished LIM in next week, with any luck.
Can't wait to hear how yours goes.

I agree 100% bill. As for testing once i get the motor swap done, then i am going to hit the track and get a baseline of that motor in this car and then i will do the ported lim, and hit the track a few times, and then do the homemade HV3 and hit the track some more. I think with the 95 pcm i will have some nice gains.
