Read the first article on this page first:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ode=cat&cat=20

Or you may not have a motor for long. I'm not kidding, either. Age has taken it'* toll, and you need to turn the clock back first.


Every single part available for a S2 that you need to make reliable power is available for the S1 with a little searching and creativity with the exception of an intercooler, and that'* happening right now a few topics below this one.

Rather than list all the ideas, options, and sources, please tell us your goals and realistic budget (aside from the $2k you're going to need to set aside for the trans).

im looking to spend around $4000.00, i just wanna run mid to low 14'*, i already have a new tranny. i ran 15.6 with a bad fuel pressure regulator, k&n box filter, i removed the sreen from the throtle body, removed the cat, and put a wicked flow muffler on, but i;m going to redo the exhaust. i have replaced the pressure regulator. and where is the cpu located? and who programs them? i know it seems like i dont know alot about cars but i do i just dont know that much about domestics, everytime i try to look up series 1 parts nothing comes up. i work alot and dont really have alot of time to research so any help would be great, thanks

Removing the cat just killed the only advantage you have. Low-end torque. You lost it.

To gain any advantage on the 1/4 on the S1, you have to protect your low end and make the most of it. High end HP won't do it for you.

For your goals, get a cam (Crow), a custom PCM (GMtuners) burn, and a FWI (3") from INTENSE. You'll get close with about 2k spent.

Do the CAT first, then get a scantool. Scanning for KR this time of year is pointless, but you need that before you mod. After that, go after the manifolds while you wait for your cam from Aussies. I also suggest you rebuild your SC, do a mild cleanup on the inlet and outlet, and port-match your LIM runners to just UNDER the head port size to get the most of out of the cam. A 61 or 62 cam will work, the 61 will work with the stock PCM.

I hit 14.6 on street tires with no valvetrain work. But I did have a Gen3 swap at the time. I don't suggest you do that if you ever want a reliable consistent daily driver.
