yah, looks like i'm going to have to stick with the sse and its slow acceleration for the time being though.

So i'm still looking for ways to increase it'* pickup

If I just wanted a little power every once in a while, would NOS be ok on my engine if I'm not using it extensively.

Here'* what I'm doing to increase the performance of my Series 1 3800.

https://www.gmforum.com/performance-brainstorming-tuning-96/l27-heads-rockers-3-8-bolts-289967/page3/

The engine will finally be put back together tonight so I'll be able to gauge how much of a difference all of this porting made. My best guess is that the improvement will be huge given my other mods, but we shall see.
