Look at jr's3800. He'* reached a significant level of performance by simply modifying stock parts. He has no power-adders whatsoever, but that car SCOOTS.

As does our 94 SSE. Even Don (jrs3800) drove it, and says it'* a factory freak.

But I think the L27 coupled with the 3.06 trans is the REAL reason why it'* quicker than he expected.

Yours is a dog because of your gear ratio I bet.

I don't own a Bonne, but I'm seeking n/a power with malice of forethought, if not quite vengeance... :P

Drifty, post us a picture (or transcript) of your RPO codes, so we can see your gearing and suspension...
