In so far as I'll tell you everything that didn't work :P

Looks like a great set up, do the cam specs allow for 1.8 rockers? Seems too high to me?
You may also want to add new injectors are a tune up on your old ones.
Be sure the pcm can handle your new flow rates.

I've talked with Y.T. about the rockers and the cam and they seem to think that I'm going to be good to go.

I forgot to add to that list that I'm sending out injectors to those guys Willwren reccomends for flow matching, but I hadn't considered larger injectors. I'm going to send an E-Mail to the GMtuners guys about it and see what he thinks. I'm sure Mr. Wren will chime in on this too.

Couple of questions ?
Where are you getting the heavy duty torque converter ?
Isn't 3.69 gear ratio a little extreme?
what size SC pulley are you running now?
and you forgot some kind of scanner for all the tuning you need to do.

Just also take note that I will be following in your foot steps with my car (but I have a much tighter budget :( ).

DOes the 95 have an M90 sc? your going to be able to run a fairly small pulley with that list :twisted: and if so, you will soon need bigger injectors. If a 95 is anything like a series 2?

95 is the Series One with the M62
