assuming what was mentioned above was not enough (however if you do all the above you are getting close to the power of a 2000 SSEi, which you may want to trade this car for but I wont touch that subject).... I guess you could always throw a turbo in there as well. Nothin like hearing a base model bonneville with a turbo.

Maybe close to the HORSEpower of a 96-2003 SSEi, but not in the same torque realm. And the power and torque will be delivered at a non-flat higher rpm.

Don't go by the conclusion that you can match an SSEi. Take a good look at it from this perspective. It may suit you better to upgrade CARS now, rather than go with the expense you're talking about. It'* all in what you want.

Bill is right, if you really want power:

If you dont want to change car, the best bet is to turbo it. 100% sure people around you will when youll hit it.


or buy an SSEi. and mod it.

If you do decide to turbo it, then you will want PEM'* or custom made hdeaders. The headers that are available for the supercharged bonnies have large primaries for better flow but for a turbo you would want smaller ones to increase velocity and heat.

That kit has been in development a LONG time. Count on transmission problems in the very near future.

You could do a full L67 swap for the same price, as you must provide all the other parts needed for the swap.

By the time you buy all that, you could sell your car outright, and put the extra cash towards an SSEi.

I believe that there are 4-5 people that are running it you can contact them but you will want to have them build your transmission while at it so you will not break some thing later. Also you will be running higher compression over the L67.

The other alternative for this is swap the full top end for a supercharger

The full top end would also have to include the heads. Now you're talking even MORE money. A full drivetrain (engine, trans, wiring harness, pcm) is cheaper, and selling your car and buying an SSEi is the cheapest alternative overall.
