Now I know this is a question that probably has come up all the time

2000 ssei 136k miles is really a good idea to start modding? is it worth the money?

I was considering sellin my car and maybe getting another car and start modding with less miles

If the engine and trans are still in good shape it should be fine. If not, sell it and find a more solid engine.

Yeah thats one thing about the 3800, its like the Honda of american motors. As long as you keep the oil changed and some other regular maintenance your engine should last you for quite some time.

And that car is really fast stock. you are looking around 5.5 to 5.7 seconds 0-60 with the Z from what I can tell. I was around 1 second faster 0-60 in my Mercedes Benz C32 AMG which was a V6 supercharged and highly moded. 403HP at the Crank and 338.6 Rear wheel horse power. I dyno it on a dynojet right before I sold it in May.

Keep the mods coming to beat the Z IMHO, Our Bonnevilles are much heaver cars.

because i am new to the forum and owning an SSEi. What is the fastest 0-60 on this forum that anyone has heard of? Are there any SSEi in the 5'* 0-60?

Look at your list of mods and notice you don't have a cam or rockers... you are really getting that kind of push with those mods?

According to my Aeroforce scan gauge I am. The best run'* have been when the outside air temperature is in the 50'*.
