Default Question? I want to rebuild to a series two

whats up everyone? I've got a few questions. First, I have a 1993 Bonneville SSEI or series one motor. I want to rebuild it to a series two motor. I have heard this is possible by switching the heads. Is this correct? Also, I want a different supercharger, a Jackson if possible. Question is how do I find one that will work? Also, if possible I would like to add an Intercooler. What about a cold air Intake? I want to change the muffler to a high output, and maybe some injectors. Is there anything I'm missing? All I want is a dependable everyday driver. BUT if some kid in a Honda wants to race, I want to at least be proud of the run I gave him. Don't get me wrong, stock is pretty good but It'* still stock.

ok you cannot swap the SI and the SII heads the intake and exhaust is a different configuration

the SC swap will be totally custom and its NOT worth the $$$$$ involved

There is no I/C available for the Series one and the M62...one is in the works

as for the intake...yes do it...be sure to get a heatshield

you cant outflow the muffler...the gain will be sound only...i recommend doin a highflow cat first

you cant outflow the stock injectors...i recommend getting them flow matched

look into a 2.2 SC pulley if you want some instant gains.....make sure you have that CAI on there first

you will prolly beat that Honda even tho you are stock.....torque rules

Like 1993 SLE mentions..there are many things you can do simply and low cost to improve your performance. Keep in mind that the low end torque is a transmission killer.

I'd suggest the cold air intake, search on rice pipe. smaller pulley, and maybe some other easy things.

I'm not worried about cost I plan on rebuilding the motor. My dad ownes a race shop, whom specializes in building race motor'*. I Just didn't want to bore my motor. Could I convert my motor to a series two motor? What would I need to do? My dad ownes a Junkyard also so I could get things like a computer and things I might need. Also I would like to rebuild my tranny what sould I do with this?
