I've mentioned this at least once in this thread. Jet doesn't offer a 92 SSEi chip. You need to call them and give them the code off your PCM.

I will use google, I will use google, I will use google.....


And read this:

Same thing on yours for the M62.

Ever considered some suspension work? New performance endlinks will tighten up your 12 year old car. stiffer springs for less weight jacking.

Swapping a 94/5 SC/TB will give you more power, but require a AFC to calibrate the fuel. (actually shouldn't it adjust after a while anyways).

Forget the oil cooler. You already have one that'* fully capable.

Forget the B&M. If you chip, it'll do the same thing.

Chip? Call Jet.

Plugs? I've never run autolites, but they're good. If in doubt, run NGK TR-55'*.
I keep forgetting you guys get a shifting benefit from the chip and a stock oil cooler in the rad... cause I don't :P

as for venting the hood... I dunno if your guys'* hood is similar to mine but the hood itself is sealed at the back, it'* just a rubber seal that goes along the back edge.. I'm pretty sure willrens is already gone ... you can take it further by cutting off that lip the rubber sits on ... and go even further by cutting out the back of the hood that hangs down a little on the small "bump" your hood has. I don't know how pronouced the hood "bump" is for you guys .. but on my delta88 with some trimming I should have the equivilant of a 2inch x 14 or so inch Cowl.

the venting helps a couple ways... it'll help get all that nasty hot air out of the engine bay... and at high speeds theres alot of air rushing into the engine bay... if it has a problem getting out (sealed back of hood for instance) it'll create an air pocket and try to lift the nose of the car (willren mentioned somewhere else about his nose getting alil floaty around 150mph... additional hood venting would help that)

like I said above... I'm kinda going off an older car with a relatively different body style.. so some of my "advice" might be a little out to lunch ... sorry :(

EDIT: oh I should mention the 1 downside of venting the back of the hood... with your HVAC system.. the air intake vents are at the back of the hood and it'll pull in the hot engine air ... this is one of if not the reason the back of the hood is sealed from the factory

I ran with my seal removed for some time, until I noticed any smell from under the hood would migrate into the car. I'll run like that at the track on a hot day, but it'* a serious health risk for everyday driving.

personally I'd like to know about any "odd smells" comin outta my engine bay... cause that usually means somethings wrong! I do understand though if you've just got new coating on the exhuast or spilled a lil oil during a change or top up... etc etc ... those smells would kinda suck... but on a normal basis I start smellin something weird and comin from under the hood I'm out and checking...

Imagine the donut seal on your downpipe leaking. All that exhaust gas would come right into the car.

I'll keep the seal.

Thanks for the replies ! The seal sounds interesting but it'* a compromise I'm not willing to make. I mean this is my daily driver not a 10 sec. Goat right ?
I'm mainly interested in mods that keep the daily driveability intact. Again,
I want to go fast with the AC on and a cup off coffee in the console. That'* what Bonnies are all about right ?
