Hector, is there a website where we can check out the turbo that you will be using?

I started doing this for many of the same reasons you have and I have spent 3 years now researching this engine and car and the "big picture". The engine is made in a some what sloppy manner so once any of the engines put out by GM are modified they have a greater chance of problems but the series 2 that I have has been abused to the enth degree and the heads never warped the gaskets never went and I mostly spun bearings and blew transaxles. So found the transaxle solution and the rest is also available. I tried the cheap rout and you can get away with it but in the end it pays to spend the money up front. bla bla bla

So buy a CSC and start off mild stock then go out buy the rebuild parts and rebuild a cheap core then turn up the power until you blow the stock engine LOL. You will be surprised how long it lasts. The point is this 6 can put out more than enough hp for the average street racer.

If you want tunable easy torque and power the v8 can be done and smoged in all states. It is more expensive but it is built by a pro. Everything is made perfect and professionally fabricated. $15000.00 with a sc is a awesome deal for this kind of service. BUT it depends on your needs.

I also offer Rwd conversions...Basically as I have said before I connect you with the builder and I sink my time and money and so does the builder. In the end you are only paying for basic materials and his time. I am waiting for the guy who wants the first RWD 92-99 Bonneville with 1000HP. That would be a fun project.


I can go on forever so if you really want to talk performance call me. 559-709-4127.
Ty
Thank you for your imput on all of this. I'm a stage one type of guy,and am waitting on a 25,000 dollar settlement(still in the works). when that happens I may upgrade both of my 3800 II cars. With 60 to 80 extra hp on an SE; I could blow the doors off almost anyone!

I'm considering adding either a water/alcohol or a Zex Dry Nitrous: 75 shot system. Without any modifications to my engine ('95 3800 Series II N/A), which one would be better in terms of HP and safer? Is there a parts list or system for each type already available? I see some of you have already done this. Are they custom made? Is this someting that I can do? What are the advantages/disadvantages of eacy system?

there are at least three places on the net that I know of that can hook you up with the nitrous: GP store, Domestic performance, and I think ZZP. Go to the links section and see what they have.

I built my own custom water/alcohol injection system last year. Yes, it works, yes it increases boost and performance, but no, it'* not worth it. Too many dangers. I'm removing it this spring. An intercooler is a much safer option for the SC cars, and a reasonable NOS shot is safer.

The problem with NOS is that you get 'gas greedy' really quick, and want to raise the shots. You have to prevent that from happening.

Not really... I just have turbos laying around, basically we do our best to flow match it to the 3.8L engine but trial and error will give us the best results. Because it also depends upon the transmission gearing, stall converter speed, and more. It'* not just bolt and expect it to improve, there is alot involved.


crod101 - Basically the Zex kit is a good way to go since it has a built in computer which will save you some headaches. It will not turn on until you are at WOT and will adjust the pressure in the line to compensate for the bottle pressure and monitor the fuel from the computer. Other nitrous kits just "hit" the engine hard, Zex kits are progressive so they start slow and come on full after a second in order not to jolt and damage the engine/drivetrain from a sudden increase in power. Cheapest prices for Zex kit are off eBay since they fight alot to sell them. They are practically at cost for the sellers. I will be adding nitrous kits to the Bonneville Store soon, (hopefully this week) with very reasonable prices and all the accessories as well.

Thanks Hector. So basically I can add do it now without any engine work. What about spark plug and the gaps. I heard that the gap needs to be smaller. Is the Zex-82011 the correct part?

Do the smaller gap spark plugs affect the normal driving idle conditions (not WOT)? Is Nitrous really worth the cost and the trouble for normal driving? Is the 3 minute capacity tank worth having? How do I refill the tank? Is it expensive? Is there a way to increase the capacity with bigger tanks or multiple tanks?
