Default Where to start?

I am recieving my GXP in a couple of days. Now starts the rebuilding of the 95 SLE you guys talk alot about different subjects here. But where do I start with a stock 95? I have the money just not the experience. I will be taking a engine rebuilding class next semester but I want to have the parts lined up for it before I do this performance shift. If someone can help me along this process it would be of much help. Or post a few suggestions here so I can take a look at them.

Hello, fellow Arizonan. A lot depends on how deep you want to go. By rebuilding, do you plan to go into the motor (cam, rockers, etc.) or are you just looking to add performance upgrades externally?

Since you have a '95 L67, series one, I believe your exhaust manis require strengthening of the external welds then smoothing the interior walls.

Some additonal information will probably benefit you int he "Forced Indcution" section as well.

Anytime you are here, let me know and we will definitely meet up. I only get to Yuma once every year or so...either on my way to San Diego with the family, or for a work related visit to Yuma itself on occasion. I'd love to see both of your cars. Maybe a litel road trip to Yuma is in order one of these days for me as well.

I am not overly familiar with the work that can be done internally on the motor for a '95 series one, others will soon be here to help or you may want to just start scrolling through the Performance and Brainstorming section to see what possibilites there are for your '95 L67.

Externally, several performance items can be made or purchased to improve the motor. I really need to let the more experienced performance gurus with knowledge of your year guide you properly.

Techinfo has lots of good starting information as well for performance mods, btu you have probably already read about most of them.
