WOW!!! That'* is very impressive.... You need to get a real CAI or FWI on there and really get going. I know it'* just an L36, but that stock air box (gutted or not) with a K&N drop in is just too restrictive, considering what else you've done to the car.

Next mods:

FWI
L26 aluminum UIM
L26 to L36 TB adapter
1.9 rockers
LS6 valve springs
OR PR'*
ZZP UD WP pulley (currently sitting here in my garage)

Followed by Don making the first 14 second run at a track in a NA 3800 powered Bonneville, here on BC.

I am impressed
Thanks Matt... After you having all of those SC'd 3800'* You have no idea what a compliment that is to me

The Mods are simple.. We enabled the engine to breathe... It can inhale and exhale.. And there isn't a restriction in the middle... Amazing for a car on the stock EPROM/PCM with 19* timing at WOT... I have heard the GP'* are at 23-24*..

Still on the stock rockers.. I did replace the Lifters while I was in there, I had a light tick and the lifter had to go for that reason.. I used the Comp Cam OE lifters... I don't plan on spinning past 6k anyhow.. Still on the stock springs... Original timing chain...

PEM'*, Stock downpipe, Magnaflow High flow cat, stock piping, stock res and still stock muffy..

Gutted air box, with K&N... Shaved TB Shaft...

So what have we really done? In a nutshell, we gave the car a new set of lungs

Thanks for the Props Matt

TJ, no offense, bud, but you'll be hard pressed to beat an L36 with a port-matched LIM with what you have in your sig. You'll have to have ideal track conditions. All things being equal, you've got some work to do. And you know what it is. To get the most out of your HV, you need to do the LIM. To get the most out of rockers, you need to do the LIM. The L36'* weak spot is that LIM.

Marty, Thanks Bud... I think I'll stick with the Plastic intake and L36 TB for now... I can't use the LS6 springs in my application...

But a Cam has crossed my mind lately

Again, very impressive.

Those rockers do add quite a bit more power....
I doubt he'd be 'hard pressed'.

Oh man....I can't wait to get over there and lay down some Goodyear snot.

I drove it *during* it'* learning curve, and it had a very fat 2nd gear pulling ability. Those runs are very impressive indeed. But beware...those that seek absolute power...end up fragging their trans And Don, I believe yours a bit on the moooooshy side.
