I want to be on the list of updates at all times. I am willng to take this bonneville as far as possible. I originally wanted to go turbo but NA for life lol. I know with the injectors, ported rear, 2.5 dp, HV3,Ported LIM, TB, and some tuning work and some other little things that great numbers are within reach.

We will have hard numbers on the ZM throttle body and ZM LIM shortly. Be advised the seat-of-the-pants dyno on the L36 TB and the L36 LIM so far have been encouraging.

Great work, Bill. I'm anxious to hear results from the test drive.

The first test drive and a couple weeks of driving were very positive across the band on a totally stock 95 SE. Mike1995 tested the first. If jr's3800 has similar results, and scantool data to back it up, we have a sure winner for very little investment.

Agreed... Gaskets is all I really need to install this intake..

Maybe later after more research I may get a PLOG

I am actually charging 25 dollars a piece for everyone that uses my injector idea so you can just paypal me the money jr . Nah, in all seriousness, i am looking forward to see the results of this. After the injectors are done (going to do spark plugs, oil change, and o2 sensor at the same time and that will break me), then i am going to do the LIM and HV3 (hopefully around mayish).

Try the LIM first. You may not want the HV insert after that.

I'm not kidding. The LIM will wake your car up across the band.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with that statement.

Not to be rude, Mike, but the first test LIM produced a gain in power across the band. I expect the same from the second. Mike1995'* review was very clear on this. Is this the point you disagree on?

My advice was to do the LIM for much less cost, then see how he feels about that before doing the HV insert. If you read my post above, I stated "you MAY not want it".

By the wording of it, it seemed like you were saying the ported LIM could make the HV3 not needed.
Without getting into how the HV3 could be done for cheaper, I think taking a couple inches off the intake runners with a nice smooth inlet would wake the car up more than a ported LIM.

I'm not saying either of these things: That the ported LIM dosen't make more power over the entire rpm band, and that the HV3 is cheap.

Edit-Changed would to could.
