Thanks again guys.
Here are some more shots from today. A little dirty(lower half of car) but it was only 19F outside so no car wash.

My main goal right now is to get everything back to ship/shape. The little things from maintenance/tune-ups to weatherstrips.(the wind thru the doors is brutal at 65mph!)

Each month I will have a $300 or so budget to do some kind of repair/restoration. After all the stock items are fixed/upgraded, I will then look into mods for the series I L67. I have been checking and have seen that Intense Racing is mainly Series II. Are there a lot of aftermarket goodies for the Series I 94' model 3800? I hope so!

I would like to boost the drivetrain to the 300hp range or a little higher. That will be later though. The tranny will get beefed up to. Name:  transport035.gif

The final repair will be a fresh coat of black and new gold pin stripes. Maybe a set of flames? Name:  36_11_6.gif

Lots of slow and easy work over the next year.

Very good car! I love it!

It looks like someone pasted wood trim on the normally gray trim pieces, but it looks nice. From one 94 SSEi owner to another, there are not that many Series 1 mods to do out there. The things that can be done to pretty much every other similar engine like boring, porting, polishing, getting a smaller supercharger pulley, and so on, are just about what'* available. There are a few things from Series 2 engines that'll work on your car, like the fender well intake, the supercharger coupler, and a few other things.

I strongly recommend you take the belt off of the supercharger pulley and see if there'* play when you spin the pulley by itself. If you're comfortable taking things apart, one of the main things about returning the car to stock-like conditions is getting a new coupler. It will help the bearings a whole lot. In fact, in my 94 SSEi, there'* a supercharger coupler from Intense.

Pretty much everything looks absolutely amazing. Take really good care of it so that I can buy it from you in a couple hundred thousand miles.
