Newt, trust me when I say we went easy on you

Alot of people turn a cold shoulder to Rice that likes to rebadge their cars with 'Type' stickers or the like. I think part of your problem was in your presentation, nothing more. It might have been best to present the car to us as an SE in the first place.

A few small notes for you, to help you as much as us. Jet never made a chip for the hybrid 94/95 PCM'*. But alot of our members here would be very interested in the actual source of your chip for that simple reason. It'* difficult to find one for those 2 years. If Jet actually burned a prom, we want to know, because they could be asked to burn them again custom. The water pump may have been a bad idea. Our pumps are suspected of cavitation at the higher RPM'*, which reduces cooling. Going to a LARGER pulley can reduce this, and gain back some parisitic drag for a little more HP.

My suggestion is to present the car for what it actually is. And stick around while this blows over. I'm sure other people have alot more questions about your car.

Ok So I went out and removed the other *, Never thought one letter could bring so much discussion. Maybe I should just remove the SE lettering all together!!

Put anything you want on the car. Just don't try to tell the pot that the kettle isn't black You gotta be straight with us.

Hey, you're from NY. If you stick around, there'* gonna be a bit '0 fun in your neck of the woods very soon. Can't give you details yet, but I will ASAP.

I did a really quick search for manufactures with aftermarket chips, or reprogramming for the year 1994 or 1995 3.8L non supercharged bonneville, I found this. Take a look.

Superchips isn't one of our favored vendors. They've had pretty poor reviews here.

Can you give us details on your Cam and Chip? Specs and sources?

It looks sharp bro! The wing is on the border line of rice and domestic, but add'* an agressive look to it. Its nice to see someone thinking out of the box a little, especially that your new to this forum.

Yea, whatever you do, just tell the truth. There are tons of bloodhounds on this site and will hunt you down if you tell some misleading information.

Newt, your expaination was good enough for me. As for the WP pulley, put the stocker back on and replace the thermostat with a 180. Good result, no extra drag.

I believe the guy at GMTuners.com can do chips for 94/95 at a very reasonable price.
