Hmmm 17" wheels.

If you don't have the money to buy ultra-lightweight ones, then they slow down initial acceleration so much. Yeah, thay look exxcellent on your car, and yes I still use my 17's, but when these tires/wheels die, I'm going back to my steelies.

Other than that, fuel rail for an N/A motor.

You still have not adjusted the gears at the track yet?? Those gears are not designed to gain power, its designed to adjust the powerband, wherever you want most of your power at.. Adjusting it at the track could proably help you lower your 0-60ft times and also as well as 1/8 mile times.

If you have already tried it at the track.. well forget about my post.. hehe

cause you have stock cam gears....dork!

thats why "stock", they arent adjustable..no need! :D
you mean stock cams, right???

the only reason i havent adjusted them at the track is because they are a pita to adjust... sam, i guess having your "tool" would help, but in total, i would have to mess with 12 screws... ive also been hesitant to mess with them at the track cause they gave me no gains on the dyno... at any setting other than stock i lost hp...

perhaps after the idrc event, i will try some track tuning... how does +2, -1 sound???

What do you think you paid the most for and got the least gains from.....
Jet V-Force Control Module. I tried two different units and my "check engine light" keeps coming on while driving slow in traffic and after a had acceleration. It cost me about $239.00. After all the headaches, I return it and got a cat-back system.

Not much of a mod, but when I first bought my 94 S off from my friend for $2,500.00 it had no exhaust... So I was stupid and went to Napa and ordered a factory exhaust for $576.00 bucks. Complete waste of money, especially when I could of bought an aftermarket one for $200.00 less... I'm a stupid bastard.

Well, you have vafc, so theres actually alot of adjusting to do too. I'm not sure how +2, -1 would work, but thats a good setting to try out, every engine is different. Yeah 12 screws is going to be a pain in the ass.. But if you got the time, i say do it. Work on the exhaust side first, cause i have seen people getting better performance with just adjusting exhaust side with stock cams.

My friend bought that Venom 400 control module for his 95 Si lude. DID ABSOLUTLY NOTHING, at the track his times were exactly the same for the first few runs. He turned it off, and ran the same times. It cost him like 350 or something. TOTAL WASTE in my opinion.

My random technology cat... I paid 250.00 bucks for it and waited almost 2 months to get it, when in the end I should have just got a $40.00 test-pipe like I did. It sounds better, more power, and although yes I may not pass emissions, it is well worth $40.00.
