I got a 2.2 liter, and it doesn't have enough balls :) Can you give me some ideas of mods and their costs?

Thanks!

My advise, take it or leave it, concentrate on looks for now and wait until a swap is finacialy possable. you can sink all kinds of money into a 2.2 just to get to the amount of performance that a 4.3 comes off the factory floor with. check out www.lhtperformance.net

Thats your problem right there. :)

VERY TRUE:p :p :p :p


But intake, exhaust, and chip are good for a start and you will notice a difference (the other cars on the road pasting you not as fast) :rolleyes:

Umm, I think I'm going to be going more on the engine the anyone else here soon enough LOL

I'm planning on a port/polish and shave job to the head within a few months, also a custom throttle body.

I already have the Volant Intake, Catback exhaust, and a Throttle body spacer is coming soon.

I'm going to have my computer custom reflashed probably same time as the head job, I don't want that limiter!!!!

This summer, my friend and I are custom making the whole turbo manifold and everything, and at 75,000 Miles I am rebuilding the engine to handle ALL the boost the turbo is capable of....(clipped and whirled GN turbo capable of a proposed 20 PSI, with the stock stuff I will be running 8 lbs max....)

I will also have to get the whole exhaust system reworked at that time as well as a new computer program.

With the engine rebuild I am planning on SRP forged pistons, a thick head gasket to relower the compression, titanium pushrods, and an RKsport cam with STS Roller rocker lifters.....

Yes I am planning all this, it'll take me a while to get to 75,000 miles, and by that time I will ahve the money I need.....

MUAHAHAHA

With this setup I should be in the low 14's, high 13's, possible lower, I don't know, I haven't heard of anyone doing a setup like this before....

If you need any help email me and I can give you my cell phone number, I'm usually good at troubleshooting stuff.....and if you've got pics, I'll come to your house and help, anything for a fellow S-10 owner

ummm...

I picked up an LS-1-CRATE for 1000 bucks. Is it stolen, probably. With 150 horse NOS it should be ok. Tha would make you get more power. I have always wanted to have a back up motor, and put as much nitrous to a wiz banger(no offense 4 cyl. guys) and see how much it would take before it blew up. There was a guy at MILAN dragway with a 87' fiero 4 cyl with a NOS sytem. We saw him in thepit, after every run he was changingthejets. he had it in the 13's(low 13's), andhe said to usI'm goin for broke boys". He changed the jets, and did some more fiddling with the system, Pulled upto the line-ran a mid 12(!!!) and then the motor grenaded-just past the timer! We helped him push it back, and asked him how much he put through it-I sh-t my pants when he told me 250hp-through the bone stock motor!!!! He said he felt he would have run faster if the clutch wouldn't have slipped off the line-I am surprised it didnt blow apart!! He put it on te trailer, and was back nxt week with the same combo!!! It sucks GM replaced the 2.5(a way stronger 4)with that sorry ass 2.2(I dont care how fast you claim your cavalier is...lol) I guess I am getting way off topic here..I guess what I am trying to say is DO YOU HAVE A PICTURE?????!!!!!
