What is the biggest attraction for aftermarket? Intake, exhaust, headers, ported/polished heads? I build a lot of custom parts for my caprice's and other project cars. I do my own in house porting and polishing as well as assembly and fabircation. I was already toying with the idea of new body parts but here in chicago, fiberglass bumpers on an everyday driver is not a good idea. I would have to say the first place to start would be a bigger air/oil intercooler. Any suggestions?

for this car, ECU

that alone would get these cars way more power than bolt ons, as for heads, I would have to see how open the one they are using alreay is

No question about it. Raise the rev limit and watch my smoke! LOL!

Third vote for ECU.

I like the intercooler idea as well though. But first, I'd like to see a reflash.

Northern burbs....Vernon hills / Mundelein area.

ECU's I can do if someone points me to the correct software. Last time I did programming I was working through LT1 edit with 94-97 LT1 and LT4 motors. When did they switch from PCM's to ECU's ?

still think a perfect system would be like tuner toys where you can adjust boost by preset amounts and octane usage for the peeps that can get 100+

limited slip is avail from quaife you have to call and ask by model. But after some serious homework we were able to pry it out of them. Thanks to scooter at the dealer steering me in the right direction.

why would you import it? You can buy quaife's here. If it's the f25, the list price is about 1500. Go to www.quaifeusa.com and scroll through the application chart. I hope it's just the f25!

Can we get some comfirmation!?!?

Quaife has no reason to stock it in the USA and that's why you have to import it.
BTDT. I have already done one ECOTEC swap on an S series Saturn that included the F25 6 speed gear kit and LSD. It took months to get the kit here and only 1 day to install it. Quaife USA said they couldn't get it so I ordered it direct from Quaife Uk. The stock 5 speed manual trans in the L100 is the F25 and always has been. We found a totaled L100 at an auction and did the complete swap with the whole package.
