Speed seems right, 1.6 rr, a bigger throttle body, lose the flowmasters cause they suck, and a set of sticky tired and u should be gpod

I have seen people remove it and gain only a tenth. Here are dyno results from EWP. Drivetrain Modifications #14

So looks the census is;
Rockers 1.6 (1.7 with stock cam) with Springs
Cut Out = to take out the restrictive chokemaster
Electric Water Pump
LCA
Yank 3600
SFC
Pulleys
Guess I'll start in that order and see where it takes me. Thanks for all the input. I'll keep you all posted on tracks time when I hit the strip come early April.

I'm no pro, but I think the yank 3600 is too big. I was suggested to pick up the yank 2800 which I did. It's been sitting in the garage for a year but I'm hoping to get it in during the next 2 weeks since I'm dropping engine.

That may be the last thing I do. I already have a cheap 2800 stall that seems to work OK. Everyone swears by the Yank 3600 for these cars, and after take off, even in an auto with 3.73 gears, you never see less than 4000 RPM. Down the road after I get everything else I want and I have some extra money I'm going to give it a try and see what the difference is.

The 2800 is not enough.

I agree, I have a 2800 in my other stock engine Firebird and I can't even tell it's there.

I agree.

For anyone SERIOUS about running 12's with just basic bolt-ons......I'd want a bit more than 2800 stall.

I dnt see why u would need a stall to run high 12s. I ran a 13.2 forgot speed and i cut a 2.1 60 foot with old street tires. If u got 1.6 rockers and a bigger throttle body i see no reason why u cant get in the high 12s. When i ran my 13.2 i was untuned with stock 3.43 gearing and stall, full exhaust (pacesetter longtubes and y pipe, magnaflow high flow cat, slp catback), 1.6 stamped rockers, tb byepass, 58mm tb and opened intake for 58mm tb, 30 pound injectors, and shitty old street tires to go 13.2.

How streetable is that Yank 3600. I drive my car alot. From what I have been reading on that converter seems it is awesome for these cars and I'm starting to think that should be the first thing I do on my list. After all I do plan on a CC503 cam in the future and some head work. I just always had the goal of 12s with bolt ons since I got the car and I truly want to accomplish it for bragging rights and proof to my friends. Maybe I can sell my Road Runner 2800 on ebay to recover some of the cost of the pricey Yank.

Don't discount some light weight tires and rims too. You can shed a lot of rotating mass doing that.

In all reality a converter should be last on ur list to put in ur car. U build the converter to ur motor not vise versa. For me i sent circle d my dyno sheet and they built me a converter off of my sheet

The Yank SS 3600 is very streetable and the LT1 loves it. I've ran mine for the last 8 years with just bolt-ons. Add a tranny cooler also.

Yea I ran a 4000 circle D with my LE2 setup, similar cam wise to the 503. Had great street manners
