How much have you done with Speed Density?

I have a 94 and am ready to start modding it. How much can you do and keep the speed density?

Anybody have personal experience with how much they were able to get away with without switching to mass air?

I would like to put a good set of aluminum heads and 1.7 rockers with the stock cam, good exhaust, elec. fan and pulleys with a big K&N code filter, adj. FPR. Anyone been able to do this much and keep the stock speed density (no chip)?

How much power can you get out of a 1G Lightning with these mods?

Thanks for sharing your experiences.....

As far is HP is concerned... I have no clue... But it chould run low 14s to high 13s with that setup.

Yes you can still keep it speed density like that... you can even throw in a cam as long as it has a 114 degree lobe separation.

I have seen as high as 600 hp on the stock computer.

With the right motor combo and a good converter and rear end/tires you should be able to go mid 13's on speed density.

Thanks. Anybody on here have a fast 1G that retains speed density? What all have you done to it?

Mine may not be all that fast, but it is certainly one that "everyone" says SHOULD be mass air, but is still speed density. I run a single turbo setup with the stock computer and with 19s and stock everything it ran [email protected] on street tires. I've since put in 30s and an eec tuner so I could run more boost safely. There really is no reason to convert unless you want to use a non SD friendly cam. You'll probably have more trouble tuning the mass air than you would just leaving it SD since the conversions have never been perfected. Either way you decide to go, Good Luck.

That's excatly why I wanted to know how far you can go with SD. Everyone I know who has converted has driveability issues.

Thanks for the input. Anyone else?

You can go 11's on SD. Just build the correct combo and get a custom speed density cam. I have gone 7.79 in the 1/8 mile which equates to a 12.0 in the 1/4 with just a 150 shot and speed density.
