    Might consider a Lentec Valve body to firm up shifts and allow you to manual shift, it will help the new transmission last. A slightly higher stall would get you out of the hole quicker. If you still have the stock cats they are a restriction like the resonator. 94 to 95 blowers are a better option in the future should you start looking for more power. Bigger TB and Maf would be an improvement. Buy a QH chip for the computer and you can start tuning for improvements. All it takes with these cars is elbow grease and a credit card. As for the squeaks it could be almost anything under the front end including loose bolts that hold the K member to the frame

    Welcome and congratulatins...

    When you get a chance post some pictures up.

    I would recommend that before you start adding parts to making your SC more powerful, that you upgrade the exhaust system on her... Like kenewagner stated, the exhaust is very restrictive so if you started adding parts to the car, you would just be puttting more stress on your head gaskets and that is the last thing u need.

    yeah I got rid of the renator and had a true Y put in its place and a set of single chamber race mufflers put on.Its alil loud for my taste put I can tell it freed up alot of back pressure,lost alil torque but makes it up in the mid-top end nicely.It spun too much out the whole anyway,now im just waiting for my aftermarket intercooler to come in!!also its a 93 so what size injectors are in this??

    Hhmmm I am not sure how you post pictures. If I wasn't as tired as I am right now, I would use the search function. Maybe if I have more energy over the weekend I will try to seach it in the forum and let you know.

    I would put my money on the lower ball joints being you squeak problem. I had noisy ball joints for only about a week and then one day when pulling out of the driveway in my '95 right before I pulled onto the pavement BAM!! The ball joint on the drivers side seperated on me. I was so freakin pissed until I realized that in about 2 miles I would have been going about 75mph on the highway! After that I was soooo freaking thankful that it happend in the driveway

    Good news on finding the problem. They aren't very difficult to change. I had to do mine at the end of the driveway since the car couldn't move.
