Hey everyone, I just purchased a 95 Riv. 31000 Original Miles, super clean car. I have been looking around on the site a bit, and wonder what I can get away with on the street as far as reliable perfomance and power. I am learning that there is a bit of difference between the Series 1 and Series 2 3800's, but how do I tell for sure what I can and can't do to this Series 1 engine? What kind of useful things do I need to purchase, or do, to get me going in the right direction as far as making a little bit more power. I gather I need a scanner, but which one. I have read alot about the 3.4" Underdrive pulley, and cooler stats, and plugs, I already installed a custom made exhaust with some wicked sounding Flowmaster 40's. I made a cold air scoop that brings in fresh cool air from below the front facia, and prefilters the air before it enters my gutted air box. I drive this car on a daily basis, it is going to be lowered an inch with Bilstein stuts, I am running 17" American Racing Dale Jr wheels, rear spoiler, and medium tinted glass. I have the Maroon on Maroon color combo. Car looks good, but needs more go fast goodness.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.
