Hello! I have not posted on here in a very long time. I have owned my shadow for around ten years. Hasn't been on the street since 05. It had some tranny/clutch/flywheel problems in the past. With myself at the time being a broke college student I had no time and money to mess with it. I finally got it running and plan on having it on the street this spring. I'm very excited. It is heavily modded and last ran 14.6 N/A w/stock bottom end. Since that run put in a ceramic disc with the turbo pp, fidanza flywheel, and full delrin mounts. Im hoping to hit 13s N/A. Anyone else have a quick N/A 3.0?

Kudos on the 14.5 N/A time. AFAIK, the current record on a 12v N/A P-body is 14.2.

my personal best on a 24v 3.0 was a 14.302@94mph

Any more details on what you have done to the car?

Give me a little time and I can post some picks. Will probably have to scan some old photos, lol.

Here are the mods....
Ported/polished/3 angle valve hob on heads
Ported/polished intake
Cold air w/ k&n (under battery tray)
52mm throttle body
Msd 6AL/8.5 super conductor wires/blaster 3 coil
0 gauge grounding kit
Under drive pulley
2.5 exhaust manifold back, no cat, super series flowmaster muffler
Fidanza flywheel
Ceramic disc with turbo pressure plate
All delrin mounts
bobble strut
Delrin Shifter bushings
Tower strut bar
Eibach springs
Gutted
Nitto drag radials

Think that's it

nice list of mods and a good time to boot. Not sure if you will get into the 13's as-is but being gutted sure helps the power/weight ratio. Might take some of Ed's magic on the heads, cams and a Standalone ECU (megasquirt?) to break into the 13's.

Whatcha got planned for the car?

Very cool! There aren't nearly enough quick N/A SOHC 3.0's out there. I was running 15.3N/A last year, 14.6 on a 40 shot of nitrous. My car is currently in a million pieces for a forged 10:1 winter build. I'll be shooting for 13's N/A as well but my car is almost full weight.

+1 to the unofficial record still holding at 14.2.

Thanks for the compliments. To be honest I'm ready to move on. I've had it for ten years now and have put a lot of time and money into it. I'm not going to mess with bottom end at all. Basically gonna put it on the dyno to see how my stock fuel setup flows. I would like to put a 100 shot on it and go for broke. I'm sure ill have to do some fuel mods in order to not totally destroy it right away. That's where I'm stuck. From what I remember not much I can do with a 93 3.0 motor fuel wise. I guess I could put a bigger fuel pump in and maybe a fuel pressure reg, but I don't believe there are any injectors out there that would work.

Of course I would sell for the right price, but its a little rough cosmetic wise lol.

well now that turbos have been catching on more there is some pretty good fueling solutions now, il let someone else chime in on that though.

1. Walbro 255LPH
2. Aeromotive Fuel Pressure Regulator
3. E manage blue piggy back fuel management system
4. wide band and gauge
all of this will cost about $800 to complete. kmperformance.com has a install instruction page for the E manage blue.

Additionally, 3000GT TT injectors are a drop in fit into the 3.0 12v manifold. nice upgrade for fuel (360cc vs 200cc stock). IIRC some mustang injectors also fit, opening the realm of possibilities vastly.

I thought the 3000gt injectors only worked for the 92 and older 3.0s. I do remember hearing about after market mustang injectors for the v6 would work as well.

Stock injectors? I don't want to drop crazy money since I don't plan on keeping it around. That with a decent n2o setup will probably cost over 1500. All while not adding to the value of my piece. Lol. Guess i could always part it out. Still want to put some nitrous through it though. I guess after I dyno it ill have a better understanding on my fuel needs. I'm sure its starving for some.

im sure you know this but if its starving for fuel across the rpm range an adjustable fuel pressure regulator would work perfect, and that is pretty cheap.
