I have also chosen to examine it myself - from what I’ve seen, the SS38i has plenty of room for improvement, especially in terms of comfort and economy.
Edit: The SS38i trim you sent us has a trim year of 1995, even though the model year is 1992, which explains why it has a six-speed gearbox. Also, the combination of a very aggressive cam profile and a very rich fuel mixture makes it very inefficient. Worst of all, it looks unfinished. And regarding the braking issues, it’s because of an overly soft brake pad setting and no cooling for the brake discs themselves.
On closer inspection, the SOHC 3v V8 engine in the SS38 actually has a maximum potential displacement of 5502 cc, so I’ll create two different engine tunes for it: one with the original displacement of 3788 cc, and one with the engine bored and stroked to the absolute limit.
