anyways... stock castor plates... sugest that goes into your TODO list.

did he tell you that you have to use race fuel with the second tune? and is there a smaller pulley for the race tune?

Youve got some work under that hood though bro.... that can clean up good!! you cant let that beautiful blower sit in that rusty area!!!

Fixed those pics, they were silly big.

He said the second tune should be used only at the track/strip, didn't mention anything about octane. I will definitely have the performance shop check that out.

Does anyone make any engine kits for all chrome lines and hoses?

Are Koni's the way to go over Tokicos?

theres a couple kits out there for the radiator hose and vaucum lines, but its covers only.... it kinda looks ghetto when its done.. of course you can piece it together yourself if you find the individual replacement hoses... (let me know if you do... im also interested, i like my **** shiney =) )

You should run 110 with that performance tune fo sho.... get yourself a 5 gallon can of it... and bring an empty can to suck the gas outta your tank to do the swap when you go to the shop, that way they can run it street and track tune. kenne bell doesnt suggest anything over 18lbs with 91 octane... or course you can, but you would end up taking out so much timing its counter-productive.

Koni's or Tokicos.... ive asked the people on here but never got a solid answer either haha... im still running the bilsteins also

**** Twin turbos, why would u twin turbo a car thats already got a K.B thats just a waste of money, might as well buy a whole nother car, and the motors already built.

To see any more considerable power, port the heads, saw you said the intake was ported, didn't see heads, get a valve job and blower cams.

ya whats another $4,000 huh!?!

IMO its not worth the money for the potential HP (or lack thereof)

If your looking the hp.... at this point the cheapest way to get it is the headers.
