    i think during next year, the next mod/project is, getting another motor, getting it rebuilt and then getting a supercharger :), itll probably take me all year but itll be worth it :)

    did not get far in saving.. the motor died last nite, pulled up set of lights, it was running rough as, dropped a cylinder, and makes some weird metalic noises, gonna get a low km v6 motor, put my heads on it (if they are still ok) and then get a cam and chip package.. its gonna take some time coz im pretty much broke :S

    that sucks dude! do you think the head work was worth it? i was thinking of getting mine done on my vs. Was it 400 bucks? thats not overly expensive for some thing like that is it?

    ah well was sorta expecting it, the head work, was a heap more responsive and a fair increase in power, i hope the heads are fine so i can bolt to the new motor :), and 400 bux got the ehads shaved, ported and polished, too me that was a reasonable price.
