    Plenty of mods, the vents going green or blue ? I would put a blower on ur engine save some money the stroker will cost you alot more than a bolt on blower,why not go a 4.2L stroker in ur wagon with some goodies or Ls1 where there is so many off the shelf parts and easier power made for your dollar?

    Sweet Vn,good stuff on the mods! TUFF.
