hi all
so i have a bit of money saved up and im wanting to know which mod would be best to do next?
i have vs ecotec with the getrag 5 speed, its lowered, new shocks all round, cai k&n, 2.5 exhaust, and mace insulators.
should i get a short shifter for the gearbox?---extractors?---or save up a bit more and get high ratio rockers?
i really cant decide and any input from people with these any of these mods would be great!

go a cam if it's not to much hassle, cost wont be much different to rockers but performance will be more.

ok so it sounds like a cam would be more what im after, how much do these go for?
will i have to do anything else to it (chip, injectors, fuel pump??) or can you just wack a cam i and drive away???
im still interested in the billet shifter, anyone got one? do they shift nice??

A cam seems pretty simple to install as long as you know how to get the timing right.

You might need new lifters and springs and more than likely replace the timing chain at the same time as it will be under a little more strain.

Cant see it all costing any more than $1000 if you do all the work your self.
