Built engine is a must dude. Jeff, My, Erics and now your car needs to finally have a FULLY built engine.

i have been tossin that one around! i want to build an engine for the fact that i want to hit over 350 RWHP. but at the same time it would be cheaper to keep a factory engine cause if i blow it just grab another good engine and throw it in V.S. paying to have another engine built.








i shouldnt be a ***** and just go for it..........

i made this thread after i took my sleep meds

i already have an engine being built, but its a OEM blueprinted and balanced build. once i have that in the car, i will find a good 1.8 short block and get it forged up.

Don't get Corbeau seats. Mine lasted less then a year before they were ripping, and after 16 months they had faded really bad. The sliding mounting brackets also mounted the seats too far away from the transmission tunnel, so the door hit the seats and the tonneau cover bolts on the side. I paid $1200 for the set, and in 3 years sold them for $100....
