My current motor was very poorly taken care of by it's original owner(s) and is on it's last legs already. If I destroy it I have no choice but to do a full rebuild.

99 head plus 2.0L stroker kit would be the order of the day.

heck you dont even need to turbo it before you blow it. It just seems like a waste of time to turbo the system and then to blow it up purposefully. life we be easy to do it both at the same time.

I've never blown a motor before, it sounds like something I should do before I die. :(

Besides, theres alot of effort and tuning you put into your car after you turbo. Seems like a waste of alot of time to do that then blow it.

plus when you break down in front of a car dealer with billowing clouds of white smoke, people tend to point and laugh. Or so I hear.

Well, that's the thing. I want to try my hand at ECU tuning myself, so I am turning a motor I know is on it's way out already. I am not about to do my first street tune on a brand new motor.
