Id be happy with that. I'm hoping for noticeable gains with all thats being done and the amount of money I spent. Regardless i will have a fresh engine and thats worth what I spent regardless. i looked into purchasing a long block to have put in and that would have actually cost more with the install price.
The question that I have is after all that work what will your insurance company value a fourteen year old vehicle if some A-hole hits and totals your vehicle?
Are you going to obtain some sort of special insurance coverage?
