exhaust (including headers), intake manifold, cam shaft, etc. there is a ton of stuff you can do to make that car faster. do yourself a favor and get a Summit or Jeg's catalog. by the way, what year is the car??????

READ his thread. He doesn't OWN a car. He's just WANTING one. Essentially this is another time waster of a thread because he'll probably end up with a five year old Kia.

Don't be too hard on yourself, I'm pretty sure you would have eventually.

Man after my own heart How about an LS1 swap? I'm thinking of doing that in the spring when I take mine out of storage.

Storage? Is that the official name for the Hot Wheels display rack at K-Mart?

No, it's in storage right now on his hard drive and in his sig. As soon as he can figure out how the matter-re-materializer works, he'll zap that sucker back into existence.

If he had a picture of an LS1 also, then he could do the swap right away.

Not that we cared in the first place, but he cant seem to prove anything he says. The vaccum theory, why a 3000GT is better than an MR2, Neon, SRT-4, Integra, etc. etc. And now this.
