alright, thanks for the suggestions. and actually, I do alot of welding fabricating ect, and have engine building experience. just have never dealt with a boosted application. I do infact have a connection at an engine shop I used to work for so I can get all parts at cost, and my dad is a part time machinist with all his own equipment. but I have decided for now to keep it stock until I figure out exactly what I'm going to do as far as my show truck and this car goes. I can only afford to insure one, and I hate trailer queens. but I dunno we'll see.
