Btw the car has almost 200,000 miles on it, but it still runs very strong

If i were in that position id rebuild it stroked out with port/polished pi heads ( if u dont have them already) then play with mods. I got a 96 with pi heads, much better than the original heads though my motor has 95 k on it too lol

You wont see badass improvement stroking these engines.. Its just good for future power adders..

You might as well buy patriot heads because porting heads + springs + everything else is the same price as buying heads.. And the new heads are lighter

I say Suspension > Gears > Shortthrow >Clutch > Engine mods
