Thanks for the information that's what I needed to know. As far as it being worth it? It's very worth it, I can have a 3.0L for under $600 it will probaly put down 210rwhp. With some cams, intake manifold swap and a tune I can maybe get 245rwhp. That's good enough for me. I'm going to give this a shot this winter, thanks again for the info.
