Hey folks,
Well im in need of some advice here.
Now, my engine (EF I6) has done about 190,000k's now.
So im not too sure wether i want to mod this one, or throw something else in there.
What are some of your opinions?
Do you think i should throw another EF/EL I6 in, or a AU I6?
Or, even a v8?

If going the EF/EL I6 Path, which version would be best to get?

If going the AU path, how much is an I6 from an AU? VCT even?
Also, is it a easy swap?

If going the v8 path, how much am i expecting to pay for a all the parts needed?

I'd also like to know the pros/cons of all of the above, if someone doesnt mind..
Hope you guys can help me out :)
Also, keep in mind, im just after the price of parts, not for labour.
-Doof-

190 is not a lot of k's, i'm sure any mods you will do, it will handle it fine...

190,000 isnt a lot for a I6 a lot of UA's would be close to that anyways mate and a V8 conversion would be a total pain in the a***, if you want to go V8 your better of buying a car thats allready v8, my advice mod the 6 you have.

Thx for the reply guys!
Decided to keep my I6 :D
Onto modding, what kind of mods would get me into the 14 sec bracket. I dont care if its a 14.95, i still wanna be in the 14 bracket.
I know its a huge ask, but it is possible!
