Go on down to Jim Mick Motorsports and get a stage 5 engine done up for yourself seeing as yours is now rooted.

More power. Thats the answer.

JMM here i come,

have some fun.

well, thats how alot of people see JMM working..

how many k's were on ur engine? if there is that many parts rooted, you might be able to find an exchange engine for alot less than the rebuild.
