Hey Guys,

Ive decided that when my EL 6 cyl hits 400,000 K's (Another 3k to go), im gonna replace the old engine, and get something with abit of punch.

Currently its got a Stage 3 Crow Cam, LPG, 2.5" Exhaust, Auto, other then that its pretty much standard.

In the next week or two it will be turboed, i have a manifold my bro made up for me, i have the turbo, and i have a turbo cam in the mail for it.

Needing ideas as far as engine, basically im looking at getting another low km EF\EL engine, go lpg injection possibly, get proper tuned turbo manifold, bigger turbo, custom cam, ported head, 3.45, and ???

Chasing ideas, basically im after some idea's of where to get a performace head from and matching cam, what to do for the bottom end etc etc. Car is sorta daily driver, but looking at something thats quick off the mark.

All input would be appreciated

And any one interested in a Stage 3 Crow Cam?

set the turbo up with the current engine as there will be some things you have not factored for.
then work out what more you need for the setup you are aiming for.

my 2 cents
