Numbers dont have to match, keep the stock engine in the shed somewhere.

Are you actually going to do this? Do you have the cash to attack it?

Or have you been reading the latest street machine?

Seriously, i don't mind giving advice when someone is serious, but i hate wasting time on dreamers... I've come across more dreamers than do-ers in my time so i hate s**t talking, it's a waste of everyones time.
