Cool Need some imput people...

Well I am going to start making a list of stuff to do if/when the motor and/or trans were to ever take a shit on me.

Any ideas as to what I should maybe do?

Suggestions are welcome.

Also, are there any good motor builders this side of the midwest?

Thanks in advance.

Btw, the car will be mostly street but with a lot of track time (when i get some time to go to the track).

I consider VT the ONLY way to go. Besides DSS they are the closest and just have a killer reputation! Though I haven't tested my VT built shortblock to its limits (only went to 20 psi) I believe it should last me for a while.

teksid, schmeksid... Go with any block your heart desires. Unless you are going for atronomical power the block itself will not matter (Teksid vs WAP) As long as you don't grenade your stocker Teksid block then it will of course serve as a solid platform to build off of.

i like the trans that i have if you want something thats solid as hell look into the MMR modified TKO's also make sure when u r buying a trans to look at the gear ratio's before purchasing...a t56 might sound cool in a sn95 but it might not be what your looking for...but then again you have a blower so it might be different in your consideration....

i recently did a shit load of research on the trans matter cuz of what happened to mine....all i have to say is t45 suck ass and dont be surprised when they break...

as for motor VT!!! they will get mine whenever my motor goes..

Mikey, have you always had a blower on your car? I thought you bought it N/A.
