I'm almost at the limits of my stock block, but I've been considering doing a stroker build with forged internals. That would allow me to run more boost and I'd probably add meth at that point and ADM's fuel system upgrade. The problem I currently have is finding the money for all this stuff.

well that is a good thing.. least you are limited by your block.. if I want 4diget hp numbers I could.. thats the scary part.

dont get me started on money... getting close to surpassing the car for heavens sake. Plus now I have Stated Value Insurance, so if anything happens to the car I am well taken care of, but that shit aint cheap either.

..F-1, F-2, F-3... who's counting.... Looks like there may be a cog in your future.

I was with GMAC.. they said, oh, new engine.. ok, your off our policy. After trying to convince them otherwise they put me in touch with Progressive.

So I had an Appraiser come out and look my car over, take recipts, etc and do a write up. I then forwarded that over to Progressive and they gave me an insurance policy for the value of the appraisal.

My insurance went up about 400 bucks every 6months. But I think it is worth it.
