    Small Dilemma...

    I have been planning to mod the car this summer (heads, cam, intake, etc....) but a thought just popped into my head....would it be smarter and more cost effective to just get a new motor. the car is not gonna see the track very often ( hopefully at least once a year), it will be a street car.

    anyone have any suggestions on what to get, i.e. a crate motor, LS2, etc..., or just stick with it and build what i have already.......

    thanks for any suggestions or help in advance.......

    motor has 30~40k (rest of car has 133000).........

    been poking around and listening to what ive heard and it seems that the LQ9 block seems to be the way to go. i want this to be built right so forged is the way to go i think.......or there is the possibility of just building a 374/383........
