    Mileage on the motor??

    Motor mounts...are a pain in the ass to replace. Nice to have though. Probably not needed at this point in your mod list.
    If you have a strut tower brace, remove it before finishing the mount install. I cracked an intake with my Prothane mounts since they lift the motor just a touch.

    i'll turn over 65k this week, it's just that i've heard the headers will bang the floorboard sometimes w/o motor mounts and while i have access to all the tools i want i figured i'd do it.

    what springs and rods should i get with it... should i get them off texas speed?

    Stock length rods right?

    Do i need to get the basic camshaft bolt and gasket kit with it on the site?

    Tools or not...Pain.

    65K miles. Oil pump would be a good idea.

    Always nice to have new bolts. Crank bolt is 100% needed.


    Prothane motor mounts from Thunder.

    The general info i'm gathering is the vrx5 might be too much for a daily driver if i still want a good under the curve power band... which is what i love about my car... any cams ya'll reccommend that i would like more? Mr. Luos what do you think?


    Here are the mods i'm planning-
    Lt's (already ordered race pacestters and ory)
    Lid (i can't get a good reccomendation on one that doesn't rub so i'm gonna go mti or slp)
    Ported TB (bought my buddies for $40)
    Cutout (got it)
    Engine mounts (i think i'll need em)
    Cam- i'm thinkin real hard about which one... i don't know which one i want

    Basically all that I have done to the car are lid, long tubes (kooks), true dual exhaust, and a tune. I still even have a few free mods that need to be done (tearing out the AIR pump today). It is a solid DD cam as long as you get a good tune. You could even get a tamer cam then mine since I have the 112 lsa.

    I like the cams from Vengeance, but the TSP 228R is a solid cam as is there 224 if you want something milder. I just prefered to have a little more on my exhaust side of the cam instead of running a symmetrical cam like the 228.

    For springs I am using the Patriot Dual Golds. Good cheap spring with all the little bits you need and they are a steal about 255, and I feel a little better running a dual spring in my DD.

    Pushrods are a debate, I run the stockers, but I know many people recommend to get hardened.

    I would see if you can back out of the COMP's.
    They have had issues with them breaking over the last 2 years.

    Some will say it was a bad batch, some will still use them. Start failing at the rate they did...and I refuse to use them.
