i'm still weighing my options. i can get a gsr long block for really cheap, but i'd want to rebuild it.

i'm pricing out a B swap and pricing out boosting the ZC. rebuilds on both, aftermark et internals on the ZC. And... it seems like for a little bit more money, i could have ALOT more power out of the ZC.

But i'm still weighing my options. i need to sit down when i get a chance and research alot of things to determine which direction i want to go in.

LoL. well jason, my build would take awhile because i'm not rolling in $$$. being a college student + tyring to fund a build = lol.

i'm new to the whole boost thing, so i gotta lot of research to do to see what all goes into it, and how to make it reliable.

like i said, still weighing my options.
