think this stuff is worth getting? its basically the same as those silver cans called "engine restore"

this is called EXP4 and has gas additive, oil and ATF... saw them dyno before and after on some car show and they gained a few hp

Hey Ryan, PM or phone Duane about where to get a metal headgasket for really cheap, he found a company that sells them for a fraction of the price that the HKS costs. And it's strong enough to be going into his car.
Can't remember the company name, but I'm here with Allan (duane's best friend) and he says it's a really good gasket!

probably Cosmetic, their MHGs are apparantly just as good as the HKS, but alot cheaper. a bunch of the CT guys run them, and if they are good for their 500+ rwhp engines, they are good enough for mine...

Right on, you are getting the swaybars from Allan too! I met up with him and stuff yesterday, couldn't resist getting him to order me a set.
Have you seen that guy's car yet? I swear everytime he is around and I see his car, my jaw drops. It's the cleanest thing I have ever seen in my life.
But anyways, I think Cosmetic was the company... and apparently Duane and Allan can get them for a decent price. Good luck with the repairs guys! Hopefully mine isn't as extensive as I fear it will be either.

no, havent seen his car yet. hes going to bring the sway bars over when he comes to see his brother, so it saves me $30 shipping. too bad i just got eibach springs, i would have gotten those STs from him too. oh well, suspension is 75% done now just have to figure out what i want to do for chassis bracing....

Yeah he said he'd bring over yours, mine and Bob's swaybars and drop them off at his brothers. Man.... when you go to pick up your swaybars from Byron's place, ask him to take a look at Allan's car!
We went there yesterday to pull off his FCD and stuff.. it kinda looks weird because it's sitting on spare tires, and he's getting it repainted and a whole new engine set up put in, but it is still gorgeous!

haha, no... sorry man. Allan's brother's name is BYRON. He lives in Duncan, that's where Allan is storing his car.
I know that Allan said he's going to bring my swaybars over, and I am going to keep my set at Byron's until I can figure out how to get them.
I'm not sure if he's going to come to victoria or not to drop your's and Bob's sets off. I just suggested that if you have to go to Byron's to get the swaybars... ask to take a look at Al's car

I dunno where you got that shit about im reusing my head bolts!? I have ARP Head Studs that i am going to use, that i have always planned to use! And just because im not going crazy on the internals on my engine doesnt mean im not rebuilding it correctly or "everything else is stock", i have quite a few things in mind actually, i just keep this to myself.
