If it doesn't pull like it used to do you even know what's wrong with it? A new engine can be quite the expense.

Could be as simple as plugs or wires, new cap and rotor.

is your shop the one thats tuning a 3s-gte on chrome? hows that workin out?

to the OP .. check your plugs, piping connections, couplers before you go and do a swap .. haha i thought i F'd something up in the summer when i wasnt boosting properly and it turned out a pipe poped out of a coupler on one side (backside where i couldnt see)
