engine mods

About to do a head gasket project as well as replace the belts, water pump etc. Since I'll be doing engine work anyways, why not do some engine mods, bigger fuel injectors, headers etc. Does anyone have any ideas of some good ideas, not trying to spend an arm and a foot but would like to improve the performance in my car

Re: engine mods

Once upon a time the word drifter evoked thoughts of a cowboy in a movie who slept under the stars, killed bad guys and were generaly standup guys.

Not sure how much pizazz you can gain without telling the computer to shut up n drive first.
But things like drawing in air more efficiently like obtaining a K&N filter can't hurt. Maybe a lower temp racing thermostat will help you reach your most efficient horsepower sooner. Good consistant spark plugs like ngk, wires and good distributor cap can help.
Cool factor stuff like a Type R oil cap, refreshed valve cover, silicone hoses, and little tweaks like that don't add horsies under the hood, but give you confidence boost. That's important.

It don't matter how much a fishing rod n reel costs. It's how you use it that matters.

Re: engine mods

what do you need bigger fuel injectors for? this isn't carburetion..... you can just throw bigger injectors on there and pick up power. it doesn't work that way.

slow down and read a book on basic engine principles before you go wasting your money.

Re: engine mods

^^ Yeah it's kinda humorous that a lot of folks forget that modern cars differ from the 68 models.
Back then you drilled bigger holes, slapped in stronger parts and got going. My first hot rod, a 66 mustang had 1 vacuum line. Points on the dizzy and zero computer tech. Straight 6 cylinder. You could slap a Barry Grant two barrel on the stock intake and imediately noticed a difference.

Todays cars are electronically controled and therefore need to be thought out more in order to see a difference.
