so i basically just took rogues suggestion, as he knows a bit more than i do and it pretty much coincides with any other input so far.
it occurred to me last night that i forgot about the brakes. oops.
further input? i notice that as of right now, the 3.4 pulley has just about no supporting mods when it goes in - is that a problem?
or should i go with my original inclination and go with 3.5 pulley and see how it runs only to upgrade to 3.4 a couple of months later, after the other mods have gone in and it runs fine?
