I got a shop to rebuild the engine...
new cam, rebuilt heads, bore, a little 'better' pistons.. a lot of mild stuff that ended up adding a bit of punch... I got it towed to the shop... The mechanics going to **it himself when he finds it sitting there... but oh well I'll pick it up tomorrow after work hopefully

Long live the L27, sounds like he'* talking out his rear but if you got some good gains more power to ya... err yeah!

Not put an exhaust on there, and a chip.
