Thanks for the info on the injectors. Glad to hear that before I went and bought some. What should be my next step? The coil packs and chip? Or should I invest in the 1.9 rockers first. How do the 1.9 rockers perform? Is it a noticeable gain in performance for the money? Whats with the shaved throttle shafts???

BTW, I may end up making a rear header for it too. My boss and I were looking at it today and figured that we could get the exhaust flowing better if we did away with the crossver all together and had the front and rear headers meet at a y-pipe before exiting into the 2.5" "high flow" converter. Has anyone on here attempted fabricating their own exhaust with inproved results??? Just curious as to how they did it and how it turned out.

I've been hearing that 1.9 rockers may be overkill for a lightly modded car. 1.8s seem to be the current favorite.
Also, don't get rid of the catalytic, go to a high flow instead. Removing it entirely will rob you of valuable back-pressure, which will kill your low-end torque.

Anyway, welcome to the Club!
