Default Ok, tough choice here.....

Ok fellas.....I've got a decision on my hands. I've got about 600 bucks I can spend on the bonne, then I'm kinda broke for awhile. After doing some shopping, I've found I have three options.

1. Get my rockers installed by a mechanic, that'll be about $450. (Even though it'* number 1, it'* very low on my list. You'll see why)

2. Slicks. Finally found some slicks! 400 bucks shipped. I think they're brand new hoosiers, with rims. Some of you might be wondering why there'* even a debate, because I've been looking for slicks for awhile.

3. Gen V. Need I say more? I found a gen V for about 650 shipped, which is a little more than my budget is, but for a gen V, I'll stretch it a little bit. Granted, it won't be installed for awhile, because when I take the blower off, I want to I/C it, and that means waiting for more money....

So there'* the issue. If I get the blower, I'll install the rockers along with the charger and I/C in one big shot.

PS. This might be another entire thread, but what all is required to retro-fit a gen v? I think I heard throttle body, but that'* all I know. Thanks!

If you throw a Gen V on there. Go for a bigger TB or a N* TB. Itll give you better flow as I believe the Gen V has a bigger TB hooked to it anyways.
