Are you getting in on this group buy or are you talking in the future?

New valves I would say is on a necessity basis. If they're not burnt, don't bother unless you have money to burn. Springs and retainers fall more under the "always a good idea but not always necessary" category. How many miles are on your engine?

It'd be interesting to see what gains you get on yours. Yours being a '92 will actually get more gains from this mod than the 93+. This is because 93+ was blessed with roller fulcrum rockers (lower friction) which the '92'* did not get. These upgraded rockers are full roller. So while we'll both benefit from the lower friction, yours will make a bigger jump. Incentive anyone? haha

I want in on the second one too. How should we do this, should we make a new post or what, and would we have to hand over the money to you dr. jay or would our word or maybe some paper proof be enough. Now that i see im not the only one that is on the "ill have the money in a couple of months" list it might be easier for people like me to get these a little sooner than expected. So how do we do this, who is organising this whole thing. Ill have the money in about a month if i have to get it that soon to get the next group buy going

Well I'm still waiting on a final reply and after this deal I'll negotiate further deals with lesser numbers. I figured after I know what they are willing to do we could start another thread offering the details.

At the moment for the most part I have been the one organizing this, but if you felt inclinded you could bring people together and let me know when you're all ready.

As far as payment I'm suspecting one of two ways. One is that everyone sends a paypal to my account along with their address, and I forward that to the company in one lump sum. The other way is for everyone to send their own payment and info within the same day directly to the company. The reason I suspect he may prefer a large payment is because accepting individual payments cost more in service fees through paypal, and I'm not sure how much of a penny pincher they are. I'll push for individual payments though, as there is less chance for error that way. Again, I'll know more soon.
