What else to do (L36) while swapping cam and heads? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

Out of curiosity, what are the reasons for this? (not looking to argue or anything just curious) Mainly just because I can't think of any reasons that make sense to me other than planning a turbo in the future.

Short-term reason is to play it safe...I don't want to stick myself with a knock-monster (or the requirement to run higher-octane fuel n/a)

Long-term reason is to keep open the possibility--however remote--to try out a ZZP SS M90 kit.

This is a DD and not a track-beast, so I'm going with baby steps!
