the engine is the stock 1600 DP with the weber progressive and elect. points, as far as the trans. i have no idea... stock? how can i tell? tire size at the moment is ?145 75 R15? (not sure at the moment... haha..) BUT, i have a set of yokohama's 31x10.5's i'm trying to put on... i have stock trailing arms but it seem's like there is just enough room to fit... one way to find out..!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Idea i do want to up the engine to the 87mm forged pistons and forged "H" rods... mild cam, "mild turbo"( Laughing ) and the list just goes.... one thing at a time though... Idea Question Idea so, what would be an optimal and reliable setup for the 87mm pistons, as far as the cam and crank, rod length, ?barrel shims? so on and so forth... i'm set on the 87mm strictly for the "drop in" aspect... avoiding the machine shop if i can...
