Tips and advice from our Community :
1- Make a complete list of every single mod your going to need ( including OEM Gaskets / Bearings / Cam Seats / Etc.. )
2- Try to order most of the parts that you need by yourself directly from the manufactorer ( some mods such as Pistons/Rods/Studs don't have that great of a discount margin on them ) so you won't be saving that much from buying them from a vendor .
3- DO YOUR RESEARCH AND KEEP DOING IT : when it comes to some mods such as stock manifolds turbos lots of them seem to have reliability and performance issues .
4- Never send your car to the shop before having every single part that you need is right there ready for your car .
5- DOING A BUILT INTERNALS BLOCK ? : BUY NEW CORES ( or used ones if you are sure they are in perfect condition ) and send them over to be built at the shop of your choice , This might be a bit costy at the start but to me it's worth it to avoid down time with the car ( you might be able to sell your cores once your new block is dropped in your car )
6- ALWAYS have the shop that built your car tunes it too ( warranty and avoiding drama once anything happen )
7- don't be a cheap bastard when it comes to installing a fuel system , take the car to a proper shop for a job like that .
I'm running out of thoughts right now , hopefully you guys can chime in and i'll update the thread later .
