More questions!! Is your rig auto or manual trans? Did you have to sacrifice the A/C? How difficult were the mods?
My rig has 268,000 miles on it and may soon need either a rebuild or modified replacement. I like the idea of a V6 conversion if I don't have to alter the rig too much.

manual tranny, still have my AC, had to create a metal plate to position the compresor.

ther thinks are that I took advantage to use the GM Power stering pump, also change the alternator, its a Toyota one, here in Panama a new one cost like 30 bucks but the kia one can cost 300 bucks, also don't know but i had to repair it once a year inclusive i change it 2 times, so I made the Toy upgrade on the alternator too.
