you are one lucky mutha****a, I had a te44 in my car that seemed to be ok, but my car ran like ****(still beat most of the cars in my area though). If you go any higher than a te44, you will most likey need bigger injectors, your stall is fine. I personally would spend my money on something better than the headers. Dont forget about the intercooler too, frontmounts are where it's at in my opinion, you should definatly get one thats helps to cool the air down (my stock got heatsoaked in no time)

Uh...so what is the question again? :confused:

If you are asking about a turbo, please pose the question in the 'turbo' area of the forum. That way, if someone searches for a similar problem, your question may answer theirs as well. Same for the injector question (fuel section) and stall question (trans area).

Why do you need a rebuild? Is the engine rattling? A ton of miles? Problems? Don't fix what isn't broke...
