biggest is street terminator from lentech automatics w/ torque converter...
next would be new turbo from tom to replace the one i was going with...
next... sand/soda blasting unit from eastwood...

next... new 2 stage air compressor from lowes (kobalt)

no pistons yet......called wiseco last Thursday...said they should be done "soon"... bout as best an answer i got... sent them back both sets of pistons plus one of my factory pistons...if they get it wrong this time im done... i'll get my money back and go somewhere else...

also if cap one ever decides to stop holding my cd ransom i'll order goodies in previous post... funny how you can open a cd in a hour or so but it takes 21 days after the close date to release the funds... hmmm...
