the svt was definately a step up doug!
so i need help deciding if its even worth it to take my cams and gears out?!?!
my first biggest reason was so i could run lower octane gas but i did some research and then an experiment and for the last 2 tanks of gas i've been running 89 octane instead of 93 octane and the focus has been running fine no pinging detonation nothing so if i keep running 89 octane i'm set on the gas! now the next part is:
i'll be able to get maybe $250 out of the cams and gears by the time i ship them....
if i drive up to Andrei's to take them out thats gonna be about $45 in gas round trip plus the best days for Andrei to help me are weekdays so i lose a full day of work which is between 70-85 bucks depending on how long i work so it will cost me $130 to remove them just to sell them is it even worth the $120 i'll make back?
I'm not changing my mind again but the more i think about it the more i'm like hmm is it even worth taking them out?

No not really. I went through this on my Honda and the only place it gets you is farther behind in the long run. You've spent the money to put them in, so you might as well keep them in now.
