There's a lot of threads we need to keep handy, but when it got to where you had to scroll down the page two times to get to new threads, it was a bit much.

At least this way, they're still here but not taking up so much room.

Is there one on here for the best process to just freshen up a 302? I would like more reliable HP but I really cant justify the $$ to build something extreme. I am just wanting to do a simple rebuild, maybe a cam, better intake maybe heads. Ofcourse this also has to happen on a budget that will also include 2 kids, 2 other cars(besides the pony), 2 mortgages and a wife.
What are the areas I should focus on? I am planning on doing the "extreme build" in 5 or so years. I am looking for something that will allow me to put her back on the road next spring.....ideas, suggestions?

86 GT Vert, Black, T-5, MAC shorties,40 series flowmaster 2-1/2", O/R X, CAI, EXP2 Upper and Lower, EXP2 injectors, 65 mm TB, Electric fan, 4:10's, 180* T-stat, MSD coil, cap and button, Taylor wires, 17x9 Cobra R's

07 Dodge Magnum. Electric Strawberry(Red), leather, DVD headrests(for the kiddos).....the grocery getter with an attitude!
87 Porsche 928 S4, Guards Red, sunroof, auto, leather, 18x10's in the rear and 18x8's in the front, magnaflow 2-1/2" exhaust

Yeah it looks nicer, but not having them more visible means that we get constant repeat threads, like THIS one! :kooky:

Does AFM have a dedicated KOEO/KOER/CYLINDER BALANCE thread?? The link below is the procedure from another site,but a link from AFM itself would be better,if one exists.If one is available,can a moderator delete the link below & replace it with the appropriate AFM link??? Thanks
