Looks like it's time for suspension mods.

ohh yes! Ive got to put shocks on it, it rides like a brick sh** wagon there is hardly any recoil, then with low profile tires the ride is brutal

Fuel delivery

Intake, injectors, fuel pump and MAF if you want more power. If you have not done it already tie up the frame and a strut tower brace will plant more power to the ground, ladder bars help a lot, no more wheel hop.

i might do injectors :S i actually took the motor all apart to diagnose only 90PSI on piston number 8. Havent found the problem :S maybe a slight head gasket leak or intake gasket leak, anyways hopefully this rebuild will fix it :)

Check Heads

Check the heads with a mini torch for cracks and the block surface as well.

ive pressure washed it, and degreased it about 3 times. Its so clean its almost shiny but have had a master tech look at the block and heads and no signs of wear anywhere on the engine :p not even a slight sign of ring ridge. Engine had really good compression and i bought it off an older couple who only drove it to the grocery store and back.
