Hey everybody, I'm finally getting around to doing my 3tech economy head swap and I just want to see if there's anything else I should be doing while I've got it all ripped out?

So far the things I've bought are: Timing belt, water pump, complete head gasket set, headbolts, and an advanced timing sprocket

Is there anything else I could do while I'm at it to get more power or economy out of my shitbox?

well power certainly isnt going to be a side effect of the econo package...

Actually, if you read the reviews, more low end power is a "side-effect" of the econo head package. Also, the advanced timing gear, match ported head, and higher flowing intake and exhaust mods should help that department out too....

Haha, it's a pretty easy thing to overlook in a car that has about as much low end torque as a chainsaw... :D

Do yourself a favor and put new rings and rod bearing in while the head is off.
