I just spent $400 on the upper half of my 1.0 because of a burned valve (I know, I know should have let 3tech do it), slapped it on and find the 100+ compression it showed prior to the beheading won't come up to 60 - even with oil in the cyls. SSSSSOOOO
I've just started tearing down an extra 1.0 and I want to do most any and everything to it that I can for milage - as we all would like to do. So can someone, anyone that really knows this site and eco-stuff put together a complete list of engine mods that should be considered when doing a total build-up? Would be nice to have it all in one spot. Perhaps two lists - extreme/expensive and realistic/livable budget - would be better. I just read about the Titanium Nitrate trick - great!
What about the cyrogenic thing. Freezing all the parts - de-stresses them or something and they last a gazillon miles? LIST EVERYTHING! PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS!

Thanks! I'll let you know what I choose and how it's going/doing, mgp-wise.
