    I need more power!!! Some say build a 2 valve some say go with a stock mach 1. I say go with a mach 1 but nobody around here has a built 2 valve so Im thinking it would be cool to have something different. Any opinions?

    Either is good.
    the starter question, how much power do you want to put down?

    if you have a 2v now then just build it. With a built bottom end and boost they will be about the same. A mach 1 is a cobra (not really but motors)

    Well, you'll need a blower to hit that with the 2V.

    I suggest you get some estimates for both and see which is more do-able. :)

    build the 2 valve, go forged, put a blower on it and you will be plenty happy burning all the way through 3rd gear.

    I agree, if you have a 2v already..just get a blower.
