    i cant decide on what i want to do over the summer, i have 2 choices
    1. Get a complete pi swap from powerheads.com h/c/i (stage 2 kit) for $2600
    or
    2. Get my car touched up with paint and order the heat extractor hood (maybe a cobra front bumper too) and have that painted to match

    the paint isnt hideous, just scratched up and minor dents, as of now im 90% going towards powerheads, cause that stage II kit says it will throw down 110 rwhp
