you can do some cheep upgrades to get som power outa theat 6 banger. get a 2 brl adapter and ditch the 1 brl, get the duel exaust manifolds from a fi engine(87 n up), portmatch head to the gasket then portmatch that to the exaust/intake manis. those motors just need to breeth and they come to life. check out clifford performance.
