So NASIOC, I ask you to help me out with what you think I should do next. I finally got this thing on the road a couple days ago after a blown head gasket in May caused a cylinder to hydrolock, shatter a piston, break a rod, and bulge the block out far enough to break the water crossover pipe underneath the intake manifold. Probably the worst day of my life. But thankfully I have her back on the road.

I've been putting a lot of thought into this, and I just can't decide what to do. I think I need to do some more to the exterior of my car. I've always wanted to get a carbon fiber RS hood and a carbon fiber wingless trunk. Eventually I want to paint it a different color although I can't make a decision there either. Black, white, red, and even flat black have crossed my mind. I'm also a fan of the Voltex Rear Diffuser and a Prodrive front lip. I've wanted a big brake kit for awhile now, and I've strongly considered ditching the knockoff wheels for a set of hyperblack 18 inch Rota Grids (I know these are knockoffs too, but the build hurt the wallet and Rota's are waaaaaaaaay better than freaking Speedy Motorsports.)

Give me some suggestions! I'm open to anything, and sorry about the novel.

Hope everyone loves it. I did all of this myself except assemble the longblock. Also, and suggestions anyone has for a mod will take some time. I'm 19 and in college, I save up for all my mods and pay cash, except for my powerplant build. Had to refinance the car because I simply didn't have time to save up for all of this and I HAVE to have AWD while at school. But i'll be sure to put some pics up as soon as I get it installed!
tl;dr

Hopefully. I live in a really rural part of West Virginia though, so I'm not even sure where a dyno is around here. The closest one I know of is in Pittsburgh.

Thanks for the compliment!

They were really helpful with everything, although they were a little slow with the block. I think it took like 2 months for me to get it, but I'm really happy with their work. Good things take time.
