    I heard putting a handful of mothballs in your gas tank every fill-up will "make it run like a scared rabbit.

    Download the FSM and set to factory specs. You will be much farther ahead having done that.

    You're "researching" from a phone. Put the phone down and find a computer.

    You didn't offend anyone just sound stupid.
    Do your own research then ask a educated question.

    There is a wealth of information available if you are willing to take some effort yourself to aquire it.

    The people on this board help because they enjoy sharing.

    Some of us are a little old school and believe in old fashioned concepts such as spelling and punctuation.

    Humour(Canadian spelling)us.

    Regards

    Since nobody else will help you take talk to Dave rebello he builds l series motors. You also could use your motor mill your cylinder head down and use a slimmer head gasket to raise compression ratio a bigger cam 6 to 1 header with exhaust new plugs better wires better coil cold air intake that would be a good start

    "Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it." - Unknown

    I am of the mindset that the engineers that designed you're engine did so to maximize horsepower and reliability to start with. Modifying there design will only be a trade off of some sort. So IMHO build it to factory spec.
