    ok so i called a salvage and they have a 93 ex motor thats shot but the IM ECU and CAM are still good so im thinking about taking thoughs, im told this will give me about a 15-20 hp gain. now...i have not quite looked into flowbenching yet, couldnt find it in my manual. and will be doing the ignition timing and fuel table. im asking if it wont hurt my car to put that stuff in before i do the timing and tables, and what will happen if id do. also cb7tuner.com recommends a IM spacer (not TB spacer, ive learned my lesson on that...) from blacktrax witch they have a dyno chart that proves gains. is it worth it or is there something else i should do instead?

    also thinking about changing valve springs....

    No it shouldn't hurt it at all. The blocks are identical. Just put everything at its factory mark. It should just run like the a6. I have never done any tuning so I'm not sure what goes into that. I might get to play with that this winter.

    oh and one other thing,what about the oil pan baffle or windage for the ex, i know its not much of a gain on hp so much as its just a better part for my car...is it worth it? and what do i do to pull it off the ex?

    i may have to post in a other forum of thread for this question....
