    I killed your poll for you. :)

    The mods you listed will keep you very reliable since you're not going inside the engine. Once you start taking things apart to mod the internals, it's all up to how competent you or your builder is at checking clearances and putting things back together properly.

    INTERESTING, THESE MODS, WOULD I BE SACRIFICING RELIABLITY. I MEAN, IM NOT A STREET RACER BUT LIKE TO HAVE SOME KICK IN MY ENGINE, ESPECIALLY RIGHT NOW THAT THE SWAP IS OUT, I WANT TO GET IT SET UP BEFORE IT GOES IN.

    it wont really be sacrificing reliability. i didnt say just put the cams in because your stock b16 valve train can only handle so much and u will need to raise your revlimiter up to about 8500 - 8700 rpm's thats why i said get the valvesprings and retainers too so ull be safe as long as u know how to put ur timing in place.
