Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

OK are you going back with the stock motor? how much faster do you want to go? whats your budget?

With engine
Lincoln Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

ok good so you have a solid foundation, you can take it to a machine shop and go .020 or .040 over with better rods and pistons, upgraded crank and heads with good intake for flow, upgrades injectors, plenty of aftermarket support for that, if you do all the work yourself you could squeeze a supercharger in there for 4000, have a nice fun streetable car with about 450 hp

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
