996: Engine Work or Wheels?
I'm looking at spending some money around the end of November, early December. I seek advice on one of two routes;
Route #1-Wheels, I have the anchors. I am almost to getting the standard 5-spoke because I cannot stand looking at the anchors anymore. However, I'd much rather go with mag wheels. If the standard 5-spokes are a worthy performance improvement I may go that route and spend the remaining dollars on a custom map or real cans. Thoughts? Better braking? Etc...
Route #2-Engine out, engine painted, HC pistons, squish, cam timing, TB sync and CO level set, of course I'll go ahead and do the valves, clean and repaint the oil cooler and radiator. (I will be doing everything myself except the Tbs, CO level and cams)
For now I am light weight flywheel, UM222, cored exhaust, 15-40 gearing. All that said, I am happy with the power for now but would be more happy with more power, it's the brakes that are awful.
