    RE: best direct swap?

    i wanna get one too, but my parents dont want me to spend that much money, and i dont even need it. but i will get it when my engine dies. and do you think that it'll still be 99$ and freeshipping in like 6-12 months? i hope so. and also when i do put on of these in, do i need any extra parts or is it a pretty easy fit, and how fast do you think i could go with it in my tornado?

    Yep, I have that one in my Volcano SV. I don't have it tuned properly yet, but I can tell that it is more powerful than that Vertex engine, you'll love it. Oh yeah, you may want to consider gettin' a header too, and maybe a tuned pipe!!
