Some ump in that 4.2

Now i no the 4.2 is considedered to be a awful engine, but since i got it i like it. So i was wondering what are some great ways to get some more power that i will be able to feel, cause i really hate being spanked by a Tercel( awful feeling considering a got a 6 and i dont think he even had a 4 hehehe) Thanks

Well really the 4.2 is a better engine than most its the other things that make it bad like the carb.Wiring and head design.But a better carb and ignition system you really get somthing going with the 4.2.I am very happy with mine.

I have ridden my dirtbike there for years and have never seen a cop. Supposily that land was set aside by penn state, for a recreational area. Give me some time in advance to get off (Nights at Claibornes), and yea it would be fun.

Next time you get a chance to go up there email me in advance. I'm off most weekends. I can go almost anytime. I still might go up there this coming Friday.
