that's the plan. can i use 4age flat top pistons? i want to build it with more compression now. it has a 278 grind cam with springs and as you can see MSD, weber 38/38 and header. so any suggestions on a performance build?

so i went to pull toe plugs and put a compression test on it and i thought will it start? so i got in turned toe key on, pumped the gas twice and went to start it. it turned over about 4 times then fired right up Shocked cheers does not want to idle for shit but as long as i keep my foot on the gas it runs. does not sound like it is missing or anything. just goes to show u cant kill a toyota afro i still plan on getting a new engine to rebuild for it for now but as much as i love the 4ac i will be doing a swap after a long and very expensive build. and not a 4age.
