hey all i dunno if any of you ever read any of the guch threads form the se area or not but to make a long story short he basically fucked over a bunch of people who got there motors rebuilt there. anyway after about 10k on my guch rebuild i am only making about 70 psi compression on both rotors. i am gona save up for a good motor builder but till then heres the question. i have an opportunity to get my car tuned by steve kan in a week. now should i spend all the money its gonna take to get my car ready (overnight a divided mani from california $150; dowpipe and intercooler pipe?$150; tune $300 and dyno time??) now would yahll go through all the toruble and money toget the car ready and tuned or just say **** it and keep the car on the base map till i save up enough for a real, good rebuild?

rebuilds have low compression when you first get them, you have to drive it under different varying loads to build compression...youmay have 70psi on the rotors but how many miles on the rebuild?
