    If going that far on the body, it'd conider the BP swap. I prefer the BP over the 1.9L hands down. I have about 200K on mine and it's still strong. A few conceptuals would be nice if able. I have done some custom work myself and there are few things more rewarding.

    XD was worried about that to at first...but then I stopped a cop and asked him... He took a look and said they were fine. Couple of days later I did get pulled over told the cop I asked another cop he asked me for the cops info and I had it... SPoke with the other cop and they marked it on their system that its ok. XD never had a problem since and I see many cops a day... (2km away from 24 hour station) joys of Canada.
