    welcome to Vec-c Gareth. Hope you find a good one, i can't advise you on those engines unfortunately, there are better engines to choose from though . Plenty of good tips will come come along or if you have a read you will find them sooner as hundreds have asked the same thing over the years..

    4k can get you a motor, these vecs do need the work though, for that money you may get a cracker but you more likely to get one that that will need a few things replacing. Having to replace these things is no bad thing, is something is worn out you have the perfect excuse to upgrade it to a better component.. for example the factory springs are like chocolate and well worth replacing, while your at it you do the droplinks, springs and ARBs front and back.. the ride will then feel like new and its not hard to do yourself..



    Look out for the expensive things
