Re: What the compression should be on 1300cc??

How 'bout CAD$1000.00 for a 4.88 R&P set from Nissan dealer....$2000.00 for front 'n rear....that was the #1 reason why I sold my Pathfinder. Bloody hell.
Anyway, I rather swap the 1.6 in instead of re-building stock 1300...a bit more $$ I guess, but considering the work and downtime involved, the gains of such a swap are all too obvious me think. Truck runs fine for now (touch the wood) so let it be.
After a massive cleaning session (the previous owner was a pig) I don't need to take a shower after a short ride anymore. Ditching the VERY_sticky carpets helped to get rid of that bad smell too. To my delight there's only very little rust on the floors and almost none in the fender wheels. Should be easy to fix; or perhaps I should just Rhino-line the whole tub and let the rust live underneath :-)
With an immediate effect I'm planning to change the front seats (I wish re-upholstery was cheaper, I really like the stock [JX] buckets), rain_proof the (almost new) rag_top, halt the distributor leak, install the Kick power steering, put some 2" body lift, stronger alt., make tube bumpers, put some tunes in along with the CB, etc.
Long plans: coilovers (considering Toy axles), lobster, 5.12's, lock-rites, roll cage....ouch, that's going to hurt my pockets big time.
OTOH, knowing myself I will probably end up maxing out my VISA and get all that stuff done much sooner than in my wildest dreams...my 33's (leftovers from the Nissan) are getting lonely in my locker...they're calling me...Aaaawwww!!!!
Sorry for the long rant, but I'm REALLY excited with all those opportunities to spend my aftertax $$ :-)
Thx for your input, yours truly Salami rider
