looking for some engine upgrades

Since I have been out of the loop for awhile and am just getting back into the modding I was wondering what sorta updates have happened in the world of our engine mods.

I remember the basics like pullies, E-fan, tuner but what else has come around? I recently came upon the tom morana lifters and im wondering if thats worth the 400$. Or should I stick to the more simpler stuff.

I know Im not gonna get huge amounts of power from anything I do and no I dont want to swap a engine in lol

Morana's rockers are pretty good and super easy to install. They mainly help the top end. Check out Stuffforyourranger.com Wayne should get you hooked up. Nothing new has really come out as stated. Morana has developed an intake box type manifold and an adapter to use a different TB as well as adapter to use the M112 maybe M90 supercharger... other than that nothing really.
