Like I said in the PM, you can't do what you want.
You need to reconsider your goals.

If you have been interested in a 3tech head package, but cannot afford to have your car down, while the head is being machined, you are in luck, as I now have core heads available.
The core charge will be $100.

How the core charge works:
You pay for the head pkg at regular price, plus $100.
I ship you a complete, ready to install 3tech head.
When you send your stock, useable head back, you will be refunded the $100.
If you choose not to send the head back, I keep the $100

I am no good for cores right now, they're all out, and I'm waiting for them to come back.
If people send me their heads with sprockets, I mod it, no charge.

I just bought a 2000 Chevrolet Metro a couple months ago and I love it. The thing is that it's not much for traveling. My parents live about 100 miles away and I have to go over the mountains to get there. My Metro won't do more than 45MPH on a 6% upgrade.

I want to squeeze more power out of it. I can't believe how many possibilities I've found online to increase horsepower on this car!

Anyways, to my main point here. I have a spare motor for my car that I am making a project out of. I am interested in your head package amongst other things. I will probably just have things done one at a time until the project is complete. First thing I'm interested in is your Head Package (Performance).

Also wondering if you are able to bore the throttle body. Saw your album, looks like you have modded a couple already.

I would also just like to know if you have any references or resources for someone serious about doing lots of mods and performance upgrades on a 3cyl Metro?

Some of the other things I'm looking for is Headers, Exhaust systems, turbo, MSD ignition, Cold Air Intake (can't find ANYTHING for this).

I don't know if there is a seller/distributor out there for things like this or if it all has to be custom-made. I'm very serious about this project and anyone's insight or advice is greatly appreciated. Anything from distributors & websites to cross-over part compatibility.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Thank you very much! That was a fantastic FAQ. Answered a lot of questions and looks like I would benefit more from the economy cam for now until I get a turbo setup, then I can get a performance cam from you.

I was given a 97 geo metro with 250k miles on it. I just posted my situation at
http://teamswift.net/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=50443
If I decide to rebuild my engine, what type of head would you advice to increase mpg and maybe a little more power?

No problem. Perf. head pkg is $425 on your head, plus shipping, and valves, but we can give you a real good deal on valves with the pkg.
