Re: tx3 turbo's

If you want good info and advice on lasers, go to www.fordlaser.com
It's a good website, plenty of help, and useful info on the little lasers.
Also heaps of spare parts you could pick up from laser owners.
Hope this helps.

There is plenty of easier & cheaper ways to go for more power from that motor rather then swapping to the later engine.
