      Yep, and being young he still has plenty of time to learn I would soak up as much knowledge as possible and find a local that would be willing to take you under his wing and show you a thing or two. A local enthusiast that would be willing to have you learn and assist a head rebuild etc. Basically to teach you

      Yup. Thing is, super charger can be bought within his current budget, and is a relatively easy install for somebody wanting to get familiarized to the car and the world of wrenching. It will also get him enough power to be dangerous/happy for a while. And if he doesn't have a loaded tool box, should still have enough money to get a pretty decent amount of basic hand tools.

      I did the above. Now the kid can build vr's in his sleep.

      It's nice to having someone who is somewhat knowledgeable around.
