16 years old, want to soupe up an import
ok, can someone suggest a good car that I can soupe up? The first thing i would like to do is to get a turbocharger, but as far as I know, if you want to run over 7 psi you need to get forged pistons, connecting rods, and crank. Am i right? Anyway, can anyone give me a suggestion?, I have 16,000 $ to spend
how ironic, your name.
be like every other riceboy 16yr old with too much money and not enough brains. get a civic.
c'mon i need help
sorry, i was being serious, get a civic. there are soo many aftermarket parts available for those cars, that it would be easy to soup one up. Plus, it's great if you dont have an unlimited budget, the car itself isn't expensive.
You could always go with a car that comes with a turbo...such as an Eclipse for example..you can pick one up used for about $5,000 in really good condition...lots of aftermarket parts for them to...and of course if you want to, you can always upgrade the turbo :mrgreen:
But, they're really hard to find. When running over 7 psi, you generally need an intercooler, not the forged bottom end. The best tuner car out there, is probably.......the civic? There's such a aftermarket for it, that I'm sure you can find cheap parts and the insurance would be small.
Get a Type-R Integra which would beat a civic even with a turbo
i say get a 96 si.. soup that up, my brother has one.. its a pretty quick car
That's not true. They're pretty easy to find actually. More-so in certain areas than others. There's tons of them in the Jersey/NY area.
will i need forged internals?
Only if you intend to run insane boost levels.
But zero in the seattle area. Where is V8>4Banger located?
That's not true, I just bought my GSX in Edmonds a month ago (so I guess there's one less).
[QUOTE=Godlaus]Only if you intend to run insane boost levels.
whats an insane boost level, 15+ PSI?
95-98 nissan 240sx with sr20det motor. upgrade the turbo and rebuilt the motor. and then get s15 front clip. it'll be nice and fast.
I agree with the acura dude, get a gs-r its a great car and with a jdm
front conversion it looks great. :drool:
:laughing: my friend is laughing at me for being on this website..lol
What happened, did you hit your head since you posted this? :smoke:
you should get a old 92 toyota supra or something. swap the old motor out for a 1jz-gtte. that would be a sick mod. youll have a mkll with about 260hp stock with a 2.5 liter twin turbo. the motor could probably take some good tuning with stock internals.
If he wants something without a turbo for starters then get a 1985-86 Toyota Corolla GT-S and then put a turbo on it. But for something that already has a turbo on it then go with a 1989-92 Ford Probe GTS with the 2.2L 4cyl turbocharged Mazda engine.
Yeah, thats what I want to know. I remember that post, he was all for the
What happened man?
Any of the following are easily tuneable:
Mitsubishi 3000GT (slightly hard to find these for a decent price though)
Those would be my recommendations. Good luck in your car search :)
A couple of things to remember when you get your car:
1. Dont get a Civic....they are everywhere, be original anything you want to do to it has probably already been done.
2. Get something fast but not too fast, your 16 and i bet you have a heavy foot, any young kid does.
3. If you want a turboed car, for you, i would probably go for the Ford Probe, i dont like them but it may suite you...or an eclipse either one..id go for the eclipse personally
....can happen on any car, not just a turboed one.
He was setting himself up to look like an ass
if u want the best set-up for a 2g 95 eclipse...welll its incomplete and
some parts can be better =)

Why spend money buying a import and sooping or swooping or souping it up for 16k when u can go buy a 2000 Trans Am WS6 that runs a 13.5 1/4 mile and a 0-60 in 5.0 seconds....I drive a civic si myself...and its fun to do stuff to them.....but if you got that kind of money to start off with get something fast already.
LOL Get a old VW bug with a 200 horse scat motor
1300 for the motor
900 for the car
running 12's priceless (and flipping upside down)
well first off its a W5.6 not WS6 and if u do that u end up paying insurance for a V8 the pulles 0-60 in 5 but build a civic to do it and u only pay for a 18 second 1/4 and a 10+ 0-60 it pays off beter to tune a small motor
Cause it shows the world you engineering prowess to extract 100 hp or more per liter out of a car. Anyone with the cash can buy a fast car, but most of us don't have it. Consider tuning a car a performance installment plan. My car was only $14,000, if I put $7,000 into it I will outhandle, out accelerate and overall outperform a WS6 trans-am, Shit I have only put$3,000 into and I can out accelerate one. Thats from a 3.0l V-6 not a 5.7 V-8
If he put 7 grand into a turbo DSM he would be give a vette a hard time.
You could run 25psi of boost and have over 400whp out of four wheels. Not to mention If you do your own work you will learn a lot about how any car functions. Consider it the most awesome educational experience ever
:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: WS6 is an option code that's been around for awhile.
