I4=not fast *but i myself actually did price some things on building a 92 cavalier once and i do know that your average parts store...autozone ect. does carry a larger cam and different pistons for that engine. I forget all of my numbers but i had it at like $550 with me doing all of the work and that included head milling ect. but then i thought..why bother when it may add 30-40 horsepower maximum. i also have a friend that put a turbo on a 98 cavalier turboed and it probably doesn't make 220 hp. my advice is to not worry about how fast your cavalier is and use it as a daily driver and save your 1500 for something else. I would also like to declare that vw bugs are not fast.

Why throw that one in there? after a flame war? (unless I'm missing something)....and I think you'll find most cars can be made fast!

No Cliffy, he's simply throwing that in there to publically display his complete and total stupidity. But you see, the good thing is that he's not alone. And the best thing is that as long as the world his idiots like him around, it makes it easier for me to roll in on a T&T night and empty out their pockets. Hey bigfrye, douche bags like you rule.

On a lighter note, has anyone ever wondered why someone would use a name like bigfrye? Probably doing his best to compensate virtually for his real world small fry. If his screen name truly described him, he'd call himself itsybitsyteenyweeny.

heres a really nice cavalier

he says he has a turbo and nitrous, but he probably doesnt care about performance quite so much as looks

Well if you're so fully knowledgable and competent, why are you here asking us? You've done it before, just jump in and do it again. Until you figure out exactly what kind of car you're going to do this work on, you're wasting both our time and your own.

Hey, here's an idea then newb. Why don't you help him? All I've seen from you is bitching about other people. How exactly does that help the guy with his car? Answer? It f*cking doesn't. Go crawl back under your rock.

That's a good way to get help. Ask the right questions the right way and you might just get the help you're looking for.
