    I have about 13,000 dollars to spend on my car. This will be a daily driver. I plan on purchasing a civic with a blown engine on the cheap. I have never really worked on engines before, but have been doing a lot of reading up on the subject. Taking into account that I am going to be spending most of the money on the engine, (minus rims, lowering springs) what would you guys do? I am hoping to get 300 hp at the wheels. Is this possible? Any parts suggestions or advice would be appretiated, thanks.

    Give me the $13,000 :)

    there are so many possible answers to this question. What do you want to do with the car? how much power do you want to make?

    if you have 13 grand, sell the chassis for a grand, and buy a 95 ///M3 for 14k.

    been there, done that, and honda just isn't fucking worth that kind of money

    what do you mean? you're not even there yet! :p
    and don't hate on hondas so much, you're going to despise your car you dumped all that money into, might as well enjoy it now that you have it.
