I just bought a 95dx 145k...looks in good shape, what should i do to it?
Ive added a cold air and a cat back thats about it, i got those for free.
I have an onther g to spend on it....
strip it out and b16 it!
Again, what do you want to accomplish? I'd say get rid of your stock engine and swap it out with a Z6. You may be able to accomplish that if you are mechanically inclined for less than a grand.
He has a thousand dollars, not three thousand.
if you only have another grand.. i'd do a nice daily suspension, some wheels, good daily sticky tires.. then save for a swap
im def going for speed more than looks with this thing soo that sounds like a good idea...how much would that go for?
This is even better advice.
well, with speed you need handling/braking.. so i'd get the handling/braking out of the way first.. save for a GSR swap or something
I new to this, ive always been a car guy but there has always been a lack of money, im somehow mechanically inclined but not enough to swap an engine by my self....there were some mino problems with teh car, replaced the cv boots and thats about it as far as parts go. the pain is really bad im talking red fading into pink bad. so far im gonna guess im pushing 112hp?
Ya I have seen b16's for $800 on ebay and motor sites
That's impressive. Add shipping to that, then a transmission, axles, ECU, installation...etc. etc.
Luis 998 i saw your thread...dude your sick and so is what your putting together.
No for everything (whole front end )!
Thanks man. All it has taken is a lot of research, dedication and patience. It's all still in the works and because of a set back last year and heck, I'm still learning quite a bit.
no prob man.
So back to my potential ferrari...
with the 1g i have i should:
work on the suspension, get some rims and tires?
or is there anything else i could do to make this 95 dx faster staying in that 1g range for now?
Yes. Go with the advice eg6sir gave you. It makes perfect sense. I'm not with it today.
those mods and learning how to drive the car.
brakes, suspension and tires will help you go faster than an engine swap...if you know how to drive.
i'll take a stock d16 and kill a gsr if i have good suspension, brakes and tires. nobody cares about drag racing. all you need for that is a 3264256253462 hp. worry about that later.
You could maybe throw together a junkyard turbo kit for that much. I'd personally rather save for a swap or a nicer turbo kit though...
