    Rims? Exhaust? Suspension? Cosmetics? Boost? N/A? Paint? Sell it? Your question is too vague my friend. See how many options I listed? Focus on what you want to accomplish, your budget and go from there.

    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.

    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?

    That's impressive. Add shipping to that, then a transmission, axles, ECU, installation...etc. etc.

    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?
    right?
    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...
