So background on me.. I did a year in vocational school on auto tech. I skipped engine performance and went into diesel tech. i am studying on becoming an electrical engineer, because electronics fascinated me alot. I am not shy when it comes to tearing things up or putting them together or modifying them. I like being incentive and detail oriented. Recently I decided I was going to build a super computer, after months of research I put together what i thought as the best of parts including asrock z87 mother board intel i7 4960x cpu g skill trident 4x8gb 2800 ram..graphic card was mid profile around 400 i guess they go into the thousands but im using the computer for protools, so speed and strength were my main concerns, 480gb ssd and some nice coolers and power supply . So its going to cost me roughly 4-5k but well worth it and will be top for years to come. I have started saving up for it and im making good progress. I want to do the same with my car. i bought it two years ago, a honda civic ex or cx im not sure. its a 98. i just started doing my research tonight reading forums and trying to compare prices online. i found a website for ERL K20 Engine from 3.5-5k. i read about dart b20 engine. what i want is 300-500 horses, but in reality i want it to be like suited for 1000 horses that being an exageration of course. I want to change everything, i mean everything, suspension, the best i can buy or second best or decently above average, cost is not an issue, i am patient and have no problem saving up money. I want the best i can get for brakes, drive train, transmission, suspension, springs, coils, alternator, starter, power stearing all the linkage, the axles, i mean everything that can be replaced i want to get the best of and a little fancy too. i even want to know about body kits. Please please i beg you recommend good companies and names, because I dont want to buy bad quality, i want top of line marketed equipement and performance. the internal is fine, i might do some adjustments with seats and stuff but my main concern is everything under the hood suspension and drive train. To top it all off i live in california and i was reading that you have to do something within regulations, what i wanted to know was is turbo charged in regulation? if so is it wise to get the k20 with turbo. lets say i want to spend around 4k on block 4k on turbo 4k on other engine parts 4k on transmission and clutch and the rest is in the same neighborhood. i just dont know what header goes with the block and turbo, the little details, or who to trust buying from. I would also need specific tires i suppose to compliment this set up and anything else i would need please to tel me. i need someone with a wealth of knowledge to spare me the hours of research with their wisdom, it would be greatly appreciated. I dont even know if I buy a new engine, with everything brand new how to get a computer set up to connect to it. i have not the slightest idea, but if you an point me in the right direction I promise i learn very fast and work very hard.
