Ok, well, it seems as if my plans to get an LS motor will be completing nicely soon. The donor is a 97 teg. The host is my 95 DX coupe. Unfortunately, that means OBD2, so that makes things a bit more complicated. My plan is to build a junkyard turbo setup, with the exception of fake tuning. I'm planning on trading the money that would be used for the bottom end, for a hondata system. I will be getting a t3/4 hybrid from my cousin, so that is all set. Otherwise, im looking to build a junkyard type setup, or at least with used parts. I have access to some pretty serious equipment (most any tool, engine lift, welders, you name it) ala my brother and my dad's shop. So the DIY work can be mostly handled by the fam. I also need to address the OBD 2-->1 conversion issues. I'm not exactly sure about how I'm going to convert everything from 2 to 1, because of the turbo/hondata complications. I'm sure someone knows what to do. As you might guess, im quite the troll around here, so I obviously know generally what is needed. But I've also never done it, so I'm banking off all yall's experiance I just need to formulate a parts list and associated cost, so I can plan accordingly. Budget is about 1,200 (yes it's tight) but since that doesn't include the turbo, im in OK shape. Projected WHP is 225-250, fully tuned. And I know im high balling for a stock bottom end, but I'm banking on the superior tuning to keep things going. As soon as the budget expands, I will be heading right for the valvetrain and the bottom end. After phase 2 is completed, ill be looking for 300. Build the best kit for my money! Thanks guys, Kevin ***CLIFF NOTES**** Turbo setup w/hondata. All parts/prices to go with a t3/t4. Already have turbo. 1,200$ budget. Used acceptable. Suggestions.
