    Blanco's advice FTW.
    If you're not looking to spend thousands, FI is probably not your best bet.

    It CAN be done, but you must do all the fab work yourself and know some people that can get you steals on decent parts.

    what is in the turbo kit you put together?

    it would be faster if you turboed compared to building the engine. with a good tune and reasonable boost you can keep within your budget.

    i turboed my b18b1 for only around $600
