    Well i have about 12 grand to spend on a car, and i want something that i can drive daily but still keep up with my 1996 mustang cobra (which i am selling) I am lookin to buy a civic 92-95, that was a high miles or blown motor and then buying a JDM engine that i will put in myself. So my questions are : what motor should i get, will that be able to handle a turbo charged ( probably around 7 psi or more if it can take it) Overall what is the best combo of motor and turbo. I am hopin to get something that can run high 13's with 15" rims and street tires is that possible with my budget. Thanks a lot for your help

    you can get high 13's with a lightly built gsr engine and forego the hassle of turbo.

    with 12gs you can find a car for 3k and dump 9 into a motor/turbo. You will run 12s or better

    WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU WANT TO SPEND 12G'S ON A CIVIC? If I were to spend 12gs on a car it wouldn't be a civic. Go for a 240 with an sr20det and keep the rest of the money.

    WTF put 12g into a house or a good investment. Buy a CRX HF and put a 1st gen B16 in it for $2g and save the rest.

    buy a CRX with no engine and straight body, maybe like 500-1000 bucks. get a b18c, build that bitch, boost that bitch, end of story.

    it might be 'ill' but its still a civic. get an rx7 or something along those lines if you really wanna fuck off that amount of cash.
