    Hey guys, I need some help. I am getting $1700 and I want some power for my 98 DX CPE. I need help to make a list of mods for my car. I have a completely bone stock DX. I want HHHHPPPPPP! 106hp isn't cuttin' it. Can someone help me?

    shit, thats enough for an LS swap :)
    i paid $1200 for mine... since you need a newer one, 1700 will probably be right on target

    Any other sites? Will the LS be an easy swap? What all will I need for the swap? What is good mileage for the engine?

    I was thinking about doing an LS swap originally but I was also thinking about pimpin out the dx. I think if I got a CAI, 3" piping, dc header, aem fuel rail & filter, Clutch master kit, cam, etc. Then in a couple of months I will be getting some more money and I will be saving for a turbo and getting a dry shot of nos to spool it when needed.
