    Hey guy, it takes a lot of work to hit 12's




    Rather then worry about your 1/4 mile E.T. just build what you can with your budget, IMO I like 2.0 > 1.8 L.

    h22a swap with basic bolt on's will run about 5k, and will put u in the mid 13's... do weight reduction, its free....really strip the car dwn, then ur running low 13's. perfect ur driving...mayb high 12's. that all depends on alot of factors though. just my 2 cents...!

    Weight reduction is key, there is a website online with a guy running 12's on a stock GSR motor, but the car is gutted. As in like 1700lbs and maybe less. 5K all motor to run 12's might be done. Fully gutted EG with stock R motor ran 12.4 on motor. But these are street cars. I ran a 13.3 with slicks with a stock longblock b16 in a decently gutted hatch. That cost me total after the car 6k in parts.
