    do what I do. browse ebay for an RSX Type S model. Buy it... Search again for a CRX, EF/G/K Hatch model. Buy it. "Swap" the K motor in the other model. If you wanna go crazy (like me) find a GT series Porche/Audi and snag a turbo off of it. Or make your own. Some say lame, others "interesting." Either way it passes time.

    I twin turbo'd a C6 chassis and made a fabricated aluminum intake manifold for it. Then I modded it to fit under a 69 Camaro body. Reshaped the interior to fit as well. Took a couple weeks to build and about 10 minutes for my nephew to destroy. Along with my race spec'd 71 Challenger T/A.

    Those are the only two modded ones I've done. I just finished a replica of my brothers 71' Nova but its in Ohio. I've got a GT Series Porche model kit waiting to be scavenged once I find the car i want to put its drivetrain and suspension in. I like to take their rims and wide slicks, various suspension, brakes, and of course turbos and stick them in whatever I can find. That or I make my own turbos. I also use the casting "trees" and bend them with a lighter or torch into exhaust plumbing and roll cages.
