    Ok, I have a 99 honda civic ex. and planning to put an ls motor in it.
    my goals are to keep up with v8's. not to smoke the crap out of them just enough to beat them. so i'm looking at, correct me if i'm wrong, the low 13's area. so exactly how much money am i going to spend, after the ls motor swap. thanks :unsure: :D

    :withstupid:
    i'm not a fan of FI but if you just want to keep up/beat V8's, your cheapest and easiest way is to go n2o.

    well, i really don't know much about n2o, so i'm reallly not going to mess with that. but how likely or easy is it for me to run low to mid 13's with a turbo? easy, ok, or if you owned a bank and half a state type deal, money wise. :unsure:

    doing it is one thing
    doing it right is another
    doing it reliable is a thing in and of itself, and ends up costing the most money.
