    The bike is (hopefully) being picked up this weekend, and I'm gonna have $4k towards making the D fast...I'm thinking 200ish to the wheels...


    I'm thinking somewhat about just boosting it on stock internals, but I dunno if It'd be worth it....


    Suggestions anyone? I can't spend more than 4 grand on all the turbo shit, including engine management and tuning and such...


    let's hear it.

    build the motor the right way. dont half ass it.
    then see how much you have left.
    continue saving in the meantime of getting the motor built. that money goes towards custom turbo setup.

    just put a kit together and tune it with crome. i wouldn't spend more than 2k altogether. you could do a decent d series setup with that much. and save your money for suspension upgrades

    oh...what would you suggest i do to the suspension?


    i've already got cut springs in the rear and DropZone coilovers in the front, and it handles a LOT better than stock....


    should i get 3-point strut bars maybe?

    i was kidding about this.

    do this, and buy some nice lowering springs and shocks. maybe some neuspeeds and some kybs agx. your car will be 1000x better. you will enjoy it so much more. It will be a whole new car.

    My jaw dropped to the floor for a couple of seconds before I saw your second post. I was gonna have to e-slap you. Neuspeed race springs and konis would get my vote for a decent budget suspension.

    he lives in texas, not cali.

    that's 1/3 the way to a decent downpayment.

    use some of the money to build the engine, then put the rest in a 3 month CD, and then use it for the turbo build.

    I'd recommend saving up another $2.5K and buying yourself a nice EG, preferabley one with a GSR swap, maybe some Tein coilovers, 4 wheel discs. I understand bargains such as that can be had on occaision..

    Seriously, though. I just picked up a 90 crx for $1200 off of craig's list ostensibly for my son. Its really fun to drive, I think a turbo d series would be nice for the handling. can't beat the stock weight distribution.
