    whats up i was just thinking about selling my 01 turbo type r and building an NA s2000. if you were in my shoes whould you part it out or just sell the complete car? it's pretty much stock except for the motor work. let me know what you guys would do.

    thats like saying... should i have sex with Kate Beckensale, or Jessica Alba

    i think we call it a win win situation.




    but if you were to sell the Type-R i would say leave it together.
    and if you get an S2000, you should call full-race and turbo that.

    your sig: 01 integra type r #0282 je pistons, eagle rods, aebs sleeves, bored to 84mm, 9:1 compression, t3/t4 turbo custom piping, 3" exhaust and much more............

    not sure how stock that is. i'd try to just sell it straight up. parting out is a headache.

    i wouldn't get an s2000 and plan on going n/a though you will wish you had kept the R.

    it's a pretty solid engine for any N/A work, there isn't much room for improvement. sure a few HP here and there, but I say you stick with the type R. N/A s2000 won't give you the same satisfaction.

    N/A s2000 = ridiculously expensive. You could squeeze maybe 30 more hp for like 5000 dollars. But if you're serious about it, Toda makes some gooood shit for an s.

    fair enough. i'm not trying to start internet arguing because it's dumb. just thought it was funny to point out. I personally would buy the scion over the vette. the scion can take 450 hp on the stock block. those things are bulletproof from the factory. those are nice little cars.

    to tell you the truth im not really sure. i just thought this idea up recently.


    oh don't get me wrong i love the R but it scares the shit out of me even being in my driveway. i feel like it's gonna get stolen any second. plus it is kinda my daily driver and i just want something fast to get around in and thought an s2g might not be such a bad choice.

    buy a 90-93 accord for a daily driver for 1500 bucks, and build a freakin garage.

    problem solved.

    GPS tracking + lowjac + removing your steering wheel and ecu + full coverage...

    that MIGHT help...
