    a low milage 89 tegra with the d16ai doch is a good swap and it bolts in more or less and produces 115 hp
    so it will bge a big step up

    get a ZC. the 89 teg motors suck ass comapred to it, and the zc fits in much easier.

    zc's are under $400 for the long block

    :ph34r: well i think if your going to be cheap with your car that you plan to race or drag, then you should give up the sport.

    ZC is cool fast nice and reliable, with ity you can go turbo later if you want. ;)

    Not everyone who says fast,plans on racing,as a matter of fact,that isn't even what he said.But it is true,fast and reliable is not cheap,cheap and fast is not reliable and cheap and reliable is not fast.
