Hi guys, new to this forum, and I'll give you some quick background. Currently, I own a 99 Z28 that makes close to 400rwhp, I did all the work myself so I'm pretty mechanically inclined. My plan is to sell this and buy a Honda
, with the help from you guys. I want to turbo this Honda, and I will be doing 90% of the work myself. My requirements are as follows...
-It needs to be manual
-Preferably around 2500lbs from the factory
-Will mainly be used as a daily but may take it to the track should I feel it is worthy
-Don't have a problem replacing engine
internals, but I need a car that has a strong block from the factory, as in the actual block itself, not the rotating assembly
-Looking for 400whp
-I'd like to go with a preferably large turbo for top end spool, not concerned about low end power
These cars are fairly cheap to work on so budget is not a problem, but I'm not throwing 10k into this, like to do the work for around 3-4K. I want to but all my own turbo
parts for the build, but first I need help choosing what car would be the best to start with? No K20, that's my only exception. I'm a domestic guy so I know very little about imports, but I want a cheap summer project, so give me some help here, thanks everyone!
