lol this thread is full of hijackers

Nice choice on direction, AB.

I'm not much of a fan of boost (i perfer a linear power curve vs. a spike) and general N/A goodness (better on gas, parts tend to last longer ), but a proper FI setup can be alot of fun to build and drive.
i've had my share of turbo'd cars (GTR32, GTiR) and N/A (S12, E30) and it pretty much boils down to preference and what type of driving you do

*which is what i think a few of us forgot in this thread*

its like watching a Wangan racer argue with a gymkhana racer over who's car is better (sorry for the jap reference, its what i know best )

well thats what i'm going for.
i'm taking my time slowly collecting parts.
i'm in no rush so i wait for the deals to come around and they usually do.
i believe by fall of 2011 i'll have it on the track

With that much power you are going to have to upgrade everything anyways, clutch, all the mounts.

My advice would be the m30, would last longer and be cheaper to fix. Turbo = neverending BS and $$$.

Performance one step at a time.

whats the point of massive amounts of HP if you're not bouncing off the rev limiter?
