so keeping on topic, im asking for suggestions, right now if i were to sell my car i would need about an extra 10,000 just to get into the evo scene.
what could i be looking at as far as a budget like that to spend to make some serious power, im just trying to see what is worth you know?
and yes i agree, we think my trans has a RA gear set, because i make well over 300whp.
and no im NOT trying to do an sti evo comparison. i agree sti and evo would be a better comp, but i dont have an sti.
what might you guys reccommend for a motor, trans? if the cost is over 10,000 to get me at 450whp then thats why i may go evo...
I think an ej207 with a rotated turbo in the 35r range on E85 is capable of 450whp. A 6sp/r180 swap can be done for under 4k without the brembos. That's a little under 10k if you play your cards right and do the work yourself.
