I love the safety of this forum, "no noob bashing" lol. I have been into hondas for 12 years. Having everything from a 140hp crx to my current 400hp 1995 coupe. Cut the BS, ill get right to the point. Im getting a 2003 plane wrx this weds. It has a blown headgasket so im getting it for dirt cheap. My buddy has an sti so he knows not what i need to do. My goal for now is 320-400 wheel, my ultimate goal is 450-500 on meth or e85.
My question is for the time being i have about $3000-$4000. can i sleeve the 2.0 that is coming with the car and fully build it or do i just get a 2.5l sti motor, swap that in and try to make 300 wheel on the stock sti with bigger turbo, better fuel supply, tune etc?
Or do I just fix the blown HG, ride around stock and build something on the side and save up until I have the $6000-$10000 i need? Thanks for all the help, and yes I am sure this has been asked a million times before so I apologize. I am going to search as much as I can but my deadline is weds so i thought by posting this i would get more info faster.
