I'm serious.
Hey man, not all of us can afford to drive 5 cars, forcing us to modify our slow, worthless 2.5i's

In all honesty though, I do wish for more power. I know I'm not getting it from my current car and I know that I will be keeping this car for a few more years so a mod here and a mod there helps keep me happy. One day and STi will be parked in my stall......one day....I hope. Or a swap. That'd be a fun route to take my wagon.

what about a turbo build....shortblock swap/sti internals into the RS block....standalone.....and a good sized turbo? no sense spending 10,000$ for a swap when u can get the same results with 3500-5000$...

lol woot!

the key to a successfull rs-t build really is the EM....pay the money for a hydra, get a block thats properly built, go cheap on everything else and you wont have any problems....

i just wish i knew everything i know now the first time i tore apart my car....it would be in a LOT better shape...

It's not worthless... my friend has like a 1992 Civic that he got DIRT cheap. Put a new motor in it, turbo kit, ecu and it flies. Fast and cheap .

They aren't my cars. Just that I have access to the other cars in the family.
