I personally would put it towards a cylinder head project b4 the nitrous, I would want the engine built up somewhat to not worry about runnign nitrous.

are you talking about the MR-2 Spyder, because the 90's MR-2 Turbo's engine is a 3SGT engine

well you didn't mention body kit...but the GTS rims are good enough in my opinion to be able to rock a body kit as long as it's not too crazy...If i were you i would by a WW lip kit or Vizage kit...and lower it a bit...don't get altezzas they are gay imo. Get TYC reds or tinted tails or something. you should be able to get that kit for $400..maybe better...paint for $300 or better...that leaves you $500...antenna $15...Clear Corners $40...Intake ~$200...drop ~$200...and your celi will be transformed thumbsup

i already have all that stuff i dont wanna buy it---i would run the n20 pretty low so a head wouldnt be first on my list i am iffy on whether or not to get a bc since where i live my car is already so low to the ground but i love the kaminari kit and the action package spoiler-i really wanna do some performance tho and the only good hp thing i have for that price seems like n20 since 1200 will never get me the xs kit for my 2zz

PowerFC, if you can afford tuning soon after. Right now I believe you can get the Commander with the PFC from MWR for about a grand, so at least you can monitor your knock before you get it tuned.

thats all cool i'll have to check into that wingswest lip kit since that wouldnt lower my car a whole lot and i would still be able to go up and down the hills in pittsburgh where i live(i hate the roads around here) n20 is still up there for me i will get the xs turbo once i sell my truck so that will come with the apexi fc anyway after i put the turbo on and n20 i wonder if its worth the performance to lower compression and up psi plus strengthen internals because if not i have to keep turbo to 6 psi and n20 to a 50 shot

if you want power save up for turbo if not then go for rims cause a nice body kit would look fucked up on stock rims

it is an automatic so i cant do clutch or fly wheel, i already have rims,and i will have the turbo money once i sell my truck pretty soon so i'm not worried about that- i want something that will go good with the turbo and i know n20 helps spooling i dont know if i am ready for a body kit yet if so i need to find one that is urethane and not already low to the ground-i was thinking of going with the action package kit because its better than nothing and i have seen it before and its not too low-what are some other kits that dont make your car that low and are urethane?

Get a good suspension set up, since you got money for the turbo kit, and the turbo kit should come with an engine management system of some kind all you really need then is the suspension. The head port isn't such a bad idea either, it should really when you get the turbo.

i was wondering if there were better performance torque converters out there and if they would free up any horspower from the tranny do you reccommend any certain converter?
