My first car! Please read, and help me decide on what to do.
Hello everyone! I am new to this website, and I am new to the car world in general. I just turned 16 recently and got my first car, and obviously it is a Celica! A black 2002 celica GT. Unfortunately it isn't a GT-S but, this is where I am in a pickle. There are so many things to do to the car right now, lower it? Get new rims? Body kit? New paint? New engine? Turbo it? I just don't know. I am saving up money currently and my dad said he would match me if got 800 dollars, which means I would have 1600 to spend.
I wanted to know if I could get a GT-S engine swap so I can have a faster car. I was wondering how much it would cost me for this? Also, if it is even possible! I don't know anything as of now and was hoping I could get some suggestions on what to do from here.
PS. My car has 211k miles on it so it has been through a lot, and yes, it is a 5 speed, not a autotragic. So anything helps! I just need to know what the next step to fixing up my car should be!
