or why dont u try for a frank build? get a k24 from any market for 130-150,run it for a while and then save up and get a k20a head for about $1300 shipped,i have seen vids of these franks and they got mighty torque,if ur starting up again then start the right way.i can just give u two advices at the moment
this wod be equal to or better than a 97 vti stage one plus 50 shots wet nitrous,im telling this as i have proven it.but with k-pro that is alot of fun to drive and can be daily driven without any probs
both of these are 160hp but with alot of torque,these are the bases of the frank builds,can be bough for 120-140k but in auto,u dont get these in manual,they can be mated with any k-series manual tranny and can be mated on a k20a head to make a frank build.but to run the frank u need to have k-pro
**k-pro is still needed to make any of these work though as u wod run it manual and without immobo,if u go to civic 95 onwards and get B-H series theres isnt much complications in them,just get a h-series,swap it in and wire it up and ur ready to go,plus the k-series stuff is espensive as u wod have seen.
