Ok, I hate some of you right now for wanting to build up iconic muscle cars like a yenko camaro and a 63 split window! This isn't a money doesn't matter, but it's not like there is a limit. I would say keep it within reason of a car that you could realistically build someday. A grand national would be awesome, although that's a car I'd want to keep stock and just up the boost and do everything that I can without changing the internals. Full bolt on car one could say.

It's got to be a common enough car. Nissans are a great platform for a good modded car.

There's a specialty shop close to my place that does nothing but Nissans. The guy is a god when it comes to SR's. There's a dude with a S13 running a SR20DET blacktop spooling 20+ psi on a completely stock engine. A badass turbo of course. I don't know what kind of numbers he's putting down but that engine makes 250 at the crank on a stock 7 psi. You do the math!

Sr20's don't make 250hp. They might make 200-220hp stock, and up to 240 if you get the most recent version, but not 250. I'd have to say that that guy is retarded running over 20psi with an upgraded turbo with stock block.

But I have to at running an sr20 in an s14/15 would be sweet.

^ The blacktop is out of an S15 silvia. 250 hp. He payed a LOT of money for it.

Even the other SR versions are badass. Running 13 psi on a stock turbo making 240 RW in that light chassis? Those cars are so sex!

Yea you are right it does look terrible now thats why im about to take it down but I got a complaint about it well a sort of non direct complaint but its all good. The SS is willing and already waiting for the past 2 years to get mods Just a bit costly$$$.

blacktops make more than 250. they are underrated


my favorite S13 had an RB26 and 2 inch cowl hood. other than that it looked bone stock.

87 Grand National - but only if it had the original 3.8 Turbo/IC v6. Not a fan of people putting 350s in them.
70 Chevy Nova
69 Roadrunner
68-70 Charger - gotta be black
70 Chevelle with a 454

Something like a Skyline or 2jz Supra would be fun but Japanese imports aren't really my thing. I'd also like an RS4 or M3 with all out suspension work

I would love to do a Alfa Romeo spider with an American V8 either a 302 Ford or a 327 chevy, of course with a five speed manual. I dont know if I could get it to fit though. But I think it would be cool to do.

I've been on a real big s2000 kick the past few months...I've been thinking selling the mustang and getting one actually... hard top s2000=sex

I've always loved BMWs, so I would love to do a E30 if I could get my hands on one that isn't over priced or been to hell and back

A viper would be so much fun as well with that V10 and no traction control

Edit: I'd love to get my hands on a NSX as well.

S2000 with the Greddy turbo kit= easy 300RWHP. Thats dangerous for most cars on the road.

For reference, the P/W ratio would be around .108 with this kit and a stock s2000

For a 2011 GT its P/W ratio is around .114, thats not to far off. Of course you wont have the same torque as the 5.0 lol

S2K's are great cars, the only reason I would get an evo or sti over one is for all wheel drive. Those are my top 3 cars though other than my car.

Holy huge effing pictures batman do any of you know how to take 30 seconds to resize ****? Jesus christ.

Anyways......half of these cars listed are galaxies out of everybodys price range and the other half are setups that are so far from street practical its not funny. So i'll give two categories.

First category - **** i'll never ever be able to afford or daily drive at all(this is everybodys fav category apparently)
-Nissan Skyline or GT-R

Second category - Practical **** that everybody here could afford to mod and drive
-Hyundai Tiburon

I like those little Tiburons a lot. I think they're one of the best looking imports on the road. I'm not sure about their modability though.

FWD and a V6 that makes even less power than my 4.0? Ehh I'd pass. My friend has one with a few mods and it doesn't do anything for me (I've driven it). Plus I don't think there's much of an aftermarket for them. I do agree that they look good though

I would like to build an S2000 too. I really liked them when they first came out. Hardtop FTW
