I'm sitting here at work just messing around seeing what I could do with my car if I had some extra funds layin' around.

Short of kidnapping Tony the Tiger and forcing him to build up my car :D here's what I wish I could reasonably do...

URD fuel upgrade (pump and injectors)
JPP Headers and exhaust
[email protected] , head, fuel filter a lines
Element's Sparco seats
XenonDepot HIDs
VIS CF hood
Gauge pod and guages
5 spd tranny
Neon underbody kit

What are some things you wish you could get for your ride?

Oh man, what I wish I could do with my car...
Get Dual 48mm DCOE Webers instead of my one 45
Buy a 2TC head port and polished, from ParadiseRacing.com
Get a performance cam
Racing Beat ignition wires
GReddy, or HKS turbo and intercooler
Stage 1 nitrous system, dont care whether NX or NOS
I'm getting my header soon, but for the hell of it, PaceSetter 4-2-1 header
Flowmaster muffler

I have big dreams for my car, but a very small wallet, I'll probably never even see a turbo near my car in my lifetime.

3mzfe block + 1mzfe head(if they fit together)
5spd tranny(as soon as this auto kicks the bucket)

You and me both bro! Keep the dream alive. Even if you never reach the turbo, have fun learning and getting there.

2wickedtoyz:
What's the hurdle with dual exhaust? The Spare tire tub?
Chop your springs..it's free
rsb isn't that expensive. Turn a few tricks
Why not be different and try to showhorn a 5VZ-FE in?

for the rsx, i'd like a K20A (type-R yo!) swap, some RS watanabe cyclone wheels, in 16x7, a drop obviously, my vis cf hood, a hid retro along with an LED setup in my tails. Re-map the K20A the way it is in the Lotus Elise to make 240, then bolt on a JR race header, Borla exhaust, Injen intake.


For the camry, i'd like it to run first, then i'd like to replace the 2VZ with either a 3sgte or a 5VZ


EDIT: i forgot to add on the RSX that i'd retain the black sideskirts and front lip. I'd rpelace the interior interior with black cloth, and use a base model 5-spd shift knob instead of the 6-spd. I'd also use teh base gauge cluster, and replace the valve cover with teh base valve cover for a total sleeper look. Maybe replace the R manifold with a base manifold (base is plastic, R is metal) set in the short runner position, unless thru proper tuning there was a way to make it switch btwn the long and short, cuz i think it uses the same signal as lift does

trunk mount doesn't look as aggressive as a FMIC...whenever i see them on any other car..makes me drool...

i would love to have a full 3SGTE swap along w/5 spd tranny in my camry ahhh nice dreams :loove:

after some unfortunate circumstances mostly called "laid off of work" the MR2 4AGZE swap project is on definite hold but i hope that dream will become a reality someday soon :)

on my hubby's '96 integra ls i would love to do a DC2 swap complete w/mugen parts, mugen twin loop exhaust, etc etc but keep the exterior the way it is plain & simple :)

who knows maybe someday ...

new oem springs all round
tokico blues
whiteline rsb
kvr ceramic brake pads
maybe some 16 or 17 inch rims,

and of course more power and 5spd swap, but none of this will happen, i'll probably save money and buy something smaller (been leaning towards mid 90's miatas lately)
