“” where im from. anything that has 4 cyl is declared a ricer. no matter if it has turbos, s/c, etc... because they see it like this, if a honda civic has 4 cylinders and a set of twin turbos and n2o and a fox body mustang thats 4 cylinder with the same set up, they are the same. therefore called ricers, thats the only reason i said it like that, im not trying to offend you in any way but thats just how i grew up and what cars like yours are called around here.

but why a 4cyl? why waste the money on a 4banger when you can buy a 302, stroke it to a 347 or something, and turbo it. youd get twice as much or more Horses and spend the same amout of money or less....? i just dont get it.
Originally this was just going to be a swap, stock for stock, just the stock turbo coupe engine just for some cheap extra power untill i got the money together for the v8 build i wanted to do originally. But the more i messed with it the more it grew on me, i spent a far amount of money so far but nothing crazy. there are those who have gone faster with less money then i spent with 2.3t, this car will run a 12, and when im done this new set up ill be in the 11's im sure. You would really have to mess around with one of these to really get it. when i first heard about them i brushed it of pretty quick, but then once i saw the potential of these little engines  and how rediculously cheap and easy it was to start off i couldnt resist, also i was pretty broke at the time. if i took the money i spent on this engine and put it toward a v8 i dont think i would be making much more power. Its a hobby.
