Re: all motor or NOS

i'm not a fan of nitrous and i wouldn't build my personal car into an all motor car....having said that, of the two options available, the N20 is going to make more power/$$, but i still dont like N20, so go w/ the cams....also, if you want to continue with your all motor project, i have an intake manifold that would suit your needs perfectly and at a good price...

Re: all motor or NOS

I can give some insight on that one...Turbo setups, however fun they may be, are a big headache. They are expensive, sometimes a pain in the ass to maintain, and expensive (just to reitterate that)

For my setup i have invested over $4k into everything. I dont regret it one bit, but it hasn't been without its share of hard times and headaches...

Re: all motor or NOS

I may have overstated that a little bit. My car, since it has been boosted, has given me only a few problems.

1. The idle was messed up for a while
2. The ignition coil fried
3. I ran for a long time one day so the oil was hot and i was running Royal Purple 5W-30. I ended up doing a HARD 1st through top of 4th pull and the turbo smoked for a week. It just pushed a little oil past the seals. I took it apart and had it checked, but it was fine. I was told the oil was too thin for my turbo without a restrictor.

It is a ton of fun though. I can't say that enough. If i hated it, i wouldnt have invested another few thousand dollars in a new setup. I love it to death, but when you push something this hard (especially the stock engine) you're going to run into problems eventually....
