is it possible? ive seen some 12 second integras on ebay for 9k. my friend has a CTS for a daily driver, and wants a cheap, fast, sleeper for fun around town. i saw one very tastefully done JDM integra. laguna seca blue with black wheels and a jdm front :thumbup: any ideas guys? preferably way under 7k

Im sure it can be done. Buy a civic/integra/crx and something of that sort. Im sure you can find a shell for 1k or something. Then put 6k into the engine, strip it of parts except the front driver seat. And walla! 12 second car.

Im not big for imports, but your easiest way to get a cheap car to go 12's or faster is to get a hatchback shell and swap a b-16, 18, ect.... nitrous and build it up. Or you can tke the domestic side and buy an older foxbody 5.0 for a few thousand and build it up also. Possibilities arte unlimited when it comes to making fast cars, just depends on the setup you want. Go for the gold and buy a 5.0 for the win:thumbup:

Can we say 5.0 anyone :lol:

They would completely take out the honda for dollar value.

I knew a guy who had a hatch with a gsr motor, ran a 13.2.

You ever look at how muhc honda motors are :wtf:

The 5.0 will do it much better, + RWD :thumbup:

If you have 9k, buy a 5.0 for like 4k, buy a ford racing motor for about 3500 I believe, then ****ing throw a 150 shot and you should be running that, with slicks.

NM, I see you say 7, so avoid buying a new motor.

If all you have is 7k, honda is out the question. GSR motors are like 4k. :thumbdown:

Its not going to happen unless you buy something with alot of miles on it. Otherwise you will have to build it.

Hi, Im your pal Greg
I just saw a 9 second camaro on spray for like $3500 on ebay, I dont know what it sold for, but thats still fast. It ran in the 11's without the nitrous, and it had a full role cage.

Another idea would be to buy a car with a rebuilt title(wrecked) but the resale value would be next to nothing.

alright so can it be done with a foxbody?

Everything :lol:
H/C/I give a lot of go
You can do forged pistons/bottom end and throw a huge shot of nitrous on.

IF your are familuar with carbs, you can look for lower year foxes.

The years I was always looking at was 89-92, they came with forged internals already and are considered probably the best of the foxbody world. I suggest you look at some forums and start reading alittle bit more about the world of 5.0s :D :thumbup:

Online, that was always the cheapest I could find when I wanted a hatch.

Well, he lives where I live, so finding that good 5.0 for 4-5 k is hard, thats why I asked him about carbs.
