1st gen or nothin' dude, psh. 2nd gen's are gay. keep the sentra and get the auto built, better for drag racing anyway.

5k for a 96 sentra?.......i doubt u will get that, shit..you'll be lucky to pull 4K for a really clean sentra..also, u mention the teggy is modded...so why ask what your first mod should be?:confused:.....id look into some cams i guess.

your probably reading it wrong. i think hes going to sell his sentra for w.e he can get for it and its possible that he has other money asside. what he really said is that he can get the integra for 5k...didnt say anything about what he wants for his sentra

i dont think i misread it....he said hes trying to sell his auto sentra....good. then he mentions buying a teggy for 5k with a manual transmission.exhaust, header, intake .etc etc. he then proceeds to ask what his "first" mod should be to the teggy

chop, you misread it, anyways, i can get 2.5 grand, and i have around 3 grand saved. so i want to buy the teg. i will have around five hundred left, so i am looking into more parts. but today, i ran across a 2000 mitsu eclipse gt-v6 for the same price without mods, should i get that instead?

nissan is pretty good for road racing/ more speed. but honda takes the suspension part, they can pull some nice auto-x times. i will never forget the day i was sitting in ceramics class and the table accross from me was talking about cars, well the ricer girl with the fiberglass non painted front bumper that was cracked (didn't even have primer on it! you could see the fiber glass sheets lol) and held together by duct tape. well she says "sure mussel cars are nice to look at but if you want SPEED its the civic all the way!" i couldn't contain myself......that was a scary time, i almost pissed my self in public!

v6=less mpg.
mitsu= less time on the road+more time in shop
toyota,honda, nissan <stick to those, they wont let you down.
an integra with rota slipstreams would be great. also, look to see if honda has the equivalent of our se-r wheels. i couldn't be happier with my se-r wheels, light and good looking.
dont be fooled by the MASSSSSSS amount of cheap stuff you can get for the teg, it shouldnt be to much differant than tuning a b14. you get what you pay for, unless its used, or GB it wont be cheap.

Definately not the eclipse, STAY AWAY. I do not trust the Mitsu name, their "best backed cars" slogan is completely opposite from the truth. I don't even trust the Evo ONLY for that reason, I jus don't like Mitsu.

The Eclipse has to be the gayest car out there, even before F&F. It's an ugly bubble car that looks riced out from the factory, in the shop more than a Hyundai, can't handle any good engine mods.

Like I said before, The Integra is a VERY popular car for the ricers, but it does have very much potential if you have taste. I personally know 3 REALLY CLEAN Integras:
>Roommate that had a white TypeR, sounded GOOOODDD (dual resonated custom exhaust).
>Guy down the street has a red Integra only thing on the outside is bronze rims (teh hotness IMO)
>Car club member has a black GSR with an engine bay almost (;)) as clean as mine.

I also know 2 horribly riced out ones:
>In high school, a kid named Chris had a dropped (cut springs) Integra. His family was loaded and he used to try to show off against my stock GA16.
>Also, there's an Integra here I've nicknamed "Rainbow Sorbet" for the multi color combo he has chosen (faded peach paint on stock rims, rear bumper is mint green, side skirts are grey, front bumper is white with patches of grey bondo. The bumper is torn up already, it looks like he pulled the bodykit from a junk yard).

Well, contrary to all the bashing of Mitsubishi, I would suggest opting for the mid-1990's Eclipse/Talon AWD turbo. Those things can handle around 12 psi stock, and make amazing drag cars. All depends on what you want. BTW, to the person above that said the Eclipse can't handle any decent mods, I hope you were talking about the later models. I promise you that an AWD turbo will own that Integra. First mod with the Acura should be a Dart block lol. Then, save up more $$ and slowly build the motor to your specifics, not someone elses. Then, when it is all done, sell off the stock motor and those probably p.o.s. mods to a junkyard, and swap. That's what is happening with my Cavalier at the moment. Always start with an empty block if you have the $$$. Otherwise, check out some of the tranny stuff from Bully Clutches. IIRC, the stock Integra clutch doesn't have a whole lot of holding ability.

the 4g63 motor is a very good motor, despite what many say. And i dont understand why you would get a dart block when ive seen turbo Tegs with the stock block that are running over 400 hp, a Turbo magazine did an article on a silver Integra that was running around 550hp on the stock block with upgraded interals.

ok, so today i went to look at more cars, and now i have narrowed it down to two cars, a teg like i previously stated, or maybe a 240sx, not sure which is better looking though, the s13 or s14? also, if it doesnt have the sr already in it, is it really worth buying? do not say swap it, because i will not have the money to do it!!

i like s-14's myself, popup headlights are dumb. and the 2.4l thats in there can take some decent mods so there's no reason to swap the engine. engine swaps are for hardcore racers.

well, today i went and bought my car. it is a 1996 nissan sentra gle with sunroof, and manual transmission, with some five spoke fifteens on. i decided to stick with the sentra. my plans so far, are to paint the rims black, since the car is black, and maybe get some engine mods most def. :fluffy:
