I don't want to go with a Honda because of my previous reasons..

I'm not in the nicest area and theres tons of hondas out here and I don't want to have the risk of my car being stolen, also insurance tends to be more with hondas as they are a theft magnet, and I love my T-Tops =)

I would have the money to do the project, but as long as it wasn't gonna cost me a **** load in fabrication and just not a money project.. If I make an sense =P

Besides from searching k20 > Sr20 + t25 according to the posts...

Are you serious about doing this or just questioning it? The fabrication + engine will cost a good amount more than an NX2000 could even be worth. I still say do SR20VE or SR20DET if you wanna be fast or just SR20DE with I/H/E and other little tidbits if you wanna mess with the average streetracers. This would probably cost over $15k so I would suggest buying something newer if your heart is set on wasting that much money.

Well its either

350z = 20k and 10k for twin turbo + labor

Or its my Fav. FWD car with a crazy build.. I'm still debating

Of course the 350 will be faster but which will be more fun? I'm just seeing if its even possible.. Like I was trying to hint at I don't want like 5000+ In fabrication... I want something fairly simple that I can do in my back yard.

Well it's your money but I'm just trying to impart a little wisdom. :D

Go beat on someones 350Z and see which one gives you more smiles per mile. I sorta went through this with my old SE-R. I had a T25 kit off of an Avenir ready to go on the car but, sometimes I would break traction in top of first and in second gear just mashing it. The short gearing and torque of the turbo on a FWD just didn't make sense to me anymore. Then I drove a buddies Evo a few times and liked the idea of planting my foot and having traction and not to mention being able to do nice little drifts when I felt like. Ended up selling my turbo kit, parting out 200SX, and buying an Evo. I don't regret buying the Evo at all but do regret selling the SE-R.

Lol aye...

To be honest RWD cars scare the **** outta me especially when I like canyon driving... FWD cars I feel like I just have more control.. Bleh maybe I just need to play with some more RWD cars

Yeah I feel you on that. I have never taken a fast RWD into a canyon. I'd probably die.

Thats why I was debating on putting a k20 in because its a GREAT NA motor according to all the people, and I'm still driving a FWD car, as well as my NX =) And I already am really intune with the cars handling so yea..

I dunno lots to think about.. Straight line driving got boring

Yeah I leave the straight line **** to the V8 boys lol.

Cost to hp ratio between K20 and SR20DET is pretty big though. For the price of the K20 you can have a DET deathmobile.

I'd like to point out the lack of torque in the K20 though. I drove a EG Civic CX hatch with K20 putting out somewhere around 200whp/150wtq. It was fun but didn't give you a torquey kick in the ass. That aside I'm still doing a K20 hatch sometime but will definitely be a light Honda hatch like the EG.

isnt the k 20 vtec, if not disregard what im saying, if it is then dont compare it to the de, compare it to the sr20ve, a buddy of mine is mildly building a sr and expects aro0und 220whp, just my 2 cents

I love NX's... Mine was totaled and I look to buy another one if I don't get a newer model like a zx or a Z..

I figure the power gains will be better than a SR all day long and I still get to drive the car I love, meanwhile not have to worry about my car being a prime target of theft, as well as less suspicion from cops by driving a NX =)
werd, b'cause no ones gonna find out, and not steal it :rolleyes:
What happens when you get pulled over and you have a Honda motor inna ur kar, you'll look even more suspicious :rolleyes:

werd, so you're not in the nicest neighborhood, but you wanna spend thousands of dollars on a k20 swap. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
Puttin' a k20 in a Eg, integra cost around $5000, you will spend double
Motor mounts & Transmission mounts + custom wire harness + custom header +axles + shift linkage + ECU + MORE, all that for a N/A 2.0 and still only doing 15's at the track :rolleyes:

If you want a Removeable top, get a bumbaclot Honda Del Sol and swap a k20 inna dey.
:squint:

You just sound like a dolt, man.

Go buy a honda if you want a honda motor and drivetrain. Maybe you can get an S2k when you grow up.
Wow, apparently someone doing, or thinking about something, different from anyone else apparently deserves flak.

I appreciate the maturity. Now lets get back on topic, if you don't have anything useful to post, please don't clutter the thread anymore than it already is. Thank you.
