lol,these kids today and their lil toys. The problem is all the money it takes to get those engines to perform and hold together.All well built 4cyl made to last will be $8000-$10000 and then it will have traction problems that are hard to overcome.lol  I can build a car for $10000

that sounds like the normal build!!,,LOL   Buy the car for $1500 and then spend $10000 making it go. Then you have paint,interior,tunes,tires,wheels,etc. Then  you sell it for $5000

I dont know the four cyl cars are great tranport but come on thats just to much money to spend. For the same some of these guys put out I could not only build a head turner with great power but put a down payment on a house to keep it in and the car would not lose value. Oh well people will do stupid things to stay trendy I geuss.  
Speed is just a question of money how fast do you want to go?

some are more worried about what others think instead of thinking for themselves

ok, my brother-in-law got his riceburner back yesterday. they did tear the motor down & rebuild it. said it has eagle rods & a polished crank. says hell run me at sunshine[ 1/8 th mile track] or, bradenton[ 1/4 mile], on a test & tune night. his n.o.s. is disconnected, but says hes gonna use a 25 horse shot to spool the motor up. whoever built his motor did a nice job. whoever put the turbo on was a rookie. looks real cheesie. welds not finished on the intake tube. a spark plug wire was hanging loose from the cap. the blow-off valve bracket is lose on the intake tube. you can turn it 360 degrees! i wonder if its even getting any boost with all the leaks? lol. so now i gotta tig up this terd before i can spank him. this should be hilarious. dont worry, well get lots of pics of this one, for a good laugh.
