This statement is funny and not funny at the same time. I bought an $1800 94 in good mechanical shape but body and top bad. thinking drop some money make it fast don't worry about the looks. Now I am thinking I have $5k in turbo, computer, wheels , tires, suspension. and now i am thinking crap i have a fast miata but she sure is ugly. At the end of the day it will always just cost you.
I have friends who are into older Porsches. They always say no matter what 911 you buy it is going to cost you $25k. You can buy a perfect example for $25k or you can find one for $5k and drop $20k into it.
I agree with the reading there is a sticky that will walk you through what you need to buy then come back with specifics. but just to keep my typing skills up.
I have a 94 right now at 200hp. I try to forget how much things cost.
kit $3500 this was header, turbo, intercooler, all the piping. This could be done cheaper and where you could save some money.
injectors $150ish i think.
my exhuast was choking me so that was another $200 - 250
so right therei f you go basic kit what it took me to get to 200hp on a conservitive tune.
