So how much would you sell your car for? Seriously....

You want a cheap NA project car? lol


My friend has a turbo e30, runs a 666fab manifold, a gt3076r, tial 38mm WG,turbo-back 3" exhaust, bigass FMIC, a funky BOV, home-built MS, and it was ******* fast on 12 psi. Made like 280 ft-lbs and 275 rwhp on a mustang with a god-awful tune. Spooled really quick too.

It's damn insane what the stock internals of a SOHC 6 cylinder can hold up to. The previous owner of the car made 475 RWhp on a stock motor O_O. Different manifolds and all that jazz, but damn!

If I got out of the miata world, I'd jump into the e30 world, lol.

you think an nc looks better than an s2k? I guess everyone has their own opinions, but I think s2ks look way better.

I am with Bond. The NC is a cool looking car. It will probably be my next hot rod.

The NC apperantly has a programable ECU. The S2000 is a massive PITA in terms of engine management in compairison.

Other than that I dont see any advantage to the NC personally.

I a hear the E30 thing. Though E36s seem better in every way from what I can see. Better suspension, steering, and they make great sleepers because they are still so common. A clean E30 is rare enough to look fast now.

The E30 M3 in my driveway is for sale. $10k. West coast car, rust free. Just welded a muffler on it yesterday so its streetable again There was some standing water in the trunk today so we punched a hole in the trunk floor to let it drain. Its a feature.

Of course ignore Lev's mani/dp in the foreground

Lovingly abused on the track for years by 3 drivers per event. Probably the most reliable track car i've ever seen/driven. Just needs an interior haha.

Except its a honda...

would defiantly rock an NC, they're super spacious and very comfortable. Looks 11tybillion times better than an s2000, and it won't get stolen just for the stupid engine...

I'd like an s2k. I think it is a beautiful 10 year old car.
