Default another noob

hello all. just found this site, but truthfully, have never looked, but im here now and thats what counts. im wanting to turbo my NA, so i got a lot of reading and research to do before i start spending the bling. i have a 93, i was building it to race spec m in scca, but now i have decided i dont want a dedicated racecar, but would rather have a fun street car. the car already has the spec m suspension, brakes, tires, braided lines, new motor ( well it was new when i put it in 3 years ago, only has ~20k miles on it now ). so i think i have a good platform to have a little more hp. i would like to think i could find another 75 streetable hp in the motor. can it be done, dont know, still have to research. anyway, look forward to talking with everyone!

Yes welcome. If you do good enough research you can have a really fun nice car with your your goals for super cheap. Projects are always so much more fun when they don't break the bank. Welcome!

i dont know what budget im after. i know i dont want to toss 10k at it, and i know it will be more than 100$. its been a fun project getting the car where it is today. just time to go to the next level.
