Welcome. There are "stickys" at the top of most sections in the forum that contain a lot of information and idea you might find useful. You might find some good DIY project ideas there to get you started.

Holy **** son, don't be like me. Pull those cojones out of the jar she's got them in and put a turbo on it like a man.

Or do like I'm doing, and just don't tell her it's a turbo. Yeah, that's right honey, that's part of the A/C system.

Welcome.

Put your location in your profile, people local to you might be able to help you out with your search. If you're planning to go turbo and don't have the budget for a '99, then a 94-95 is the next best choice. It's got all the benefits of the 1.8 driveline, is OBD1, and will be cheaper than 96+.
