tough break about the hood/bumper/headlight covers. You got enemies? Nice pickup otherwise.

Sucks that you got vandalized, but there's always a positive outlook from me. Now you have a better reason to spray the car satin black. Welcome, and read up!
My suggestions:
GT 2871
Ebay IC
MSPNP
FM Level 1 clutch
3" exhaust
RX7 550's

Then have the fastest car out of all your brothers.

i like the way you think i have def. been doing my research and she will def. be boosted by summer time. now i really want to build the motor b/c ive read the 1.6 can only handle so much boost and quite honestly, 5lbs of boost will not cut it for me! lol or should i just find a 1.8 and start off from there since it's a better platform b/c of their compression? hmmm so many other choices also... lol

If you read that a stock 1.6 will only handle 5lbs, then you must have been on clubroadster or something. Those kids don't have a clue.

The 1.6 will be just fine to build up. Just make sure you have one with a long-nose crankshaft. They can make 3 to 4 times their stock power when built properly.

Damn, looks like someone poured brake fluid on your bumper, what a douche.

Nice Subys, Welcome to the site, the info is in here.
