    Welcome ma'am =)

    So what kinda power figures you had in mind? 'Cause if you aren't going too crazy I'd say your best bet would just be something simple: NA-T with upgraded fuel side and a piggyback. Then just throw a good 'ole R154 under there, it's a lot easier to fit under than the Getrag. So it'll be an easier upgrade and less time(money) consuming.

    Just some food for thought... :biggthumpup:

    I think I have seen that car before.. A friend of mine had a color similar to that here in Bremerton (washington) It is kind of a rare color as far as I have seen.

    But welcome! interested to see in all you put into it. Not many girls into vip movement, let alone in the states.

    @ Kouki Monster: Yeah, I got the car from some white kid, haha. And he got it from some guy before that? Idk...I traded this coupe i had for it...soo now thats its been *****d around...Its mine. Hahah, I plan on replacing the bumpers, windshield, ligthing, and indash within in the month. It looks reallllllllly rough right now...But thats the fun part right? Before and after.

    @Juzzo: True very true! Any build is time consuming! And since this is my daily, I prefer not to drive the type r all the time, I would only like to have it out of order for a short amount of time, since I plan on respraying it too.

    I have found a couple motors here and there, but my cousin owns an import company, so within the next year I am going to venture to Japan, for 'Business' and find a couple goodies for myself :)

    Welcome to the board... dont get in over your head with the build and plan it out to a tee from start to finish and it will end up looking/driving nice. If you just start throwing parts, conversions ect into it you will end up hating your results.

    You may also want to check out how built autos drive are they are a ton of fun and still practical for daily driving.

    I am keeping the stock bumpers, and just adding lips, I do not want to get to crazy. Because this is my first VIP, I want to be able to afford to replace anything rather quickly if I do mess something up haha. Im a college kid ballin on a budget.

    "Ballin on a budget" - funniest oxymoron to be said as of lately... Yea there are alot of inexpensive lip options as well as sideskit options. Rear lips not soo much...

    So would it be a rear lip, or valances?

    Haha yeah, I heard it awhile ago and thought it was funny...

    I would keep it simple at first i.e. wheels and suspension.. and then focus on like aero and other mods

    Its not so much aero as it is replacing the broken bumpers. And if I am going to get the bumpers now, I may as well get the lips so I have them when I do paint you know? This car needs a lot of TLC, but with time she'll be a neck breaker.

    Naw not from bremerton. but moved around a lot around the area. still here though lol! Hard to keep people in this area with cool cars. they keep leavin all the time so hard to get meets. Use to have a lot of sick 240s and skylines and rarities, probably more per capita here than any major city in washington.
