first of all, PRIORITYS, where do they lie? second of all, I (as a mechanic) have two problems with your choice of car,(turbo & nos)with a turbo you have to have a really good cooling system and you have to give it time to cool after driving it (which most people dont do) and unless the engine was built (lower end) for the extra stress , it wont last
with any car/motorcycle/quad/boat/whatever, anytime you start making it a hot rod you spend lots of money making it faster with a shorter life, do yourself a favor, buy a nice little Honda or Toyota,keep it stock and when you want to go fast, get a quad or bike you can take off road,that way when you wreck, you only hurt yourself , and dont kill anyone else
toyota's are good cars, I dont suggest a turbo for anyone, yes they run strong but for your first car get something that wont cost an arm and a leg to fix, Hondas are good cars and kinda sporty, but remember the sportier the car the more money you will spend on insurance
raptor rider- my friend Ray has a 93 Mazda RX-7 w/a twin turbo...nothin wrong with it, no more maintanaince (sp?) than a regular car, but it's a rotary engine, and he has shot the rotary seal in it once. The nice thing is the turbo doesn't hit till about 3800 rpm, so u can shift w/o hitting the turbo, and it doesn't seem like it's all that much of a car till he's cruisin at like 50mph in 5th...just chillin and then drops it to second and punches it and then clicks into third and before you know it your doing 90 on a single lane road and the cars shadow hasn't caught up w/it yet [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] i would go for the supra dude.
get a quad man going fast off road is more fun than on road
my friends dad had a dodge colt with a turbo and nitrous oxide...very fast car and i guess it held together very well because the bottom end for them was originally from a diesel engine...but his mom put 87 octane in it and it blew up..women drivers...
