Give more details on your car and your budget.



Bridgeporting will affect emissions. You wont pass, period. It will also affect drivability, if its a daily, I wouldnt recommend it.

Yes, you can daily an SP engine. BUT, read this first.

And in the end, it will never run as well as stock until you have changed everything, and everything is designed to work well together, just like a stock car. Im getting close to the drivability of a stock car now, with considerably more power, but there is not a single thing I havent modified, changed, tweaked, or replaced to get there.


Modifying a car is merely shifting compromises. Youre not making things better overall, youre making them better for you. BUT, everything you change will throw off the compromise of everything else, and the car will never have the same balance of compromise as a stock car until you change EVERYTHING.



With every mod I ever did, I lost some drivability. It took a standalone to get that drivability back, along with everythign else I had to change/replace/modify.

Its like that with everything, just more with a rotary. I want a bone stock low milage engine to drop into the 7. I plan to add a cold air intake and a nice vroom vroom loud exhaust. Then comes all the cosmetics.

It matters what type of SP also. Like Ito puts it. From mild to the wild.



I agree. Only things I will be doing is intake and exhaust right now. All I can afford. And then paint and new interior. New clutch and pressure plate since it is something I want to do. A B&M short shifter, cause I have some piece of **** flopping around like a dead fish gear shifter. It sucks.



But a Bridgeport can be streetable. If you can have a streetable 12a Peri-Port done, you can certainly do a BP.



Good luck deciding.

Streetable is all in your own prefrences, some poeple cant deal with a louder exhaust, some people cant deal with a light flywheel, and some people cant live with a bridge or PP engine. its all your own descretion.
