Well, I'm probably getting a '91 FC, but it needs engine repairs or a new engine. I've been given a few idea's on what to get already, but I still wanna find some more options before I buy. Does anyone have any suggestions? If so, can you include the general cost, it'd help alot. Thanks

Noone has any suggestions? I find that hard to believe... Come on, someone's gotta have an idea. Well, so far the best one I've heard was to replace the 2 rotor with a 3 rotor twin turbo instead of fixing it. How much would that cost? Well...If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks....

this question is too general, try to get more backround info on the car to diagnose what may be needed to replace.



depending on your budget a 20b conversion will take some big bucks. if you have an extra $2k or so laying around think about getting a mazda remake, is would be the best way to go especially with a warranty. what exactly do you want from this car anyway?

Well...the engine has 144k miles on it, and burns oil and coolant above 3000 rpms because the seals are broken. Other than that, not much else needs to be done. Maybe a new clutch, but the priority is the motor, and I don't want to buy until I know what I'll get done and how much it will cost.

Oh, to answer your question BigTurbo74. Basically...I want a good amount of speed and power, but I also want to try and keep it as light possible so I can also drift well. And I don't have much money right now, so I'd like to keep it as cheap as possible without greatly reducing performance.

drift=need LSD.. harder compound tires help for beginners..balance is key..go read initial d..



you also need a safe place to do it, and cash for tires.



if begining drift, make friends with used tire guys and suspension shops..need minimal movement in the suspension
