More upgrade questions

K so in the long run I want to turbo my SH but that is a little ways down the road, what can I do in the meantime? A couple of guys said I would lose my headers and intake when I put the turbo on so I want to do upgrades that won't get lost when the turbo goes in.

Re: More upgrade questions

uhh, there's not too many parts that are compatible with both F/I and N/A.

just start saving for boost now. it'll be well worth it in the long run.

x2

But a few things that you can mess around with is a clutch/flywheel combo, LSD (I am not sure whether or not SH's come with LSD), and I hear there a few places that make final drives for h22's (helps acceleration most of the time, hurts top speed) and you can always work on suspension in the mean time.

Other than that, start putting your money towards the turbo/build. Bigger injectors, a turbo manifold, all kind of stuff that when it does come time, you have all the parts at hand.
