$10000 Sleeve the block, the sleeves, titanium retainer/springs, forged pistons(same compression ratio), ECU, dyno time, cam shafts, match port cylinder, oh yeah...and the turbo kit. If it's not a kit, you need an intercooler too. hoses, t-clamps, yata, yata, yata...

more...clutch that can handle the power, flywheel (just while you're at it), and don't forget the brakes...after all you need to eventually STOP when you go that fast.

if you get a lightweight flywheel say 8 lbs will that be a bad idea or shouls you stick with a 12 lbs one?

you can go with a light one. the real question is...how you goin keep that badass on the ground. you can dump a lot of money in your engine...just to spin tires.

i'm trying to solve that problem. if you guys know a manufactuer that makes an engine torque damper for us...HIT ME UP

Icon8 Blew engine...what to do...

I had a similar problem with my stupid prelude lol. It won't start to about 3 days and a mechanic came over and added new spark plugs. The car started. I took it out for a test drive..drove fine at first. I noticed white smoke coming from my exhaust..I figured it was water or it was burning fuel. Kept driving. Got to a red light and my car started to tremble..then turned off. I got it back on after a few tires. Drove it back to house but had to rev the engine every time I stopped to keep the car on. When I got home there was water in my engine and apparently someone did a patch job on my radiator and quick fix got into my engine also. The water was boiling, there was stem coming out of my oil. It was toasted. The car starts but my light is on and of course I'm not driving it. Could it of been my head gasket? I've only had the car now for 2months!!!! Should I fix it or turn it back in? Do they finance engines? or rebuilds?
