So, It's been awhile guys. Sadly, that's because I sold my legend because I was having so many problems with it, with the over-heating. While losing my job I couldn't afford to keep attempting to fix the problem, Although... The problem was a constant mystery. I replaced the Air intake (Random) as-well as the Water pump, radiator, hoses, temp gauge, and also rebuilt the entire top end of the engine. I gave up. Sold it.. :snipe:
Now, that I have a steady job again and I have a sufficient amount of income coming back in, I currently own a 2001 Mustang GT, yes, I'm 18, yes, I'm a car enthusiast. I don't care about this "Muscle vs Import" stuff, I could honestly care less.
(((((Scroll down to the ============ section ============= to get to the main question))))
I'm coming back to purchase another Acura legend, 2nd gen. I loved this car. There's nothing I would change about it. Besides power. I'm also a speed junky. I'm not about wreck-less driving though. More or less about Highway pulls (0-80) and the drag-strip here in Houston.
I'm looking for a 3.5L motor for this car, preferably something I could get in there without too much trouble. I'm going to purchase a car that already had a type2 in there, but I want something new. Durable. Something I KNOW I can rely on before going into the modification process. I have someone down here that races professionally and builds muscle cars, they are in my mind "Master Mechanics". They are going to help me build a turbo kit, I want to make sure I have a sturdy engine, that will stand strong to AT-LEAST 500 HP. I'm trying to get a build list going so I can get a complete price for what I'm going to be looking at as far as
- new engine
- Custom turbo
- Fuel Injectors
