The car in that video is old hat and ridiculously fast... I believe it is fully built and I don't feel like spending $80,000... we don't have enough Firebirds to hunt.

buss a steups and say ... "buy a stock EVO"
cause 300 on FWD < 300 hp on four wheels.
Don't duck... keep looking... don't bother with the above options...I can beat a stock EVO now... with $1.00 of premium, a coke and a smile.
HSI... talk nah... what is your input on the subject ?
To control costs, it's looks like this.. a stock block, forged internal B, stock sleeve and bore, stock cams and my own select mix of parts otherwise. I prefer to build an engine that can race on weekends or go to work every day.
Taking forever to finalize turbo selection but I have already narrowed to 3 options and this would be the deciding factor. Believe it or not, the turbo D will utilize the same options as the B would... (don't ask... I ent telling).
The K is just really tempting as the technology is good, a square engine just seems like a great building block... but that's all it will be for a while.... a building block.... but what a nasty block it would be. Bolt on 10hp here, tune in 20hp there... Honda really is the power of dreams... lol
Now here's the K20 porn.... I'll be actually looking at a straight K24a2. 200hp/160+ tq with a ITR transmission. Basic bolt ons, management and a 50 shot of nitrous on a stock longblock will put the car into the territory of a sub 300whp B series.
But nitrous doesn't fall out mango trees....
