Build Ideas
« on: Oct 31, 2019, 08:01:08 pm »
So, being pretty new to all of this, I'm wondering what are some things I can do that are relatively cheap? I'd like to have something in mind so I can start saving the  money for it. All I've got for now is a planned trans swap, but I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do for a little cheaper.

With any cars, wheels and tires will make the most profound effect on handling performance. The manual will definitely help make things a lot more fun. :)

LSD! and a v8 swap.

For reals, with how affordable LS400s are it makes for a really clean swap. Frank's 1UZ swapped GTS looks like it was a factory option, so nice.

Thanks for some ideas, I'll look into the wheels some more. As for the V8 swap I'll think about it, but I think I may wanna just keep the engine in for now and try my hand with some mods and upgrades  :heh: but thanks again all
