yea, type-s swap completely and turbo it ORRRRR you can turbo it and get the level 10 tranny build up, with a stage 2 and lvl 10 you will be pretty damn upstoppable because the auto tranny will be able to handle the high level boost. With the stage 1 im hoping to be making around 240-250 WHP at 7 psi, they dont recommend going any higher cause the tranny will die quickly. When i save enough im going for a build up and 10 PSI, and eventually a stage 2.

Dang man, you look like your on the same track as me, just a little ahead. I need to get some rims, a system, and then look at saving up for the turbo and level 10 upgrade! Good luck with yours! :thumbsup:

Too bad your not local, we could go to the track and womp on fools! :D

I believe he is looking to stay auto guys...so telling him to swap is kinda pointless.

Anyhow, You definately have enough money to get where i wanna go...Have your tranny upgraded by Level10 so that it can take whatever you want to throw at it. The Go Cybernation stage 2, or three is you want to go balls out...You will definately have enough power if you go that route...if not too much power! omg Good luck with that! :thumbsup:

350Z or wait for the Nissan R35 GTR's (awd)
350Z youd still have nearly 23,000 left to mod with, and that would take you a VERY long ways in terms of 12 sec runs

Assuming your car is in good to excellent condition you can sell it for at least 16 to 17 thousand. Sell it and you will have over 40,000 to buy a car thats fast.

Dont waste 25 grand on a base auto rsx.
