just a question, if i were to build a daily driver 300 whp car, pump gas, do you think it would be wise to upgrade my pistons and rods? i can build a 300 whp car before christmas and then i would save for ppg tranny in 2008 summer and then finish it off with full suspension (coil overs, volks, carbon drive shaft everything) the following christmas, making my car a 1.5 year long project,
After that should i look into pistons and rods? i was hoping that by 2009 summer i can finish my car off with a carbon hood, carbon trunk, carbon mirrors, basiclly lighten up the whole car, but if the stock pistons and rods will die out before my tranny then maybe i would do those upgrades first.
I know ALOT deals with driving habits so ill let you guys decide, im 19 years old, spend 2 years building my eclipse, when i build things i build it right and i definately take my time, i LOVE to baby my car when i have passengers and just regular driving, I LOVE to drive hard when its the middle of the night and no one is on the road, its like drugs, you cant do it all the time but when you do once in a while it definately feels great. so i maybe drive my car hard every other day for maybe 5-15 minutes, nothing special just a little spiritual driving to help me remember what i did to the car.
I dont street race, i dont drag race at the track, i dont autocross, however i do LOVE this mountain pass nearby and its very fun to drive in the middle of the night, and thats about it.
sorry to jack the thread if i did =/
