tech wrench Best Mods for HP on a B18....

Ok im gettin ready to drop 7k on a swap and whatever goodies i can get. What do you guys reccommend that i do. I was gonna go custom turbo. But one of the shops around here said that whether is was a day a month or a year i was gonna burn a piston. So i figured i would go N/A then if i just had to i would maybe put a small shot on it. BUt id rather not. So what can i do with this money and how much hp can i expect?

The guy is just a scare monger. A turbo done with care and quality parts and looked after will not significantly shorten your engine life (In some cases, it might even lengthen it, because you're not reving so hard to go up hills etc - but that's not likely if you're building it to race, instead of tow.)

If you like turbos, then a turbo is an honest way of getting power.

If you want the same power with NA, your car won't be a daily driver.

well..a turbo kind of scares me to be honest. Cause the closest place is 4 hours away. Plus ive just been sponosored and can't handle down time if that happens. I really don't know anything about turbos. I know how they work and such but i don't know the logistics and specs. Pretend im a 10 year old and tell me what i need to get. What i can get for the money and such. I mean im shooting for 250 to 300hp.... what can i obtain with that money?
