First of all i love my accord. I love the comfort, styling and roominess. But, i am very unsatisfied with the performance! I know i shouldnt have gotten an accord if i wanted performance, but originally i was going to drop an h22 in it. Well, i spent most of my extra cash, and my parents wont let me get a new engine because they say my engine is fine.( still in highschool.) I am thinking of selling the accord for around 9k and getting a new project car. I will have about a 10g's after selling the accord. I am thinking of getting a civic and either swaping the engine or going turbo. What i want to know is what would you guys do in my situation? If you would could get a new project car what would it be? I know there is a post like this, but i have a budget and those guys are saying all expensive cars. Oh i am looking to run about 14's in the 1/4 mile.

well, civic would be your cheapest bet but turbo can also be expensive? i know turbo is cheap and fast but you do know a civic cant handle a turbo right? for some reason most people dont know this. you have to replace so many parts to maintain a good health civic with a turbo. (i dunno what parts, i aint no mechanic)

i guess its cause i love my car too much to put anything in it that would diminish its life.... :D

i am thinking about getting a prelude. Do you guys think that it would be cheaper to find a low mileage prelude or a high mileage s or si model and swap an h22 in it? I hear that these can run high 14's stock, is this true?

if you want to start a new project car on a budget and you arent too concerned about looks, pick up a used 92-93 cx hatch and swap a motor in there. Then you could pick up a turbo kit and run a safe amount of boost and run high 13's probably.
