Idk what to do.... help guys, turbo or swap?

Alright, i got a turbo made by garrett t3/t4 hybrid sitting in my garage

but i got in an accident and it's gonna cost me about 600 to repair my car...

but im thinkin im just gonna leave it wrecked, and just fix any internal work i might need, like alignment and such...

But i have a really nice, brand new turbo sitting in my garage, and im not gonna have money to put it in for a very long time anyway, cuz i owe my dad alot of money, about a grand.

so im in a predicament... should i sell the turbo? and just save up for a k20a type-r swap? also, would an h22 jspec fit in our car? **** idk what to do... im really confused, almost discouraged with my car...

any advice?

yo, just to let you know, you should close this thread, there are alot of *******s here who will get pissed off at your questions.


However... I am friendly and will tell u some advice...The k20z1/a3,a2 all work, the cheapest way to go is to do a k20a3 with a a2 head, you can also use the search button and research the frankenstein k24 build up, which involves a k24 block and k20 head. As for the h22 it will not fit our car, unless you do some custom work. And plus h22s dont like boost. I woulkd opt for the k2o, and later build it for turbo when u get the money.

The h22 will work in our cars, but thats the thing, the H22 is huge. Its a tight squeeze for our cars, ive only seen one, and it looked like his engine couldnt shake its own nuts if it had too. As for the main question, i say save up for a swap and then keep it N/A not too big on boosting.

yeah thats a good idea, if u want to control the budget and still make big n/a numbers, do a frankenstein k24 build, ive seen it in a rsx that smashed porshces, think about having that in your vic'.

save up for a swap. if you get the k20 you'll start off with about 200 hp. on a stock engine.

dont do the turbo, your just gonna build up a shitty engine and be dissapointed with the end result. its too much money for little hp.
