Ive been tossing up recently wether i should sell the ol EF clear some debt, and get a 5psd EB with the hope of going turbo...vroom vroom
But now i have had some interest in my EF, i having second thoughts.
Heres what i was originally going to do;
Sell EF- clear debt, and cancel insurance
Get EB/D, supra 5spd, and if engine is ok go a low boost turbo setup- with bigger brakes and better susp. Hoping for atleast 150rwkw, but wanting it to be closer to 180-200
If engine is a bit sus, get EF/L AU engine for it and put turbo on hold.
I should be abe to do this and still break even if i call in some favours.
And if turbo is more trouble than its worth, a big ass cam will do the trick
If i keep my EF and work hard over the christmas break
, i could clear the remaining debt on the EF, then start saving to mod it more. Maybe get a 5spd conversion to compensate for the turbo i missed :)
Which has left me looking at the pros and cons of both cars
Pro- EF; reliable, know its history, will last for ages if i dont do somewthing stupid
Con EF; Insurance$ (will insure because i owe money, and expensive to replace these ),
bit of debt, wont be anything special till mid-late next year.
Pro EB; it will be a turbo (and hopefully a 5spd at that), & i should break even, should be ready before summer holidays. Can then use work over holidays to replenish bank account
Con EB; wont be able to get insurance, may need maintance and other unforseen costs/problems, dont know history, will probably loose licence due to speeding fines and change my name to EBJase :D
Just wanting opinions as to what people think is the more sensible option?... other than getting a 4cyl untill i finish uni :)
Thought id ask the eseries folk, as u probably woild have had some experience in this field.
Ive got the Application for Modification sheets for the EB sitting in from of me, and its mighty tempting
