Work is what I'm aiming for, though most people start their first cars with somthing that isnt covered in stupidly complex computers The idea of the cosmo is pretty cool, but after joining a jdm group I copped a fair bit of "douchebaggery" (its a word now, deal with it) so if I go for a badass Cosmo 20B, I just dont know if I can leave my Euro side alone, spose dad does still have his mk2 jag sitting in the garage

yea douchebaggery is a word all my mates are in the jdm scene, one actually organised the show and shine day on the strand called *** NQ a couple months ago so i know all about douchebaggery im the only euro admirer in my group of friends so yea lol but for the amount of money you would spend on a cosmo you could pick up something better IMO but thats me

should be in alright condition (since it costs to much to import Im hoping almost factory as well ) and it should have twin turbos for that 300hp (224kw) power! and by my maths, if a car can manage to come out of the factory with such a perfectly round number as 300, I think there is a little bit of potential to get it to 400hp no worries; bigger second turbo, better intercooler.... and maybe from a few of my dads "Rotary runners" friends I can side port it, I still dont quite undestand it but apparently that will make it go faster due to more airflow. Of course as guys have mentioned faster wearing seals due to the holes but it shouldn't be a problem. Also the one I saw in really rough condition, wouldnt cost more than 8 grand to buy if it wasnt one of less than 50 around, had 19" wheels and not lowered suspension, Which I would have to fix almost immediately, since they all sit rather "high" off the ground.

But then an e36 already has similar power without turbo, its here and its as old.... decision decsions
