dude...you got enough money to make your tib surprise the hell outta anyone that might take you for granted and say "ohhh, a pos hyundai...easy" Then you'll show em. I say use most of the money to add some really large testicles under the hood, and the rest for some modest aesthetics work everywhere else around the Tib.

^^^^ I agree. If you invest it you can be one step closer to your dream car.... or early retirement.


Another thing that you might not want to forget is if you do decide to Turbo your Tib, you should make sure you have enough set aside for a replacement engine just incase. $10k is a nice chunk of money but these days it really is not as much as people think. If you invest it you can turn that $10k into $20k in time if done right

Take $5000 and go turbo. That will be enough money for an Alpine Stage 1 intercooled kit, installation, and tuning.

Then take the other $5000 and invest it, as said above.

You can have a stupid fast car and make your mom happy.

I Cant Go Turbo Due To V6 Engine And Dont Want Supercharge Due To The Fact That You Can't Turn Up Boost I Want Something I Can Have 500+ Hp And Not Too Much Money I Found A Twin Turbo 96 300zx For $6500 Obo . If I Get That For Say 4500 Then All I Need To Do Is Just Buy One Bad *** Turbo And Turn It Up

not quite as easy as buying a big turbo and turning it up... u might want to look into other things u will need to reach ur goal of 500 whp and ur car still work a month after getting there. clutch, injectors, what shape motor is in and if tune up is needed, what shape the transmission is in, what shape the suspension is in... 96 TT zx must have alot of miles to only be $6500 or something else is wrong. They are nice cars but no car can run forever esp with 500 whp

and y not just spend some money on some NA parts for your tib and invest the rest? Having money sitting around is nice... i am ready to go back to school and going this August and i can because i have $14k saved in a CD right now and half tuition reinbursemet through my work. sure that $14k could have made the Tib a beast but i think an education is better spent money

Education=more money


I agree with you 100000%


No matter what anyone says it is his money and he will do what he wants with it, lets just hope he makes the right choice. Cars are not everything

First of all, there is a turbo for the V6 - check out the Stealth turbo from NGM. Second, you can turn up the boost on a supercharger - get a smaller pulley. As for the 300ZX, that thing will have a ton of problems and stuff wrong with it if it's being sold for $6500

im sure he will end up doing what he wishes but hopefully the advice of others will atleast make him think...

If i had it to do all over again i would have saved more in highschool and gone to college. Having extra money is good if u can hold on to because we all know eventually u are going to catch a bad break and when u do that money is nice to have

not to mention, ur logic of some1 selling a 96 TTzx to you for only $4500??? I wouldnt want to slap a huge turbo on it (not to mention changing this from Twin to single system) it would go boom
