not picking on you, spaz. Just telling you to read the stickies. This topic has been covered a lot. So the search button and stickies are a good place to start.

hey doc..yeah some guys are just straight out forward and say wat comes to their mind without thinking. but at the same time they are right in a way but he could have just said here read these stickies this should help and also use the search button a lot of threads on here that can help you with your questions but if u fell like ur stuck just ask away...but donnt forget to mention that u did search the forums here if not they will bash you n say use the search button.

For your swap it all depends on how much time and money you are willing to spend. SRs are the most popular because they are cheaper and have more aftermarket parts for more fun..lol..for me im doing my research on a RB25DET swap.

We are not really trying to discourage you from modding, but it seems like just about everyone wants to the 15 conversion. IMO it's overdone, overrated, and overpriced, and it usually isn't done right.

when I posted it, it was my 4000th post lol.

what motor has your friend swapped?
You could swap in a dohc ka, then when you get more money slap a turbo on it.
2k is not enough to do a solid sr swap, unlesss you find some mad bargains.
