      $1500 to spend

      I have a 16 turbo sport. I have $1500 to spend. Looking to get my most out performance out of my money. I only have done a few cosmetic things so far.
      How would you spend it?

      Find a way to drop a SRT4 Skittle 2.4 Turbo in these things. Then, you would have a rally machine.

      Put the money in a money market account so it can grow instead on going to waste since you can't do much with a 1.4 Fiat Abarth motor in a 3300 lb tub.

      Anyone know where to get a larger intercooler. I attempted to order one from Sila concepts but they ran my card twice then emailed me saying they dont carry them for the dart anymore.

      Don't waste your time with that intercooler... It's WAAAAAY to big for our engines. It almost triples the pressure systems volume. Just go with an intercooler from eBay... That's what many people, including myself, have done. It is cheaper and easier. When it come right down to it... And intercooler is an intercooler and the only thing that changes is the size/volume.

      Is there a build page so I can get a idea of what parts I might need to get my hands on?
