You should read alot, but basically its NA = Expensive, Turbo = cheaper. You can rebuild the motor with stock internals and build a decent turbo on a budget and push 200hp out reliably. There ar a tons of guys on here that can help further then I can.

I spent almost a year on here reading and searching and this topic has been covered ALOT lol. only in the last 6 mo have I actually started accumulate parts to build my car. Like you i am on a budget but want it to be reliable and fun to drive. I stuck with the N/A route and am about done with the build.

I spent alot of time searching prices, and reading reviews. I started out by tearing the engine down and buying the parts as i needed them or when i found a great deal.

Some of his details are in his build thread, maybe you'd find it if you searched!

I did.

Seriously man, check the FAQ's, read the stickies, and do some digging. Click the link in my sig I basically spoon feed people on how to search.
