Default NA to FWD TT. do you enjoy yours?

I just made a new topic about this. except this time i do not have mechanical questions or price and parts concerns. my set up will cost 1500$ and im going with a new front mount inter cooler to reduce knock a little. thats why mine is more pricey.

but i want personal opinions for those of you who have done the conversion. is it enjoyable. after you own it for a while and drive it. is it still a big headache every other day or are the bugs gone. do you enjoy your set up.?

do not tell me sell and buy a vr4. im sick of that.lol i want to beable to say i converted not sold out.

thanks in advance - Tim

Yes to all

Yes it's fun, very fun

Yes it's a headache

Yes you will start to realize you have zero traction.

If this is your only car then don't do it. If you have a back up car I say do it.

Dont sell the NA. Keep it. Dont convert it. Buy a TT and still just DD your NA.

I put nitrous on my NA and I was worned I would want more. I indeed did. So I said skip the conversion sold all the conversion parts and just got a TT. Cost for TT car was $1200.00. Billet DR650S AWD A blast to drive!
My NA would never have been this fun. I will still probably TT my NA one day just because. Oh yeah even with the nitrous no traction from a stop with just a 50shot. I could spin tires doing 70mph on freeway 100 shot and hit nitrous WoT. So NA no traction.

^ A properly set up fwd can get traction. There are fwd cars that will eat rwd cars off the line even on the street.

thanks to all who responded back. no this is not my only car . I have a 94 sunbird but thats being sold in the spring when i put my stealth on the road so i can find a better car for college in the winter.

I am not looking to drag race. or to race from a dig. I am looking for a fast car from 25-125mph I mainly go to car shows and when people see my engine bay their faces are priceless. people do not have these cars where i live and if they do 99% of them are POS rust buckets. this year when i go to car shows i want them to see a whole new beast with turbos, not that i sold it and bought a vr4. i see 2 other 3S cars a year out on the streets. my car has low miles and new paint and rims so selling is not an option in my book. I feel confident enough in my mechanics skills to do the conversion. plus i already have an safc2 that i know how to use. plus a performance radiator, TT plenum, solid mount, coil overs, and a 255 fuel pump. thats like 25% of the conversion already done (<-----this stuff is installed already)

the 3S chassis was designed first as awd, our weight distribution is very bad for fwd

I would keep the sunfire as your daily before starting. Even when your finished, I would recommend having another car. Just in case, plus you wont cut corners if something happens. You wont feel the need to rush because you have to work the next day.
