2500 can be spent in a heart beat with a good set of coilover springs $750-1500/shocks and springs $450-750. Intakes $120-400. Headers $100-250/y-pipe $40-120. Exhausts $150-450. Wheels $500-6000.

All of which what YOU want. So prices may vary...but, since you want JDM..thats going to cost you a pretty penny. G/l on your quest bro.

nice carrr, N/A is okay but seriously your probably better off saving for something more substanal like booost, 2500 sounds like a good start to saving for it if thats the route you want to go.

Welcome! If you are allowed internet at work you will find yourself here more often that you'd like.

You can find s/c and turbo's here in the for sale section around 2-3K, but I have also seen new vortech s/c kits for a little over 3K, like from this site:

www.IntensePower.com - Drag - Drift - Street - Show

They have some good IS parts on there.

Read the GO FASTER forum to see the costs associated with boost, you will find that it is quite more than the kit itself. The turbo kits seem to have more hp potential though...

Good Luck!

I wouldn't necessarily go with what is cheap. There are a lot of great turbo kits that are in the for sale section right now that are a awesome prices. I personally like turbos better than s/c, but that is just personal preference. But if you want to go the turbo route, keep checking the market place and I am sure that you can get a good deal.

Yeah, and there are tons of s/c vs. turbo threads to keep you busy. You will have two trains of thought (keep in mind that these are not my opinons, rather the gist of it) :

1. S/C are more reliable (which has been debated mucho mucho times,) but usually do not make the power a turbo can
You can find youtube videos of turbo vs. s/c IS's and the turbos usually are quicker

2. Turbos make more power and can be reliable, and the 2JZ is a turbo motor.

Have fun. Throw a pizza in the oven, sit back, and prepare to be info overloaded.
