I got a 02 Civic Si.

Nothing done to it worthy of listing right now, I am also relatively new to all this.

I am wondering the best route to take. Any input would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Vague....

I'm basically interested in hearing from someone who has done this themselves, maybe made some mistakes they could tell me about so I don't do them as well. Maybe which parts, setup, all that would be the "Best Recommended" method.

You're right, I apologize for that...

I would like to turbo it eventually, I want the car to be my daily driver but also be able to achieve at least mid 12's. It's not super super fast but I would like it to be a real practical daily driver as well.

Should I just save up and do it all at once? Or...?

Thanks.

I'm also interested in building up the entire engine. The engine I have now has 130K on it but it's highway miles, it runs great no problems and all that but I would like to get a really solid, strong, reliable engine as well.

Your best option is to pull the A3 out, sell it and slip in a K20A2 w/6spd and ECU. That was the best mod I did with my EP3.
That was my original plan but it is quite pricey, and then to turbo it from there and get a good legit tune I'd be looking at another 4 grand most likely.

So about 4500 for the swap and 4000 for the turbo and tune and all that, I'd be looking at 8k+

But, I believe I can build the block and everything for that kind of money, what would be better?

I'm not too interested in doing an NA setup, I plan on definitely boosting it, but I also want this car to be pretty practical and my daily driver.

I know not every 2 cars are the same, but I am looking for someone else who has either boosted the a3 or swapped an a2 and what else they did with it and what they're putting down to get a rough idea then go from there.

I understand I have high mileage on my engine, but does anyone know what I could get for my entire a3 swap? If I could get a decent little bit I might actually just follow through with my original plan of doing the a2 swap.
