yea, i know. what about ca18? how much will it cost?

my budget for the whole project is below rm10k ... the lower wud be better of cos.

actually the engine need not be a turbo. NA oso can di, as long can jalan and got some power. Not gonna use it for drag or drift anyways...

FEEDBACKS & SUGGESTIONS ARE MOST WELCOMED!


thanks!
