    Good luck finding a first gen cummins for under 3k in any shape that would be considered "decent".
    Yeah, they go for a lot, but worth every penny. My first truck was Powerstroke, and I loved it, but after having my Cummins I could never go back to a V8 Diesel.

    If I where you I would get a 1st. Gen Cummins. Or an old IDI Ford, I guess I'm bias because I'm a diesel mechanic, but I have always, even when I was a child liked diesel over gas, and My first truck was a 1997 F-350 dually.

    Here is a good looking old IDI, and yes I would recommend diesel over gas any day in a truck. You can get so much more out of Diesel then Gasoline.

    Thanks for the input but I do prefer the more classic truck look then the trucks around the 80's - 90's

    Well if you like that classic style you could look for an old GMC/Chevy that had the 6.2 Detroit in them.

    If you're going to get a Detroit diesel be in for some disappointment -- Even the 80s power-sapped 305's were more powerful.

    Ugh, I can't really think of a car for under $8k that would do me good. I've strayed away from the bmw route and while I'd LOVE to get a lexus is300 the gas mileage is piss poor. I need a car that's good on gas, looks good, and has modding potential.

    What are the best spark plugs i could get for my d17a1 civic? I've been looking at NGK plugs but i don't really know anything about this. This question is more directed towards Bradley because he seems to be the honda guru. Also, what about new wires (to the spark plugs), how much would that cost, would it be worth it, and is it easy enough to do? I'm hopelessly learning about this stuff as much as i can.

    Edit:

    I should add, i don't expect to see huge gains from doing things like this. I just like the feeling of having the best parts for my car.

    That is true. That's why I could go with the 8.2 Detroit, but his limit is $3,000. But both the 6.2 and 8.2 don't even compare to the 5.9/6.7 Cummins and the 7.3 IH engines, both IDI and DI.

    But keep in mind I'm very bias because I am a Diesel mechanic and have always drove one. But if you ever own a diesel, you will probably never look at a gasoline engine the same again.

    Plain cheap NGKs and oem replacement plug wires. You'll see no gain from anything else with stock coil/ignition intact.

    I get it, I just like that instead of the normal "does not run", they put "Ran 15 years ago."

    for 800 USD, is it worth it... Im guessing it has interior water/mold damage and that the body is going to need a lot of TLC. The engine is going to be the biggest money pit I see with this car.

    My dad's watching Fast and the Furious in the waiting room of the shop and sitting back here I can hear that one part of the movie with the Dope song.

    That's always been my favorite part.
