 Auto Cross Racing
So ive always always wanted to do autocross racing...and ive seen a few on here that did the racing...I know I will be putting in the 2.5 de but I might go to the ze now since that yard out does not give any warranty on complete engines.

All depends on what the courses are like and what is your driving style. You've never done it, so I would suggest to get out there, enjoy it, and if there's something in the car that you feel need improvement, you improve it. Like I had the B&G springs (back when they had the V6 springs), but thought they were too soft and went with the H&R's, but despite them being stiffer, I understeered significantly more, while with the B+G's I could get the rear to swing out, it was great fun.

Search for ProtegeSTS's posts, they're old but he was a hardcore autocrosser back in the day.

Autocross is great fun.. I have been doing it for almost 7 years now... Check out my klg4 swapped 323 build thread it will give you a good idea what you need to do to be competitive..

Have a good look at the rules and figure out if you want to be competitive or just race for fun and how much money you want to spend

to sum up a couple things... A de/ze motor swap puts you in the same class I run in... it's called street modified front wheel drive... It's the kind of class you can sped a lot of money in and still not be competitive. . All though I am doing well with my build...

Lowering springs and shocks won't cut it... alignment, suspension set up and tires are extremely important.. talk to other autocross racers for the best advice...

Most of all have a lot of fun...
