    you'll be getting a faster car, older chassis. It's personal preference really, if it's a clean car and runs good (ie, swap done properly) and you like the 92-95 style I'd say go for it.

    I think you'd be dumb NOT to do this trade. The older chassis is lighter, the engine has more potential for power and more build options, and pre-1996 cars are much easier to tune. If you don't mind the older body style then I see nothing but positives here...

    Why would more room under the hood make it a better vehicle? :huh:

    Do you plan on shoving a humongous engine in there?

    :werd: even if you were to turbo the D or B, the 92-95 chassis still has plenty of room to do so. Even an SC will fit under there.

    No, you should be fine. You can even keep your a/c and power steering if you want...
