SO, im looking for a eg hatch or coupe, boosted..swapped or the d16 doesnt matter. thats all im looking for, motor work. i dont care about stereos or shfancy rims or body kits. motor and suspension work, and a decent body. ill have right around 5k to play with, so if anyone has anything like this let me know...in the central/southern oklahoma or central texas area. thank you.

    Cool. You're in Lawton... I was in Duncan for a year working for big bad Halliburton. You might try looking up Elliot Byers (if you can find him) in Duncan. He's always shopping around for Hondas in the area. The last I heard, he was working at the Family Dollar distribution center there in town.

    now im not looking to buy an evo because im poor, but does the MR have that much more than the regular evo does to make the price jump like it does?

    IMO no. the regular evo is actually a little lighter (because of smaller tranny and no HID's) the aluminum roof on the MR only saves 8lbs, but since its from the very top of the car its nice for center of gravity. the tranny has shorter gearing for the 6speed. the lighter bbs wheels are nice. but in all i dont think it justifies the 5k jump in price. 5k in mods to a regular evo8 is a much better decision i think. :)

    found this on auto trader, im going to call and find out more about it; the ad isnt very descriptive. its about 170 miles from where i am. 10k doesnt seem to bad for the setup, i dont think. hopefully going tomorrow to check it out. any comments/suggestions??
