    hmmm, i don't like those wheels. and that motor is only rated at 170hp and 160 ft/lbs? that's pretty shitty for a turbo motor. i make that much all motor. personally i think i could spend the 18k in a much more efficient way.

    The words 'never been raced' in an auction are the first signs that a car has been ragged on.

    yea, you could make much more power than that NA, but you gotta compare the power curves. And with factory turbos, its easy to turn the boost up safely and put down nice numbers if the chip is done right.

    or have the turbo ported, upgrade the injectors, turn up the boost, and tune just a tad and have even better numbers.

    i've seen a few of those things at autox, and they really don't perform well at all. sooo much body roll, underpowered, and just in general, a big ass car.

    not worth 18k at all IMO

    The Protege has always been a piece of shit car. My dad have one back in the day and it lasted maybe 5 years. The thing just fell apart.

    def not worth 18k, i remember when they first came out when my mom bought her Tribute, i drove one, and the sticker was 20k... i will say this though, they handle pretty good, the interior is awesome and the sound system is great.

    hmm.... i thought they were quite stiff for a factory fo-do. and the power sucks as of restrictive IC and Exhaust. FMIC, TurboBack exhaust, and a boost controller and you are goin. i think the stock boost setting is 6 or 7 psi. and can be safely bumped to 11-12.

    Turbo has a project speed protege. the used Ion Performance (not saturn ion) put on a fmic, intake, turbo exhaust and one-piece DP, boost controller (set at 10.29 psi) and came out with 220whp. not too bad for under under 2 grand.

    I'm with Scott on this one, those cars are sweet. They handle as good as or better than an Integra Type-R and come with an awesome limited slip. Plus, like stated before, that motor is severely bottlenecked by the IC and it's plumbing along with a peashooter exhaust. They make decent power when the boost is upped as well.

    Don't listen to B, he's probably doing his usual armchair analysis. :D
