    I know of a 95 integra GSR w/ITR front end & engine for sale for about $12,500 if you're interested. The car is clean.

    PM me if you are...

    if you've got 14k to spend don't get a honda, get like an mr2 turbo, or 240 and turbo it. I don't totally regret all the money i have dumped into my car, but it could have been spent in a lot better ways (other cars)

    you can pick up a 91-94 mr2 from around 3-6k and use the rest on upgrades.

    I think he your going to spend 14k do a eg k series build up. As the other routes for cars to bad things about the mr2 and the 240, you will get killed with insurance. A subaru isnt always a bad idea.

    eg hatch < 3000 EASY
    b18c swap ~ 3500
    wheels/tire/suspension ~ 1500

    turbokit/custom setup ~ 3000

    and you still have a few gs left over for a pair of slicks, or some axles or whatever. and you have yourself a low 12, high 11 second car.

    Probably get flamed for this but if you are worried about just drag racing and getting to and from work/school then the VW GTI 1.8t is a decent car. 500 in mods will get you almost 200 whp. Biggest problem would be weight though.

    h22 swap, for like 3k shipped from hmotorsonline.com
    axels ~ 400ish
    hondata and some tuning
    you could 75 nos it
    then you have lots left to spend on the other things. ya know, cosmetics. or, you could buy one of these and install it in an EG. holy hell. if you wanted the easy way out that is.

    EG = 4k for a high number
    then the <evil boostable> B16 is 7100 with sleeves and everything else. then you have spent 11,000. leaving you with 3k for turbo evilness. tada.

    get a hatch or crx and go with a jdm b16 which is anywere from 2500 to 3500 for the motor u can get any crx or hatch for 2500 up to 4000 then dump all the rest into the b16 id say and a2 with hydro transmission its a perfect motor for an turbo build up do to low compression ratio with 7000 or more left for motor mods u can get all your internals head and botom block work cams 369 or so a pair cam gears 200 250 valves valve springs and so on bore it out larger pistons its endless mods for 7000 and if u do it right with a turbo setup its good for around 500 horsepower if u want a motor for example and the exact mods done checkout the febuary 2004 issue of import racer!!!!! A 522 hp b16a at 22.4 psi!!!!!!! i myself am looking at getting a b16a jdm spec out of an integra xsi which is stock 170 hp just checkout hmotorsonline.com its great my motor longblock with ecu is only 1200 thats without tranny good luck on a quick car :D
