    Probably put it toward a Skyline. Although I'd need double that to get one that I'd want. :)

    Well if you ever just get 35K, obviously you should just invest it now, then you wouldn't have to worry about retirement. But if it had to be cars, then yeah, I'd put that towards an STi. However, in the true spirit of hondaswap, assuming I stayed with the 96 Hatchback...

    B18C1, sleeved
    9:1 Arias pistons
    Crower rods
    Complete head work (valves, springs, retainers, cams, port and polish)
    coolers for every fluid
    Turbonetics ceramic ball bearing turbo (I'm not even gonna say a size for fear of starting the next gsr/t)
    Quaife LSD
    JUN flywheel
    ACT Stage 3 clutch
    AEM Standalone with boost control
    700ccinjectors
    Hours of professional tuning
    New paint (metallic gunmetal)
    Volk GT-Ns in gunmetal
    Tein Flex
    Tein EFDC (compatible?)
    Completely new interior (new black carpet, black roof upolstry, Intergra typeR front and rear seats)
    Brembo 4pots in front, 2pots in the back
    Type R lip front and rear
    Thermal RD Turbo exhaust
    Many sets of tires :p
    Spend a couple grand on sound mods, no booming bass, just the best possible sound.

    I don't even know if that would total 35K or not, or if I'm missing anything, but I couldn't see myself wanting much more than that for a Honda.

    i would put it towards a s2000. mainly b/c it handles really well. if not that i would get a ITR and hook it up.

    of the two choices that you gave i would say the supra tt
    if it was my choice i would take a trip to japan and go car shopping, either a skyline or a new itr, why not both while i am at it i plan on being a billionaire. lol

    my friend bought a 94 supra TT bpu 2 for 24k, now its a bpu 3 =)

    given the choices i think i would get a supra, i love s2k's, but id rather have a removable hard top then a soft top.


    i personally would buy about a 94 nsx-t, ive been pricing them for a while, you can get early 90's nsx's for 20-25k.

    and if i couldnt ifnd one of those, then an EVO

    you can get a used NSX for super cheap at auto auctions, a guy here got his for 18k. i dunno what i would get, i would prolly get two cars, the SRT4 and drop a couple grand into it, run low 12s very streetably, and get a hachi roku with the supercharged mr2 engine in it and have fun with that... or an r33, of course.
