    the integra type-r already has the best engine that honda/acura makes.

    just be prepared to have it stolen. and insurance isn't cheap either.

    and there will always be someone faster. even if the car isnt' faster, they may be a better driver. build a good car, not just the engine, and you'll have plenty of fun.

    Whats done to the 5 liter? If your buddy knows anything at all about how to go fast, itll take a fair amount of effort on your part, in a Honda, to beat him.

    At the risk of sounding like a GM fanboy, I say get LT1 F-body. With a 5k budget, youll smash 5.0's into the ground all day.

    it doesn't take much to be faster than a mustang. it really doesn't. especially in a straight line. you just need to know how fast that car that you're competing with is. just an estimate, but if you get a honda into the 14 second area of a 1/4 mile, you'll probably beat him.

    If I had $13k and my goal is to "beat a mustang and turn heads"....

    Since you are 17, i am going to assume you aren't looking at a lower end BMW or anything like that.

    a few options....

    1) 94-2000 integra. slap on a turbo and tune. brakes, tires, suspension.

    2) an older bmw M3. tons of stuff you can do, plus it's an "M"

    3) Nissan 240sx. get an sr20det swap and have fun with it. sick car. i've had 3.

    i would just buy one already swapped. it's a buyers market right now. you can get a killer 240sx for about $7000 and it will smash the mustang.

    the best engine is an sr20det.

    the 300zx is decent. but it's really heavy and the twin turbo model is pretty spendy, even though its' old.

    A 5.0 with a cam and a K&N will do better than 14's. One with an Explorer "GT40" top end will do even better.

    but it depends on which mustang it is. if it's a '96 shit box, even with a k&n and cam, it's not gonna run better than 14.5.

    if it's the stock 5.0 with i/h/e, it's not going to be that fast. thats why i said he needs to find the base time and speed.
