    ok you want to run a fast QM..basically get a lighter car than the integra..like a civic hatch or an integra...swap an lsvtec or LS and build it for either NA or boost..you can pickup a shell for less than 1k..then get an ls motor for less than $500 that leaves you with 3500..you can build a nasty NA with 3500 and the vtec head cost less than 500...its called power to weight ratio..
    integra is quick but not as quick as a hatch or rec with the same motor
