    Hey everyone...I'm 16 and I've been thinking about what my first car should be. I'm pretty much broke right now...can't find a job for the summer. I was looking at the older Corollas and I'm considering buying one. Which model is the best? I hear a lot about the GTS and the FX-16 but I don't know the difference. What are the specs on these cars? How much do they usually cost? How easy is it to tweak these cars for more hp? Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for your help guys...and I know this is a Honda site but I know some people here like other car brands. I just figured since this forum is for other cars it would be alright.

    a mirage. :shrug:

    but unlike the rwd-ish cars, most of my knowledge is useful in both the civic and mirage.

    Hey since this is really a new post i wanted to add something. Im 16 and i love hondas ideally my firast car would be a prelude w/ an h22a but right now all i have is about 4200. I was never really into the civic , so ive been trying to get a prelude for about 4200 to no avail. I have seen latly a few 1988 Supra twin turbos that have been catching my eye latly. Plus the fact that the supra can Drift, and reall drifting(powersliding) is funn as hell. Honestly i do love hondas and they will always be the best,but im young have semi shitty job and i need an easy way to get cheap horsepower out of a good block with few minor tune ups.

    yea but A. everyone in myfamily drives an accord, for some reason theyre just goofy and not really what im looking for, but B. both of them are Fwd and there is not a turbo model even availableso that means no drifting and no cheap and easy horse power gains i wouls spend a lot of time just trying to account for the percentage of loss of horsepower to the flywheel

    Yeah, I don't own a Honda anymore either. And Turbomirage can remove the interiors of both Mitsubishis and Hondas.

    its do-able in the 5g+ mirages/lancers but not in 4g- because of motor orientation, not is it common at all.

    its easier to throw in a 4g63t and call it a day.
