    What do you like to do with your cars? I'd go with a GSR swap sooner than a turbo setup. And only an EG hatch for me...

    That's pretty clean. I am wondering about the turbo timer too...
    I'd get it if I had $7000.

    I just kinda wanted to get peoples reactions to the car, I would only buy something that I really liked myself anyway. I went and drove the car yesterday and HOLY SHIT. It's a fucking rocket. I shifted gears to second and stepped on it and spun them for like 10 feet. It's faster than the Type R I drove. It's also gutted from the front seats back. :D

    The turbo timer is because he was going to turbo charge it, but realized what a bitch it would be with the high c/r pistons. I can only imagine what that car would be like with a turbo. :eek3:

    :cliffs:
    Was looking for a stock EG coupe to turbo-charge and came across this.
    Drove car.
    Nearly pissed pants.
    Decided to buy this instead.
    I'll keep you guys informed.
    :D

    naw, fuck that. Build your own shit. For 7000, you could have a QUICK eg hatch built to your own liking. without all that extra bling bling that your paying for with this car. my $.02

    For $7000 I could NOT build an EG anywhere NEAR as quick. And damnit people I want a COUPE. the hatches are fugly IMO. As far as "extra Bling, Bling I'm paying for, lets see -
    B18c GSR motor + ITR pistons/and valvetrain + CTR cams = > $4000
    17" rims + tires = > $1000
    Ground control/tokiko HPs/swaybars/strutbars = > $1000
    Stereo = > $500
    Tenzo R bucket seats = > $500
    Exedy clutch/intake/header/exhaust/fuel pump = > $1000
    I left a lot of stuff out too...

    So, thats AT LEAST $8000 worth of not so useless parts that I want, that are already on this car. Not including the price of the car. And I offered them $6300. So IMO it would cost me at least $8000 ON TOP OF BUYING THE STOCK CAR to build this car. And I'm picking it up for $6300. Good deal IMO.
