    So you have a 2000 Type R motor laying there, and you want to buy a RHD JDM ITR?

    Well whatever, he should NOT buy the car, and get an EG or an EK shell and drop his ITR motor in that, and save a couple grand over buying another car and still having the motor laying there.

    buy an old 87 CRX si...and that will really be a better combo....

    ITR eng, proper LSD, stiff torsion bars, and the light weight chassis will fly. It's a hell of a swap, but it's been done. And if boost knocks on the door, then that would be a hot little scooter.....

    who cares about looks? Buy like a 98 EK Hatch and pull the engine, drop in the ITR. Just make it look stock.

    look to spend between 16-20k depending on the condition of the vehicle, modifications done and the location.

    Please, dont kid yourself. Everyone here cares how their car looks. Unless you go mud-bogging in your Jeep or Truck or something, you care how your car looks.

    Anyway, to make an EG or EK hatch look good, some nice 15" wheels, with a good 1.5" to 2" drop, and a nice paint job.
