    I had a similiar dilemma, but pretty much everyone said the same thing...fix what you got...unless it is not worth fixing...a little rust won't hurt! :p

    LS Turbo for around 6K...moderately done?

    Here there a CX with an ITR engine with a few mods... running 13.8's :)

    A healthily modified GSR should be able to pull off the same stunts. More power to yah! 8)

    Do it yourself, it's not all that difficult.
