A cheap civic, swap KA, 300 or more NA HP, good gas mileage, good power. Hell if I had the money I would buy a civic also, and do it right, but seems like your mind is made up. Best of luck with your endeavor(s).

So should we be expecting to see all your go fast goodies in the classified section

For what it's worth, even thought it's been covered...

I switched from a 400HP Mustang to the WRX when I moved to Chicago. My stang got 9 MPG. It wouldn't get traction until about 70 MPH in 3rd gear, and that was with 275's on the back.

My mom used to have a 6 spd 97 Trans Am about 12 years ago. It had tons of torque and was a blast to drive. It started creaking real bad around 30k miles, so she switched to a '00 Vette, which also started to go to hell at 30k. Now she's got a 07 Vette with about 15k on it. She just replaced the front brakes for $1000:eek:

Anyway, if you want to go fast in a straight line, you can't beat an American V8.

nah I am actually selling the car as is, but yah I mean I just want to experience a American V8 all the stories from my dad and what not, I fell in love with the car at first glance, and its not to say I wont go back to wrx's/sti's in the future its just who knows how long muscle cars will be around with the economy, and everyone trying to get high mileage cars, and what not...I mean I am confident that wrx's/sti's are the future of the racing world so I will have time to come back.
