    GS-T or GSX Eclipse. You can get a really good 1g for that price or under, maybe a 2g but it will prolly have high miles or something else wrong

    The WRX is a good competitor to the ITR, stock for stock, when lotsa tight curves are involved. I don't think the other Integras could hang with a WRX though.

    well i broke it down to a few choices.....trying to find a car for under 5500(but i might be dreaming)
    *Toyota Celica GT 1994 (and that style) or the style before it (92)
    *Honda Prelude si 1992
    i'm thiking the above might be a little more common and even if the prelude is not, the insurance might be lower cause it is older....
    I've decided i really want a stick so....i think the above are good choices for it...now its just onto the hard part of actually finding these cars for sale in middle wisconsin...
    Thanks

    i hope you're kidding. you want to compare an integra to a supra, an nsx, a skyline??? the only car in that list that makes sense is the eclipse. :confused: :fawk:

    If he can't save the money, well it'd be a general waste to invest in an average car such as the aformentioned into making it "fast"

    Subaru Impreza 2.5RS. Before I bought mine, I compared it to several other cars, and the Integra GSR was one of them. Stock for stock, thier performance was almost identical, but the Scoobie has the added benefit of All Wheel Drive.

    faster than the integra and not played out the ass. 91-94's have independent rear suspension. if you think your friends teg is quick, theres a lot of other options that are quite a bit quicker. If youre into handling, check out the neon. sure it looks homosexual, but it sticks really well for a FWD car with a good (coilovers/adj shocks) suspension and the DOHC 150hp version is about as fast as your friends teg. Probably slightly faster.

    Nevermind, the neons gay. Just look at old MR2s, 240SX, SE-R, eclipse/talon/laser turbos, if youre really into hondas maybe a civic HB or CRX with a b16a or b18 motor swap. The older style celicas are pretty weak aftermarketwise, unelss you can find an older all-trac which are pretty sweet. Basically if you would be satisfied wiht your friends car, there are lots of other cars you'd be happy with.

    oh, and the ZX2 blows for the most part

    Hybrid. Plain and simple. If you think the base teg flies you will piss your pants in a hybrid.

    92-95 civic hb = 2500-3000
    b16a5 = 1600-2000
    new exhaust = 400
    springs/struts = used 400-600

    so your looking at about 4900-6000 to get started in a hybrid and once you get a little more cash get some good wheels and tires.

    If you cant do it/wont pay for an engine swap and want to jump into a fast car, get a 2nd gen MR2. you can find one for about 5 grand and you'll have turbo+RWD. :)

    Oh, so the WRX isn't fast in the twisties? Guess all those people who have WRX's don't know what they're talking about. Either that, or you just want to come in here and stir up some shit. Let me guess: you're going to tell us about how the Skyline is so much better than the WRX, even though we don't have easy access to them here, and it's also no competition with the Integra, which was the original question anyways.

    Im not a big fan on wrx but i think with a few mods it would whoop a skyline on twisty roads. In japan both have about the same hp stock but wrx is all wheel drive vs rear wheel
