    ok...some background...had a 02 WRX fairly modded. pretty much everything except internal engine work, including tranny. then i sold that and bought a 99 vette. sweet ride. but im buying a housr so i sold the vette.
    now after i settle into my house im gonna want to start a project, i want to do a turbo project.

    i would love to do a GC8 with an Sti swap. that would be my dream. but finding a decent GC8 in texas is next to impossible.

    or

    perhaps a DSM (eclipse or talon).


    What do you think i should do? i want a cheap, easy to build and fun car that i can make relativley fast. low 12s high 11s.

    What would OT do?

    I'm not huge fans of them, but you just described a DSM

    get a colt/mirage/summit and do a 4g63 swap from an eclipse. its fairly straight forward, and you can have a ridiculously powerful geo metro sized car.

    Do the STi swap into a GC chassis, but don't limit your search for the chassis to an RS, look for an older Impreza L, since you'll be swapping out everything anyways. Just boosted my 2000 Impreza 2.5RS, and I love it, but an STi swap into a GC would be kick ass, even stock.

    Don't do a dsm. They are money pits and headaches. Trust me. I've owned one.
