Default Should I Keep The Integra Or Trade Up?

Always wanted a Integra and came across a great deal a 00 Integra LS for $800. The only problem is it has a salvage title & a bad dent on the back panel. Well I checked it out and it drove great so I got it, fast forward 2 months later I got the dent fixed and put in a alarm, gave it a minor tune up & never had any problems with it. Well my question is should I trade up to a type r or keep the LS and fix up? This car already came with nice after market rims, exhaust, and allot of performance parts worth well over the $800 price tag. My fear is the salvage title if I ever wanted to resale the car I really wounding get much, also Id prefer a manual, and I have an auto. Just scared I get a new one with allot of problems. So should I just fix up, or trade up? Thanks

A car with a salvage title is worthless.

I'd get something new, the b18 in the LS (I forget which specific b18 it is now) gains very little from bolt ons, if you wanted to actually build it you'd have to swap to atleast a b18c1. and you'd have to do a transmission swap.

IMO your best bet if you want performance would be to find an rsx, it'll cost you a bit but an integra ls auto isnt going to be fast no matter what you do to it short of a k20/k24 swap and transmission swap. Which is alot of work lol
