I think he should buy an older cheap american car, drop in a 350 and put a few grand in it, and for half the money he can smoke all those civics and acuras.

If your boyfriend loves racing then he should have started off in go carts...then progressed to cars...then he'd be able to race with the 'big' boys (if he got the chance...)racing street cars isn't racing...it's driving a street car fast on the street...

It's nice of all of you to assume because she seems young that her boyfriend must be a street racer. Get off your damned high horses and stop making judgemental assumptions. Maybe he's young...like myself(22) and takes his car to a drag strip on the weekend to race. In any case...without knowing what year you're looking at, the Civic and Acura(I'm assuming you mean RSX or Integra) would be about the same speed wise after Type-R swaps, but the guy above was correct, the Dodge SRT-4 is fairly inexpensive used, and very fast. Underated at 230ish horses stock, rated at the wheels, not the crank like most cars.

Ford Escort Cosworth is nice, but if it must be a Honda, then the Integra Type R is heralded by almost all automotive journalist as the best fwd coupe ever made.

ok with a dodge srt-4 this guy is wrong they are not that cheap even if you get it used the parts are more exspenive. now wether you want a civic or an integra is all up to you personaly i would go with a civic i think they are more my style. but thats besides the point, the point is that with a civic/integra even though the swap may cost a small penny the parts are cheaper and easyer to find and there is a vast amount of setups and bolt-ons that can give you some much noticed ponies under your hood. not to mention customizing is much cheaper with one. right now my boyfriend and i got a 94 civic hatcht for $1,000 with a full bodykit shaved door handles and a 98 si swap in it w/ no power stearing and shuch to make it lighter(put it this way me and him can pick up the back of the car and move it without starting it). and we don't have much money (out of a job) so we went to the junk yard spent $50 on a sabb garret turbo out a 95 9000 sabb and well if you know how to work on cars and i would imagine you both do all you need is some simple knowledge on how a turbo works and bada-bing bada-bomb you gots yourself a custom turbo kit for under a few hundred dollars with some nice add ponies. so like i said its a personal prefrence and how much you really are willing to spend under the hood you just got to look and make sure you know what you are buying . don't make a buy with your head in the clouds reaserch is always the way to go.good luck.
