Default dodge srt 4 or acura rsx type s?

Im looking into buying a car. Im into the whole import racing deal, and want a car to fix up. I always had a thing for japanese cars, but the srt 4 looks nice. It comes with a stock turbo. my budget is from 10 to 12 thousand. im looking more for street/drag then drift. which one should i get?

srt4 is much faster. the type s handles better and is overall a much classier and more reliable car. get the srt4 if you are just looking for straight line speed

acuras= luxury cars. dodge= not. but thats beside the point. if youre looking for performance, go with the dodge.

get the srt4 if you want power. but consider this, it has known to have many problems.

a friend of mine has gone through two motors already and that's for racing. luckily he was still under warranty so his motors were replace for free.

the Acura is an all around better car, stock turbo plus weak internals usually equals bad news... And honestly srt4's aren't THAT much faster than a type-s, in my 02 type-s with an intake/ race header/ exhaust and kpro ive pulled a few them. Granted stock for stock the srt is faster... but only until it blows up
