A car to modify...as in rice?...Or performance?...Because there's a pretty big list for both, could you narrow it down a bit?...I'd suggest:

Prelude
RX-7
Mustang
Neon
Focus
Just to name a few that come to mind...

They can be made to go fast...I read about a Focus in Sport Compact Car a week ago, and Neons, well they're almost kind of just de-tuned SRT-4's...

Don't get a Neon cause you'll be upset when you get beat by a stock Suzuki Swift or a Pinto or something else unrespected like that.

SRT-4's in general are really rare around here, but I'm pretty sure you could turbo a Neon, right?...

You could but what would be the point? It would be easier to but a factory turbo car and upgrade it and get greater results than turbocharging a Neon and getting less HP.

Its my understanding that Newyorker just puts stickers and neon lights on his Neon. So I doubt he knows anything on the subject of putting a turbo on a Neon let alone any car.
