what to buy??

over this up coming summer i plan on selling my car and purchasing a new one, what kind I do not know? I am not relatively an RSK fan, I believe that honda made the wrong decision when they stopped making the integra and went to the rsk.. it is just to chubby of a car.. I do however like the integra,mx-6,240sx,civic-si. one reason i think these cars are good looking and can be modified to an almost ulimited extent, and second they are in my price range... I am thinking that i want to buy a integra gsr... the type-r is to expensive, but at the same time i want to be in competion w the rsk ...do any of you know what would be a good competitive car with the rsk. I am looking for a fast, sleek(foreign), easily modified car. I know the type-r(integra) run 0-60 in 6.2 sec. which is slightly faster than the type-s rsk(0-60 in 6.5 sec), but what about the gsr,mx-6, and 240sx???

ok, first of all, its RSX, not RSK... and the "RSX" is the new intrgra... in japan you will notice honda integra...actually here... see for your self
http://www.honda.co.jp/auto-lineup/integra_r/ compare body styles... "RSX" = integra... just as TSX = accord, accord = inspire (there some learning for you... check out the site to learn what they are... sure its in japanese but you can see pictures... also, just so you know... acura is ONLY in america... it is nowhere else. acura is a more luxery/sport division of honda in america
as for the and type S is the new american version of type R

now, as for the 240, great drift car, theyre are fast, but basically, if you can drop an sr20det in one its much better

mx6 if you get the v6 version its better

and the GS-R is a little weaker than the type R and a little slower

yeah yeah it was along night knew the name was rsx not rsk don't know what was with me but i knew all of that about acura its just a luxury corporation of honda yeah great but i want to know what car is better i flat out don't like the "rsx" and the type r like i quoted before is in competion with the rsx but to expensive for my price range... what i wanted to do is buy a gsr for around 8g's and drop something like 6g's in engine/performance than work from there ******ds.. I was reading that the if I was to purchase a turbonetics turbo pumping out 8 psi i could attain 260 horse in the gsr, and 240 in the 240sx, have no idea about the mx-6 only it looks great with a body kit and a3-piece spoiler....my situation is as followed coming stock the gsr,mx-6, and 240sx are not equivalent to the rsx but which one is easiest and cheapest to upgrade to fast highend car.. I want to be pushing out around 300-350hp?? please help me out here and mazda6man what is the sr20det engine how much price/horse?

ok its a start

MAZDAMAN6 how much horse power though and i was looking at the pictures so those are just different engines offered in the silvia so they would definetly fit the 240sx because its the same thing but can you just buy a new engine or is it just cheaper to buy it online through ebay and what do you believe is easier to modify(GSR,240SX,MX-6)

if you do want to go with a hondee, there is one this to know if youre going to do stuff to it... its nearly impossible to have a different hondee... nomatter what you do to the car, il assure you that atleast 5 other people have done the exact same thing... with 240s, though its coming along slowly, they are turning into a kind of "nissan civic" if you will...they are getting peopular, but not many people actually pull through with the real deal good stuff. and as for the mx6... i dont know to much about them

fyi. i went to a local mazda dealership and test drove a mazda6... i felt like tha mazda 6 lacks power for a mid size car... i notice that while entering a freeway my rpm sky rockets to nearly 7 wen i am gaining speed past 60.. i love everything about the mazda 6.. the style the looks.. its sooooooooooo roomy, everything in side looks so high tech.. and it was my first choice on what car to get.. but now im thinking of the 04 lancer ralliart.. can u tell me something about the mazda6? u own one, do u feel it lacks power?

in my opinion... dont get the ralliart lancer, it, in my opinion looks nothing like a lancer... looks more like a sentra. the motors not that bad though. anyways, with the 6, yeh, i got one... an auto though but egh, what are you gunna do (we got it before it came out in a stick) the v6 is nice, its got a vtec like thing, and since its a fairily large and heavier sedan, its not going to be quite as fast as one would hope (though a lot faster than my 86) i dont know for sure, but after we got the mazda the dealer then told us that supposedly there will be a MAZDASPEED 6, (great timing eh?) but even if not, i still thought it was a good buy...

i think the new 04 lancer ralliart looks better than the old lancers.. thats tha reason y im planning to get it.. big change compared to last year models.. the old models, the back look so square.. now its looks better. the motor is stronger than the mazda 6 sedan and im pretty sure its much much lighter.
~convince me on gettin a mazda 6, and not a lancer =)
