I am looking to spend 10-12k and want some balance of performance, reliability and mileage. Some background. I owned a 1993 TT Supra with ~450whp and an Evolution with ~300whp. While these cars were very fun I want to do something a little different. I am looking to do something low weight. I also do all my work myself. So far I have been considering I considered doing a B-series swapped Civic hatch, JRSC Integra, WRX swapped GC8 coupe, MR-2 Turbo. I want to shoot for 10lbs/hp in a car that can be made a capable handler. What am I missing? What are your experiences with the cars posted? Edit- Also, must be california emissions legal, or easily get CARB cert.
