Welcome to K20A.org I myself had a mustang notchback till I wrecked it :(. Dang I hella miss that car. But I also have a eg civic. I like the best of both worlds I see notthing wrong with liking V8's and imports at the same time.

Yeah, you will figure it out pretty quick after you start driving the car. Totally different animal than a RWD.

I knew a guy on a saturn forum had a Ion twin charged with a gt30r made 450whp what a beast. Those are powerful motors. And I have a mustang friend with a 08 GT, Kenne bell kit 2.2L kit, Longtube Headers, 450whp/480wtq my hatch takes it though :D

If you start with the RSX weight will not be on you're side, it would be much easier with a hatch/integra/crx you're saving 700-1000lbs right off the bat.

Yeah i took that into consideration too but this build isnt going to be anything extreme. just a clean daily driver with 350-400 hp good handling along with a bumpin system and good looks all around.

My lil Bro runs a JRSC Type S. Sick little machine dude. You will not believe your eyes. It seriously haunts 98% of what you can find on your stretch of road. Sit in one of these things SC'd and you will be smiling for days and weeks on end! Of course his suspension is totally tuned,, but,, hey,, you can't go into a bull fight without a red cape! :D
