      Why not just get a RSX Type S? We can pretend it's a hatch back, and stock for stock it's better than a EP3, SVT Focus, or GTI from that year.

      Is there really a price difference? (Comparing 2014 to 2014)

      A Mustang GT 5.0 was $40,000 MSRP and always had some kind of pricing incentive, making them sit at the lot at high 30's. Every 2014...

      I'm a VW guy, and especially fond of MK1/2/3, and this is still unsettling to me. What in the world would prompt you to save this car!? On the other hand it may just be the winner of this thread...

      Thanks! I know the rear main is perfect, the bottom end rebuild is only 2 summers old.

      Go grab a set of lifters from the wreckers, pretty much any 8v hydro lifters are interchangeable, so try to pick a low mileage car. ...
