      Depends on your budget, and how much work you are willing to do. Are you only interested in something that will just bolt right in?
      I do not understand why some coupes make the grade and others do not. Everyone knows, for instance, that the Corrado was as tasty as an East End prize fighter with the looks of a Benetti super-yacht. The four-cylinder was good, but the VR6 was about as close as you could get to Ferraridom without buying a Ferrari. And what happened? You all went to the pub instead. -Jeremy Clarkson-

      The holy grail is the o2m as far as I am concerned. You can try to strengthen an o2a but at the end of the day you are better off upgrading especially if you are putting out significant power. As a bonus you usually get another gear as well. Only drawback is that is is a lot heavier than the o2a.
