OP buy a $3-5k S13 or S14 240SX and drop a LS kit into it. It will be under $10k and you can hit high 20's on the highway, hell 30 if you tune it right and do some stripping.

So you want a 300hp, >3000lb, 30+mpg car that's reliable, glides under the radar and is a highway cruiser?
I want a car that shoots rainbows from the tailpipe with a driver that high fives me and tells me I'm awesome. Oh- and instead of a crotch vent I want a fleshlight built in.

300hp/3klbs = 1:10 power to weight. Break this down to a lower common denominator and your well on your way.
If that's your criteria, then finding a 200hp/2klb or 250hp/2500lbs car that can get 30mpg is much more obtainable, especially in stealth form.
We get what you are saying about area under the curve, but you're taking the argument to extremes and lessening its effectiveness.
i very much know s2000 is hella fast around the track
im strictly talking about their engines
i would gladly drive an s2000 over a vw for auto-x
all im doing is proving how the 1.8t engine is faster out of a corner then the s2000 engine
so long story short s2000 is a faster car but the gti has a faster engine
no with stock turbo and a tune the 1.8t fwd VWs are only capable of 225HP and 275 ft-lbTQ
with heavy modifications the stock turbo is capable of about 240-250hp at the wheels
thought im pretty sure thats not the OPs plan even though the gti/jetta is a pretty good "under the radar" car with some pep
anyway im not trying to force the OP to buy a vw im just trying to prove how torque readings are important and how a car with a decent amount of torque output in the low-mid range is faster out of the corners compared to an all hp honda vtec engine
This one gets 433hp: http://www.streetfire.net/video/turb...more_88217.htm
