    Combined they have the same horsepower as one lightly modded mustang.

    I'm pretty impressed by your GLH, too. Where'd you find it?

    Tenacity. I was at 6 at one point. This is the nicest one I owned:

    You could have at least said a Camaro, I am insulted by you comparing my cars to that kind of garbage... JUST KIDDING!

    In a backyard, I got rid of it quite a while ago and never noticed I hadn't updated my profile. It was rough (real rough) and needed a lot more work then an 18 y.o going to school could afford.

    How does "banned" sound?

    I figured XR4Ti's are about the same price as 1st gen RX7's. Didn't think 2nd gen RX7's are that cheap.

    Don't hate on the Sprints, I drove a convertible one years ago, they're not too shabby for 3 cylinders haha.

    Googe already has that one I'm sure you can think of something better than that. I guess Sprints are alright though, it's especially good for the OP because he could buy either the XR4Ti or the RX7 and be blown away by the power.

    Err... the Sprint I drive right now would be close to either of those with a bit more fuel. Don't knock what you haven't tried. And don't knock me for what little I've posted on this forum. The original question was an honest question not put forth too seriously as who knows what can happen when looking at a general selection of cars? I could end up with anything in reality but thought it would be cool to try something out that was a bit different and post on Beyond to see if some guys could drop me some info on two different cars I am looking at.

    Pretty sure I'll end up with something that doesn't blow it's tranny as easily as a talon though... *ZING!* I kid! A talon was on the list but I've researched them before quite thoroughly and any talon that is below $3k is a talon I don't want to touch (not really planning on throwing around more then $3.5k for a vehicle).

    Don't take it so seriously, it's the web. I'm not knocking you, fuck I almost bought your turbo sprint when you had it for sale lol. If you do get a talon though, I have a great transmission core for sale, only slighty broken

    i loved my XR... it was a great car to learn from... cool looking to if you fit a full cosworth rs500 kit...

    their are tons of aftermarket places aswell to get parts...

    northamericancosworthspecialists.com
    rapidogroup.com
    merkursport.com
    ebay.ca lol







    anyways yes their are also the downsides the turbo is oldschool, head does suck balls and wont flow efficiently and the t9 transmission blows aswell easiest solution is to swap a mustang t5 tranny...

    Oh no, a fellow teamswift forum member.

    Do you know anything about the Mk4/5s? If so, I might send a PM your way to ask a few things.

    If you have to decide between an RX7 and something else, get the (whatever else it is.)

    RX7s are a labor of love but you gotta be ready to give the car plenty of attention, especially if you're talking turbo models. It's not the kind of car you can start up just to re-adjust your park job (helloooo flooding).

    Yes indeed. I've never owned a MK4/5 due to their "everything" I hate about modern cars-ness (weight, slow). Can't be much help there.

    Went and looked at a couple of cars yesterday. Spinning triangles scare me now so I've crossed the RX7 off the list (mabye I'll grab one in two years). However, this Merkur:



    has my interest piqued

    I used to own an XR4Ti. It's peppy, but man did EVERYTHING break on that car. I gave it to my bro, and he had it just as bad as me lol. At least he made it look decent:



    If you think Merkur parts are cheap, you are mistaken. Getting some of those parts are fucking tough!
    lol, and i bought it from rage2 and this is what the motor looked like ...

    always do a compression test before you buy a used moded car!





    .....

    so did you end up buying the XR?

    he doesn't want to spend more than 3.5k. You obviously never priced out a 20b swap. Even guys who do them themselves end up paying over 10 grand usually if not that much very close to that in the end. It's expensive as hell...Worth it but expensive.

    His 3.5k car would end up costing him well over 10 grand and then gas would be atrocious. He'd be diong a tank every day he would drive the thing. 20b's are thirsty fuckers.

    I definitely vote fc though.

    Bought a 1994 civic, feel terrible about it. And then I get over 700kms on a tank of gas during regular highway driving That makes me smile a bit.

    If the civic gets sold (everything is always for sale, right?!) I might be getting something else, probably not an RX or Merkur (still want them though)!

    am I the only one who thinks the XR4Ti looks ugly? i think they're haggard. I'm glad the OP bought a practical car and not one of those unreliable cars.
