    Ok, so if I was to buy a car, what would you guys recommend as the most bang for the buck? It has to be a street car, I would have to be able to bribe it through emissions, and it would need to go fast. As fast as possible. 1 of 2 scenarios. I either have like $25K cash in hand, or I buy a new car and drop another 10-15K into it. New car budget being about $450 a month. That may seem like a lot, but I don't think it is. Hit me with your best shot guys! EVO? STi? What do you guys think? If I buy the new car it would be my ONLY car, if I dropped the 25 large it could be a weekend toy as I would have another car to drive to work and stuff.

    i have no idea.  between evo and sti...i like the sti more.  but its more of a rally car...evo is a little more geared toward pavement...but modifying can change that.  if youre looking into dragstrip, go for american muscle...cant beat a supercharged v8.  if youre looking for a weekend driver or autocrosser...i would go for an e30(88-91) bmw m3.  those cars are built for racing and pack a great punch.

    MAFT on the way, as well as either an equal length tubular header or a slowboy racing manifold.

    It doesn't have to be an EVO or an STi guys, that's just what came to mind. I'm more interested in figuring out what would be good to build for $25K. I wanted to see what you guys' opinions were on what the ultimate street car would be for a $25K buildup cost.

    well   if you talkin about  an import, then   either one of this is perfect for that price range and its the best bang for the buck in that area (street driven)  you named the 2 choices and they are both sweet

    yea you really picked the two best cars outta that price range as far as imports but you could always buy a crappy supra and go from there if you really want to.
