      If you're going to leave it alone, the white RS.

      If you're going to play around with it, the blue Type R is worth looking at. I can see from the power curve on the dyno chart they posted that you're going to want to muck around with the turbos though. Might have vacuum line issues, cos they're not changing over smoothly. Normal to have a bit of a gap there but that's a gargantuan flat spot. Or it could just be deceptive due to a shit dyno chart axis selection (km/h over rpm)

          Late 2013 i had stooped down to a sell price of 19k for my 2002 shitter. Couldnt give the farken thing away. Had a asian uni kiddy from from eastwoo rock up and tell me 18k plus i tow the car to mechanic mate for inspection. I said listen champ. What about you give me 18.5, bring your trailer and sail away. Car was in genuine good nick and would've driven upto qld and back no probs. No dice.

          Oh well. He might be kicking himself now lol i sure ain't.

            We have been looking for a super cheap one too.
            Plans were to use a Billet by Pac 13B , Paddle shift auto and 9" Rear....
            Paint and interior.
            But the prices for the car are now silly
            MK7 Golf R 11.3@123.9mph. still working at getting into the 10s
            F80 M3 LCI2 10.78@130mph ( Quickest stock turbo M3 in Oz )

              Beyond the body kit on the first one, anyone claiming a legitimate 370hp with twins, has their dyno operator pulling them by their pud hard - unless running 25 year old hen's teeth, big compressor housing versions.

              2nd one I'd avoid if you do take it on track. Front mount almost guaranteed to cook the thing if you have half a go and wank-wanks don't need just a head gasket and resurface later. Wheel offsets would have me worried on the electrical harness too, lean on it a bit in corners, and pop, bang, fuck!

                Serious question. I want to do similar but for roundy-roundy not straighty-zoomy and would take an RX8 over an FD now. With the right bodywork an RX8 can look proper tough and its a better chassis. I guess I'm arguing against the fact this is one the most beautiful cars ever made huh

                    If it is going to be a track only setup, might be worth considering picking up a pre-99 car to import as parts only from Japan - with the right car, you'll make enough money selling the surplus parts that it will end up being a fairly cheap chassis.
