    Background:
    I bought this car for $1800 when I had a few grand saved up, for fun, with the intention to swap. the car is SUPER rare to find and this is the RS model for the US. I decided to just get it and use it for cheap transportation until I swapped it. The swap produces a fairly UN-SAFE vehicle lol. it's fun though.

    I like this model.

    Its a DL. no options like an RS overseas. I went hydro and the 1.8 is still cable driven tach. I will go to a 1g dsm trans if the 1.8 blows. That or awd next.

    ive never heard of an rs model. what makes it different? im interested. how come you didnt just do a turbo trans swap? not sure if the 1.8 hydro is much of an upgrade
    1. pimpy rider
      you probably know all this
      i have done 1g fwd trans before, its not bad, a lot more work than a 2g trans but making up s few mounts is worth the day it takes if you hava 1g tranny
      if you can find a 2g it bolts roght in
      you can use tslon awd axles and hammer on the colt outer spline part
      2g trans is edpecially nice if you do awd, the 2g style mounts are just overall better imo
