This car is truly reliable unlike a DSM... What is better? a cheaper car that is more likely to fail you, Or a car that will last you over a decade or more?
To the person who wrote the above comment... You have no idea what you're talking about... 2g turbo could whoop any of those DSM's easily. Those small turbos can only handle slower speeds.

As far as the 99-2000 si is concerned, it is the perfect platform to start from to make a strong running tuner car. I highly recommend forced-induction because the peak torque output is low, but these b16's take to it like a duck to water. They will maintain boost around 10-12 psi off most kits with stock internals and you don't sacrifice engine life as far as it being a daily driver is concerned. Just find one quick because they are becoming sparse. I bought my 2000 si in 2001 and kids offer to buy it all the time.

I agree with all of you about the civic being WAY better than the laser.. Plymouth sucks so much that they have to make a copy of a JDM car just to make an extra $3,000 a year. And about the s2000 motor in a civic, I thought you would have to have the same speed of transmissions in both cars. the s2000 is a 6-speed, the civic a 5. If that soesnt matter, than I'm sure it would...My brother had an idea of putting a 3000GT VR-4 motor in a Eclipse GSX, but the whole 6-speed/5-speed trannies made it a iffy idea.

With the amount of money you would have to invest in a Lazer, you could have a beautiful Honda Civic Si that will live forever! I love the 99 Civic Si with 160hp STOCK and plenty of room for mods. They are the most modifiable vehicle out there, and you can spend your money on stuff you want to do instead of stuff you have to FIX.
