Okay I have a 95 200sx se-r but I'm not sure if I want to spend the money to mod it (FWD). I'm thinking of buying one of the following: eclipse GSX, 240sx,WRX, or maybe 300zx 2+2 ( I have kids). What do you guys think would be the best to mod, most potential?

Ok, well it all depends on whether you plan on keeping it as a daily driver. The DSM, or Eclipse GSX in normal ppls terms will give you the best bang for your buck performancewise, but they aren't reliable cars as a daily driver unless you have a couple of em. The 240sx is a very nice car, but last I heard there was only one company making a turbo kit for the stock engine, otherwise you are going to have to do an SR20DET swap in there, which will cost you a couple grand. The WRX is a nice car if you are willing to shell out the money being that this will cost you a bunch more than your other options before you have any mods in it. The 300zx is a nice car too, but they are tough to find as a turbo car, and they are usually expensive, plus if you stick with the twin turbo setup, that means you have to buy 2 turbos when you upgrade instead of one like you would with all the other 4 cylinder choices. I'd say that your best bet would be to keep the SE-R as a reliable daily driver, then look for 90-94 Eagle Talon TSI AWD, Eclipse GSX, or the rare Galant VR-4 which was only made in very limited numbers in the early nineties, but is a full four door and makes a very nice sleeper car with AWD, turbo, and 4 Wheel Steering that you can still have plenty of back seat room for the kids.

Oh yeah, and as for potential, the 300zx, and the GSX have the most proven potential for power of all the cars you listed.

thanks for the info eviljosh. Whatever I decide, it will be a daily driver or atleast reliable enough to be driving daily. About the GSX are you refering to "crank walk" as far as reliability

Well crank walk is just a part of it, whenever you deal with a motor that has alot of things going on inside, the more complex it is, the more likely it is that something will go wrong. I used to have an AWD Talon myself, and I loved that car to death. I bought my SE-R now because of one of the guys who was in my DSM club who had an SE-R as his reliable daily driver, and an Eclipse GSX as his fun track car. From my personal experiences with my DSM, I can understand where he was coming from. My best advice would be to keep your SE-R, and get yourself an early 90's DSM if you want a really fast fun car.
