    There is no such thing as a non turbo wrx...there is a 2.5rs which isnt turbo, but doesnt use the same motor or anything like it. The 2.5 from the rs does not take to boost. It would be much cheaper to buy a wrx or buy an older rs (00-01) and do a swap.

    Most likely you'd be better off getting an wrx and going from there. It depends on how modded your "boys" cars our through. It will take alot of money to allow a wrx to run down a modded nsx or supra. A more realistic goal would be an ET or even a hp amount. Finally do some searches for infomation...if you have a question about basic stuff odds are it's been covered in atleast 50 threads....and theres another 50 threads telling someone to search for it.

    Why 00-01? The RS was first made in '98, and the GC8 body style in '93 if thats all you want....

    Unless you plan on dumping a HUGE amount of money into the WRX you're not going to be able to touch a modded NSX or Supra(depending on if the Supra is TT). It'd be hard pressed with even the STI. That's just me. It's not uncommon to hear of 850+whp supras and NSX is Acura's answer to the corvette and so forth.

    Sort of true. A stock STi will pretty much own an NSX though. Yeah, they are neat cars, but won't keep up with an STi....was able to prove that to myself twice. Once on the road and once on the track. They just don't have much torque, although top end isn't bad at all, too bad it takes to long to get there.
