#5 of 6 Bad 2 Choices

Well, if you read the forum regarding Acura Integra (All years/models) you'd know that the 2000 Integra will get stolen in a heart beat. However, that car is really popular and will definately keep its value (if it doesn't get stolen that is! ). Stay far away from the salvaged mustang it less you can get it for at least half of the normal bluebook (kbb.com). Not to mention a salvaged mustang may have a lot of little problems even after repair b/c American cars in general are already built with faulty designs.
For $9,000 I'd say check out the last generation of RX7's (93-98) you could probably find a pretty nice one for almost 10, or a 99 2D Accord would probably be cheaper and you could modify it (get the V6). And nippononly is right, figure out what you want first.

The only "mods" that will bring an Integra LS up to 200 hp are superchargers, turbochargers, or a new engine. If he has done anything to the engine internally, I wouldn't touch it. If he put on an intake and a fart can exhaust, no harm done if that is your style.
As for the Mustang, you usually can't get a normal bank loan on a salvage title and some companies won't insure them.
