One huge reason NOT to go with the SRT4 is that they aren't as mechanically sound as either the EVO or the STI. You're going to waste money on a POS and then waste money fixing that POS and, probably get laughed off the track trying to race a FWD.
The STI is solid, just as it has been for many many years. You can find a used one that wont break the bank and still achieve your goals. The EVO is a decent choice as well but is more expensive than the STI and is about the same as far as performance goes.
I'd say go with something that's tried and true. After all, I don't know of any SRT4 that can do 0-60 in 1.9 seconds. Nor will I ever hear of such a feat as that would be impossible for a FWD. There is, however, an STI that can do this. Look it up.
