    I don't know how those are even comparable. In my opinion, that would be like asking if I should trade my blackberry for a rotary phone....

    Granted, a sports car would be able to be driven more often and wouldn't be hampered by weather like the suzuki, but I'd never even consider trading my bike for a car, not ever.

    Apples and oranges. Can't really compare cars and bikes in my opinion. Personally I'd keep the bike because they're some things you just can't do in a car, no matter how modified it is. Plus the integra will end up being a money pit, you'll end up replacing parts, more modifications, better components, etc.

    My buddy had almost the exact same car, B20 swab with a decent sized turbo..it was fast. But i bet the bikes faster :D. Ive seen and done the whole tuner thing and its fun but Ive always wanted a bike. I think a bike would be more enjoyable to cruise around on (depending where you live).

    not sure if you have the bike and are thinking of trading for the car, or vice versa, but either way, get or keep the bike!

    I would definitely keep the bike. Ricers aren't my cup o' tea though. And my 8000lb dodge ran 13's so I agree with CB, not very impressive

    I would take which ever one has more resale value. Your probably not going to keep either one forever so might as well take the one that is valued higher.

    Your bike probably does the same time as the Integ. You already have the truck so keep the crotch rocket.

    as a former integra owner as long as he doesnt blow it up and keeps it clean it will keep a decent amt of resale value with the mods it has

    with that said .... the b20 has a lot of torque without the turbo ... i cant imagine that thing hooks up very easily on the track unless it has lsd also.

    mustang might be a more comfortable faster choice ... probably worse on gas though

    ehh sounds pretty weak 13.4 really should be hitting 12's my buddies ls turbo crx on slicks hits 11.3 i would be weary buying some one elses project especially a b20 turbo, not built right those will throw a rod if you over rev. And the theft factor good luck sleeping tight at night might wanna sleep in ur car if ur gunna own that one.
