The WCBF'ers that have driven the Zilla can confirm there is room for alot of improvement on an FE2 SSEi as well.

I voted Handling, because you cant have acceleration without handling IMO.

Oh my, oh my, my what a dilemma.

Here'* my opinion. I think you should start a small saving and just keep putting your spare money in it, if you have 100 bucks you could part with, put it in there, then next week you have 20 bucks you could part with, put it in there, just keep saving and saving then one year from now, see how much you have and if you want to mod your OWN car, so be it, you have a lot of money to, or you could use that saving for a really MINT SSEi and still have enough money left over to mod it.

that'* what I think. I'm doing that, except I'm going to mod my car, I'm happy with N/A, but I know you Toasty, you want a SSEi.. I know you do....

Well, I voted for stock, reliable and clean because that has always been my main goal and purpose with all my regular transportation.

HOWEVER, this dad-blamed club has me doing things to my stock car that increase it'* acceleration and handling.

So I guess my real answer is:
Make it clean and reliable, then look at sensible modifications that will not change either of the two. Many if not most of the things tried and true here meet that criteria if done correctly and carefully.
