If the swap was done right...and the wiring not hacked to ****, that could be a very fun car...the FBs are some interesting cars..FC swap would have been nicer though...better suspension and less rust issues, but thats a sleeper for sure.

Light car with great handling and lots of power=the winz!!!
But only if done right, I never get why people would go to such an extent and build such a car only to sell it.

That's pretty sweet, those FBs don't weigh much and the SR20DET has great power potential..
