CTR or ITR

If you had a chance to buy anyone of these two which would you pick and why?

CTR... I like small cars, the smaller the better. But, I'd rather build my own... 2000 hatch CX, B18C1 motor ... normally aspirated and built to 2 liters. there is something about that torque.

Build you own you can, but it's not JDM

i think a good motor build would be taking a b16b and stroking it to 1.8 or 2.0 liters

I'd love to have the EK CTR, but no thanks on the EP3

I wouldn't mind the ITR, any year

I have always been a fan of CTR. The styling is just my favourite.

I am just confused between motor choice.... D16 turbo, B18B turbo, NA B18C, or NA B16B....

I so want to swap....

If I were to look at 99/00 CTR and 95-01 ITR, I would go for the CTR. I heard it is faster and handles better. Also, the platform is actually more modern than the ITR.

With the EP and DC5, I wouldn't bother with either.

Bruno,
I'm not JDM either, but my GF is....

Im not sure which id take...but it would definatley have to be the older ctr's for sure. these new ***** arent even hand made anymore from what i understand. That's a really tough call though...maybe the CTR cuz noone has a real one here, but then again how often do you see a jdm itr (real one)? And all this wanting to be jdm **** is funny to me...one of my buddies went to japan and he says everyone there gets a good laugh at the way we spend money on our imports to make them look like their stock factory cars. when you think about it, it is pretty funny.

Funny, and yet, sadly true.

I will be purchising one or the other. It WILL be 100% JDM because I'm buying it in Europe, since I'm there everysummer for 4-6 months (with the exception of this summer) I want one. I was leaning towards an 99 ITR though. Don't know why. They both have the same engine if I'm not mistaken.
