The rules here are simple. How fast can you go on a budget? There is one caveat though. It must be as seen in the ad.

You may use whatever online site you wish: Gumtree, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace. Whatever. Have at it!

All of the following were posted yesterday on my local Craigslist, which is somehow amazing.

This appears to be a real SRT4 with substantial aftermarket parts and love put into the build, including springs, turbo hardware, injectors, brakes, and exhaust plus a whole lot more

Oh, it also only has 100,000 miles on the chassis. This is a winner.

The seller claims it has an “STI Short Block” making 300 horsepower at the wheels. We are left to assume a contemporary STI.

Of course, it has been slammed and had tons of work done besides sticking a fast turbo four under the hood. It also looks darned good for 200k chassis.

ItThis may be one of the slower ones here but just look at all the yellow! According to Autoblog these only has 120 HP so maybe this doesn’t belong here.
