OK, did a little research to support my SVT claim:

The SVT Weighs less
SVT has more power and torque stock
SVT has multilink rear vs Kia strut rear suspension

The SVT will be an older car, so make sure to check for any potential abuse/neglect by the previous owner.

The SVT has a good suspension package, and good looking wheels stock, just slap on some quality tires.

ok, I'm starting to lean more heavily towards the SVT @ this point in time. I have a couple in mind that I have been looking at on auto trader and they both look good. So, once all the major stuff is all delt with and I'm in the right place financially, which will be very shortly here, I'm going to go test drive the two SVT's that I have looked at and go from there. I did look at a Spec5 down in SC but, the body was a little beat up and I would have to do a lot of stuff to it just to get it up to specs with the SVT.

Thanks for all the input guys.. I really appreciate it.
