On a budget? You'd be better off finding a 05-07 ST with the D23, and then turboing that after a rebuild with proper internals. It would cost about $10k less than a new ST, and you'd have everything except the nifty ABS programming that actively brakes the inside wheel in turns to help cornering, and acts to limit torque steer on acceleration. Still, 300 whp is not as wacky as you could go and that would give you a power to weight ratio similar to a Corvette. For another $5k or so you could wide body it and have something nobody had ever seen before with fat tires to compete.
An old Corvette would probably be cheaper- although those seem to stay in the shop frequently. That's the only problem with them.

Buy an ST crate-engine and put it in the backseat powering the rear wheels... it would be epic!

|Kevastator||I would say just go for the new ST. Once you get done with factory parts, custom fabbed parts, and labor, you'd probably be into it for about the same amount of money. Although, it would be very unique, so it has that going for it. lol good luck either way you choose|

|Red Jay 918||or just find a ZX4 ST and use that instead... it'll still be an ST swap at least ;)|

|duc450||Man, when you jump in, you do it with both feet don't ya. This is a monumental project but if you have the time, money and manpower to do it, then go for it. Since no one has done this that I know of, its going to be difficult getting tips from others. First part of the puzzle is buy a salvaged ST. Get that far and then you will probably have others volunteering to help you. Good luck!|

It's going to be far far far easier to just buy a ST and drive it than to attempt any swap. Just so you know.
