okay all your gearheads.. i have a question. i just bought an '02 elantra gt hatchback w/ 80k miles and i'm redoing everything in the car, from the tires up. money is no problem or concern. as far as a new engine goes, what would be the best NEW high-performance engine to swap in, and where would i be able to buy one? i'm putting all brand-new parts in my baby, nothing used. as i said, $$ is no problem, i'm looking for the best and i'll pay for the best. i just love the way this car looks, if you're wondering why i don't buy a faster car since money isn't a problem. i really appreciate your help, and if you're in the dallas area and you know someone who will do the engine swap + some other stuff (new tranny, suspension, brakes, forced induction, exhaust, etc.).. well let's just say you'll be glad to know me.
