just a pitch...my dream project car... 1986 toyota corolla AE86 + honda F20c swap = fast car for about $15g's.. $4-5g's though... buy what ever import you can get and just drive....i hate how people always bash the 3000gt, its actually a good looking car i like it, find one for $5g's and id think you got a good deal lol!

Actually, for almost all model years the 3000GT and Dodge Stealth share every single component aside from Active Aero (Which most disable), and the 95-96 Stealth didn't have all-wheel steering.

 The entire drivetrain is identical, as is the suspension, brakes, entire interior, exhaust, and the electronics (The ECU is interchangeable in all model years).  The body panels are interchangeable between the two, with only the bumpers, sideskirts, sailpanels and wing being different.

 The Stealth actually has a lower drag coefficient, so completely stock, it's the faster car of the two.

Honda Eclipse? Did I miss some thing? When did Mitsubishi and Honda create a joint venture? LOL!
I'm not a fan of the 3KGT, but it is a nice car. I wish there were more of them built up. The stealth and the 3KGT are the same car, essentially. Mitsu and Chrysler shared a lot of technology and chassis designs when they hooked up in the mid to late 80s. It's like Ford and Mazda. Look under the hood of a Fusion or the new Taurus and you see a Mazda engine. I wonder if Ford just got tired of making their own engines... If you doubt what I say, think of this. When the Mazda Tribute forst came out the Ford Escape came out a full year later. Mazda/Ford collaboration. When the new lines of the Focus came out some years back, I was wondering why It looked so familiar. I looked at my friends 92 626 and it hit me. I said to my self, WOW, what is Ford doing? It all worked out well, though. I have no complaints on all the tech swap. I just wonder why the American car companies aren'tdoing for them selves. Even GM used Suzuki and Toyota tech in some of their models. What does that say about Japanese automotive technology? Hmmm...
