The performance improvement over a regular 185 is easy to get; so the only reason to get an RC is to have an RC. It would be a shame to get it only to tear it apart.
If you want the look get an RC hood, bumper and decals. A lot less hassle than driving a RHD car and dealing with trying to find parts for a car NO ONE has.

My original plan was to keep it as mint as possible I don't mind upgrading it. But only if the upgrades were impossible to notice. Something like 2.2 internals and possibly a 205 ecu swap but still keeping the afm in place for the looks of bone stock.but for a $2500 dollar car (yes im paying 2500 i will explain after i pick it up) i have alot of room to play.

Edit: I guess it comes down to asking "what makes an RC, an RC". Is it the different hood and bumper, or drivetrain (of which the transmission, rear diff, head, intercooler, AFM and turbo are all different), or that the clutch pedal has more throw (less travel) than the standard Four, or that the suspension parts are apparently different also.... maybe its simply the fact that it has a special chassis number? and therefore doesn't matter what is powering it?
Does removing the engine and swapping it with something obviously more powerful and reliable, have the side effect of also removing what makes an RC, an RC in the first place?
Guess it depends on what you consider important about the car's identity....

take the stock engine from the rc and install it in my Trac and sell it. Then install the 2.2 into the rc and have a modified gt4rc.
Or keep the rc stock... (It honestly hurts me to think of modifying such a rare car)then sell my alltrac as a rolling chassis. Basicly complete minus the engine. And hold on to the stroker for future dreams.
Installing the striker Into my alltrac isn't feasible. Because I'd never be able to sell it for anything close to what I have into it.
Let me know what you think ...iv lost alot of sleep over this......
