Yea 99 was the best looking but the trick is to buy a 91-93 VR4 for mad cheap like 6K and do a 99 conversion on it for like 2.5K. Then you have your very own 99VR4 for like 9K hahaha. Yea the 97 was the fastest out the door with a 4.8 to 60. It had to do with the electronics. Then once you get a VR4 get yourself a boost controller and dial your stock 9b turbo's up to about 14 or 15 psi and you should be happy for a while lol.
