On the upside, a roller window door slammer with a 2.0 would make one Hell of an autocross/momentum car being the lightest stock configuration for a 3. The power to weight ratio is pretty close between a 2.0 sedan and a 2.3 hatch, so he's not really giving up much on that end. The 2.3 does have more torque, but the 2.0 gets an extra 500 rpm which'll help stretch out 2nd gear and keep him from having to shift to 3rd while dodging cones.

2007 Phantom Purple hatch; JBR RMM/busihgs/shifter plate, Koni STR.t's, Michelin Pilot AS3's, Spin on oil filter conversion, stubby antenna, Kenwood KDC-X997 hu + Sundown Audio SA12 + Infinity speakers + JL 320.4 amp, debadged and door edge guards removed, Lamin-X + indy fog mod, aluminum AC knobs, DIY SRI, TRS 5000K HIDs, more coming.
