Default Which of these Japanese machines would you to choose to extreme tune?

A handful of Japanese cars are known become really mean street machines once they are tuned and can give more exotic machinery a run for their money. There is nothing like tuned Jap car to beat the hell out of a much more expensive super car. So which one out of the given options would you choose

Love the Skyline, Supra and the RX7 a lot. But guess I like the wankel-engine RX7 a wee bit more. So there it is.

Not power crazed as far as jap cars are concerned. A nice Evo with a bitta tuning should do just fine. Good enough to keep up with a lot of exotics and tuned cars in a straight line and good enough to take the curves when demanded to.

Balance i say.

Revv

P.S. The list otherwise would read like:

1. Mitsu Evo (preferably 6 or 8)
2. Nissan Skyline GTR R-34
3. Mazda RX-7
4. Honda S2000

Since i've owned and driven it for a long time,its the Skyline r-34 for me without a doubt.This car can really put quite a few cars to shame.Even a stock 34 is a killer machine.
