Other than in terms of all-wheel-drive traction, there is no way you're
going to match the performance of an FD with an UrQ for $10k.

Phil Mische (IIRC) brought a 20v UrQ with a big turbo to S-fest '05 and that
would eclipse the FD, but I don't think you're getting that kind of setup
for $10k.

I would keep the FD- the R1 is a very rare model and worth holding on to
unless you find a serious enthusiast to buy it and you're happy with the
sale price.
