I've realized after having a couple nice cars as daily drivers that when you drive 25k+ a year not only are you spending a ton of money in gas and maintenance, 3 years into a five year loan the car has lost a crap ton of value, has 100k miles, and the likelihood of major problems starts to exponentially increase.
I don't think I'd even go up to $10k. A realistic beater budget for me would be $3-5k, I guess riding around in enough stripped down trucks makes you realize how little you actually need.

There are a handful of shops in Dallas and a couple in Fort Worth that build some pretty impressive Coyotes so I think I would be fine. I would definitely do my homework before actually letting any of them touch my car though.

520 HP will certainly be enough but more never hurts. 600 HP/475 TQ with a mild S/C set up would be cool for my car.

I tend to side with going with a beater that's fun, so if I modify it and beat the **** out of it and possibly break it I still have a nice car to use. Driving a turd sucks, driving a fun turd is fun. Though I will say sub 40 handling of a new gen civic is surprisingly good.

600hp on your stang would be fun on the street/drag

520hp n/a high reving hp in a lightened stang + a tuned suspension would be fun everywhere, except maybe snow.
