I like everything about this
I will try to get a picture of the engine in the bay. It sits lower than you might think. As stated, there is more weight up higher now but with a different exhaust manifold (read tubular) and the turbo mounted lower it will become less of an issue. When we corner balance it I will post up the numbers.pkw said:lighter? huh, I would not have guessed that with everyone saying how heavy the vr6 is.
I do not mean to keep tweaking what is not mine but have you considered mounting the engine in the middle, if not too long? that would really be the fix. could have room in back for the turbo, air/h2o ic, exhaust system and even some storage.....course, no more back seats but really, did those count?
Thank You. I had waited to post anything until after it was running. Did not read any of the threads about this or even know of their existence until after the post here was made. It was then that my first post was edited, adding links to other forums. Too busy wiring it up to even care I guess. Still though it is sad to hear anyone bad mouth another's project build unless it was done by taking advantage of others. Even the Porsche dudes on the Pelican site did not criticize the choice of a Vr6. MG ROCKS!Alloutofdonuts said:Cool! Looks like a badass machine, camo looks mean too. I started to read the vortex thread but got burnt out on idiots bashing it. Thanks for posting it here.
yes, its just a car. People get to horney on p-cars. They are sweet, but they are not that rare. Its just a bunch of metal plastic rubber and glass.crappyoldaudis said:Am I the only one who is saddened and offended by this project? I like the paint job tho
I personally would've gone with an 07K, but I've seen much worse swaps into 911's... carbed 350's and 4G63'scrappyoldaudis said:Am I the only one who is saddened and offended by this project? I like the paint job tho
