What are they going to use the car for? (i assume drag). Whats their best 1/4 time so far? Build specs on the engine? And why they dont take off those ugly Castrol graphics?

the car is going to be used for fun track driving. just general fun.. ( there is no place to drag race here in norway..)

the engine is a REALLY modified 2 gen 3sgte engine. ( page 4 to 6 there is some pictures of the engine.. )

Unreal. I'd love to here how long the engine lives and more about the wet sleeves. Intersting

How do the sleeves get wet when there isn't a cooling system as I can see.

while u r right i cant see the cooling system, i assume its there other wise he would have grout filled the block after all hollows are a waste of space and strength

Some pretty clever methods in that build. I like how they carried the Castrol colors into the suspension components and whatnot.

Whoever did their aluminum welding, though, must have been pretty damn drunk.

Lots of fast, loud things.

would help with weight distribution...... if you were interested in track work lol.
i like the cutting of the upper radiator support bar. did he reinforce this after or is it just left cut?
