car is getting its wires tucked, engine bay shaved that is why the primer is on. specs on the setup are kind of a secret. it is a special combo that makes everything fit like it belongs. this swap doesnt require cutting but it will be a little front heavy that way...i did opt to cut some bracing and modify the firewall enough to push the engine back an additional 3.5 inches. and due to the stripping/shaving/tucking of the entire front end the car is now lighter than stock and is very close to keeping its original weight distribution. i have deleted the abs and moved the battery to the rear also to help, i think i may have to put it back.lol

Very Nice! I like.

May need that ABS with that much crack. Also, why not put an S/C up on top and then add a big fat hood intake?

it has a tremec tko600 tranny in it.. not sure on the rear diff yet. leaning towards a viper rear diff or the nissan r200 or 230. definately keeping it irs though. shooting towards 450rwhp on motor. maybe some nitrous after that
