I've been debating on whether or not to swap the engine out instead of going the Turbo route (especially with my insurance not being affected).
Any idea on how much work would be involved in swapping out the 2.4L Ecotec that's in there for an LS1? I know Mallett Cars just did an LS2 swap and they only had to beef up the transmission, other then that it handled the load.
Just spoke with Mallet today at SEMA. Said the only way to make it all integrate properly was writing his own software using the '06 Solstice computer to make it work. Might want to look in to that part of it more before diving in.
the only problem i see with that weekend racer is that the top's lines drop below the apillar.it makes it look choppy.if the top window line started off the top of the windsheild it would flow so much better.Has pontiac not produced any hardtops yet?Will they be released later or did they decide to release them at all?i was under the impression both versions would be available once the car was out there with the turbo following but i havnt heard anything of anyone buying a hardtop.
Hennytime, is that SRT-4 you mention in your sig really that fast, or are you taking a crack at the FWD 4-cylinder crowd? Just wondering....
well... ummmm u cant run a 10 from a roll... if u run a 10 from a roll well then ur not runing a 10... ur runing how ever much time it took you to get to the "roll speed" plus 10... uhhh yeah im pretty sure thas what he meant and that his taking a "crack at the 4-cylinder crowd"... but maybe at his track ur alowed to run ur car from a roll and he does run a 10(even then its still not fast)... at least here in california im pretty sure u gatta run ur car from a dig and that roll's don't count
