Did you build this thing for drag racing, or for handling (even with the big LSx lump up front), and just want to see "what she will do" in the 1/4, despite the road race type suspension??

A little of everything. I just build it to be a well rounded, fun street car.

Also, I believe the difference between the 8 cylinder lump and the stock 4 cylinder one is about 40 lbs. Most of the weight was picked up from the T56 and 3" duals...so about the same as having a passenger in the car. A small price to pay for an additional 350hp/tq over stock

How does it drive on the street? Easy to modulate? Is yours the triple as well?

COOL! (MUCH cooler than the old small blocks, Ford 302s, or even the latter, iron block LT1s most seem to throw into those go karts!)

But that HAD TO BE an iron block 4 pot, correct??

Do they still use iron blocks , even in the new one?

I used to work for ptg bmw team. So we were cleaning house and i paid nothing for my tilton. I did have to buy the button, auto flexplate, qtr master hydraulic release bearing to make it work. Thise cost around $600 back in 07. The car drives fine. These are torquey engines. No need to rev the **** out of it to get goin.

Did you get the SPEC "X" trim or the "D" trim?

Once I actually stopped and thought about what you guys were telling me about rotational weight, it made me think totally different about my new set up. Quite simple but frequently overlooked IMO.

I got the d trim. There's actually only 2 clutches the r trim normally comes with a lighter flywheel while the d is heavier. But in ls cars they only make 1 flywheel so the r and the d are the same. The x-trim is a triple disk idk if the fractions are any different however. Hios buddy ran one but I suspect because of the 3 disks it's going to be harsher than the twin disk d trim
