I'll be happy with 700hp, but it should be good for 850. 70mm turbo, built motor

they are mustang shorty headers.

Subscribing for the build. Looks good so far, I'm curious about the headers as well.

the headers are ford 302 headers with flanges swapped. I have a spare set of mac headers(used but nicer than mine) if anyone else wants to do a setup like this....$100 plus shipping

engine is an iron block bored to 3.91 with forgd internals ls6 heads, turbo cam.

Ive been told by the shop to do the cage right I would have to cut the roof and reweld it back on. Is this true? kinda scary.

there are plenty of 240sx with cages where the roof dont have to be cut. trust me on that one. I think a co called agency power makes a cage for our cars, I was going to by one too.

the cage is in, no cutting or holes in the floor. they tacked the hoop & halo, then leaned it forward to weld it.

looks great , I'llpost pics soon.

not so sure what it will weigh, but it wont be much, its gutted except for dash and door panels.
