I don't know. I'll find out is 2 weeks at the Fabi Track in Kingston Ontario.

But who really cares... it all comes back to the "sound"!!! You should hear it inside the car. so smooth

I had to look to make sure that it wasn't going to be a Grassroots Motorsports $2005 challenge car or we'd have just had to pack it in right now...

Nope. I spent too much... hell the computer to run the transaxle was $800 an the TEC3 engine computer is $2500! The wheels and tire were $1200.

I really wish cuz I really think that the car would have done pretty well.

Hey, you need any TEC advice, I've had 5 cars under my roof running TEC II and TEC III.


Great project. Looks like a blast!

I had a V8 miata with some giggle juice, loved it, got bored with it though. Put that northstar in an Elise, we'll talk. ;)

Will you be able to put the power down? How big wheels and tires did you manage to squeeze under there?

all I could afford were 225-45 17 for the rear. There are not many wheels that fit the caddy hubs. But after I sell my house and move into the new one I will start saving for some new wheels and tires for the rear. I have room to fit 17x 10 wheels with matching tires. But the car is 2500 or so pounds. I think it will do okay, especially with the traction control

Congratulations, Bill! Well done. Nice to see this project come together (I've been following your saga in the ClubMR2 newsletter).
