Well the piece where the linkage on the tranny goes was wider on the 318 tranny. The linkage on the 318 was longer and i had to shorten it so the pin from that one would fit on the tranny. Its kinda complicated to explain

No. It's some nice fabrication though. But on an Inline motor, single turbo is the way to go.

Uhh, ask Frank.

Shoot, you could do it in a weekend, but the little problems will build up and cause many delays.

The SS is 300hp, kinda close, but it's reliable, so that can't be it.

Gimme a year, or years of production for that model.

I couldn't sell my car, and my truck isn't worth much at all.

Uhh, I'm just ready to do my interior, fix my oil leaks, and DRIVE IT! These ballin A$$ cars with mint interiors, paint, and built motors pi$$ me off.

As for Chad's new car, my guess is an Infiniti M56. Not a confident guess but a guess.

300 isn't close to 400.

1994.

Nope, not 420lbs of torque.

Most imports don't have torque, so that rules out any Hondas, damn, that was my next guess.
