I don't see a problem with doing this since it is his car. If this is what he wanted to do, then good for him.

I'd like to know what electrical systems that came on the car still work though. From what I've heard, everything electrical is integrated with everything else, so what had to be done to make this work? I'd like to know what transmission he used as well, because if I attempted to do this, I would have gone with a manual. I'd also like to know how much power that motor puts down, I think he said that he was going to install a turbo in the other thread.
