DeathRat is on a distinguished road
Default DeathRat has returned!

I'm back again to stay this time. I found that my services here are needed once again for providing quality advice & info. For all who missed me, I'm staying for good this time. For all who hate me, well live with it! With this re-instatement come certain things I must state here to all members of this forum. I was childish to publically degrade Jeff on his own forum. For that I am truely sorry. To do what I did was in short, uncalled for. I would like to publically thank Jeff now for re-instating me once again. I will not participate in ANY lynching of ANY member here ever again. As for the past, well let'* just forget & move on with our lives.

Cool.

And now for a totally off the wall question.

Do you think it would be completly sacrilegious to put a Mitsibuishi 3000 GT VR-4 Drive train in a Bonneville?

Yeah but I can get 700-750 HP out of the 3000 GT along with AWD, traction control, and all wheel steering(not sure if I could get it to work on the bonne chassis but would be cool to try).

It might cost less but who will have the most fun from it is what really counts isn't it? So in this case we BOTH WIN!

Heh yup.

I am still doing research for this and I can't take my car apart till I get a second new one to drive. Makes this a long term project but an interesting design/engineering study at least.

If they sell Sport Compact Car where you are go pick up a copy and check out their Ultimate Street Car competition. They preview the ten cars this month then post the competition results next month. The last car previewed is a 3000GT VR-4 Spyder with an estimated 700 HP. There are only a half dozen or so AWD Chassis dynos in the country so verifying HP in an AWD car with the motor in it is a real bitch.

I had thought of this before I saw that car but reading the specs on it pretty much sealed the deal
