more ground clearance that I thought but it also sticks out a little further. I just pulled out my 12a turbo rotary engine to upgrade to this. It will be for the street and the hills, maybe a lil sand here and there.

I couldn't get the rotary tuned out and the v6 fired right up after about a hour of wiring. I still have the rotary (background). I am hoping the v6 will be a lot better on gas than the rotary. I am only gonna keep it at factory boost for a while 5 lbs. It puttin down 210hp and about the same torque at that psi.

how well will my 3 rib bus tranny handle the power? I have 31 inch mud tires also.

yeah I wanna close off the inside from the out side in the rear. I started the post "filling in the blanks". There are 2 fiberglass seats the go in the rear for passengers. yes 4 bucket seats pretty much. the fronts are toyota MR2 seats which are really light. batt is on passenger side along with the aluminum tubes for water. there is a diamond plate piece that covers the tubes inside the car. I am bustin my ass to get it ready for labor day or maybe sand lake soon.

its not gonna be fast Shocked

well I got the seats and rear pieces in as much as possible. took it for a drive just down the street. this thing really gets up and goes. I am still running stock boost 5lbs and I couldn't even floor it all the way. I revved it up and took off in second gear and it smoked the tires a little(form second gear dig). still hope I have it ready enough for the weekend coming.

make sure you upgrade torsion bars, as well as the center section of the rear torsion housing. otherwise, that much weight will tear it up. i have a blown 3.8 in mine. dont let anyone tell you that heavy beast wont fly
