    ok so.... its a stroked split engine design with the heads from the RB26 and a custom block.... running quad turbos.

    making over 1000hp and weighing it at a even metric ton....

    Looks amazing .....

    Buddy has a lot of tuning to look forward to though .... unfortunately, it's going to handle like a school bus. With that much modification to the frame, width, and F/R weight ratio, he's going to have a bitch of a time trying to achieve an optimal corner balance on all 4 sides. I give that car a few years of trial and error until it would get competitive on any circut. Fucking great idea though! And gorgeous to boot! Hope he has the time to see it through!

    I thought the article made mention of the engine not weighing very much more. I read it awhile ago so I'm not positive.

    I was never doubting the engine being light .... I was just saying that with that much modification done to the frame, stance, front/rear ratios ... it's a brand new car. Car companies take years of testing to perfect the performance of their vehicles ..... this, no doubt, will take the same amount of time to get it right.

    Trust me .... 1000hp is not an easy number to tame.
