    seen it before... but i just realized that thing is in Indiana... and it looks rather familiar.

    I used tow ork at meijer with a guy that dropped a V8 into his old school Cavalier and it torque steered everywhere...

    I'm wondering if that guy moved to Marion and swapped his new Cavalier (he got a yellow one just like that) <_<

    That radiator is in the worst possible location it could be. If you don't mind replacing a radiator after every speed bump(including fluids) then hey it's not a problem for you
    10 mpg? :ghey:
    His reason for building it was kinda cool though.

    yeah i love how he made it sound like it would be something you'd like to drive often. i doubt it takes the turns too well and i'm surprised the stock suspension can handle that weight up front. nice engineering though

    not too bad for a cavalier. the swap looks clean and well done, not some hack job like a lot of V8 conversions.
