    i dont get the first one. loud, and slow to get up and go. No hp all torque. mehh not my cup of tea.

    the second one was a little better. Didnt show to much speed but the idle was badass. The air ride was the shit too.Unfortunatley it looked like a fucking roach on wheels. that thing was hideous!

    I'm already in the process, back off, jerks.
    Not an S2000 motor though. Too dependant on an ECU that wants a Honda to talk to.

    I'm getting rid of my Chevy Vega body in favor of placing that beautiful Cosworth engine in something like a pre-war sportster (Think old Aston / Bugatti)

    I have built a Celica Motor (The Celerity Swan Song of celica motors) and that will be going in a "rat rod". But the "rat rod" won't be so ratty, and alittle more steampunk. Work continues on it.

    And I have a bundle of money saved up to pounce on a Dune Buggy here, that will be receiving something along the lines of a motorcycle engine.

    I saw an article on an old tr6 or tr8 with an rx7 13b in it. I think a rotary turbo setup would be great in a t bucket. Ridiculous r's in a rat rod, sweet:p.

    I want a 32' highboy fenderless roadster with either an NSX V6, 6-71 blower and straight pipes, or a 2JZGTE complete with a large turbo hanging off the side of it, blowing in the wind. Along with an open 4" dump tube and WG tube.
