i was gonna say poor SE. I wonder why he didnt use a rear wheel drive car to make it easier for him like an old impala SS or old mustang, monte carlo... so many other choices. At least he would have a RWD tranny and v8 room to play around with, prob excess room for a heavy duty cooling rad and condenser for the A/C hehe... Then there's engine stands that are for sale as well LOL... if he wants to work on the engine first.
The trep was a poor choice, the 3.5 is packed in there, no wonder he had to cut the hood and it still sticks out like a sore thumb. I still wonder how that engine fits in there, probably no room to add in the tranny unless it takes up the rear seat and passenger, you would have the shifter in your lap or on the roof. i think the engine is way too high. There was a nicer project a while back with a rwd tranny, it was messed up too but it was all hidden. The rear wheels didnt have any shock absorbers i think but otherwise it looked just like an intrepid.
All of these homebrew engineers seem to start something crazy and then just give up bcs "they dont have time", "moving away", "getting married" which is simply BS. If they wanted it bad enough they could take it with them. Just my 2 cents on these poor cars.
BTW whats with the moter thing? He seems to use it all the time, is it the name of this motor?
