Hey I applaud his use of a non-Soob powerplant. Did you just happen to have the Chevy or is that simply the best option for your purposes? Any idea how much the whole thing weighs and how much torque and hp? Are bigger diffs, lockers and axles in the works? Very cool how you moved the front end forward. Excellent work and thanks for sharing the pics etc. Good luck at races!
Hi Mike,I used the v6 because I had a good runner and the adapter was already built.Plus the size of the engine fits well between frame rails.I had run unhatched with a v6 when I originally built it so I knew it had plenty of power.The chevy 60 degree v6 is buildable to 280 horse with stock parts.I had set a chevy v8 and auto in but decided the axles were to weak.Rather than change the whole setup I compromised for a smaller engine and more gears.It work out well because I can run the 4 & 6 cylinder classes and be real competative.I haven't weighed it yet I would guess around 2800 lbs ,and hp/torque are unknown.
