Bewell,
Any chance your group will want to install other types of engines...like a 300 h.p. four cylinder Ford Racing OHV engine into a Focus? Send me an email or visit my website for details.

I do have a prepared block drilled to accept a V-8 Ford small block cylinder head ready for delivery.

Best regards,

tom,
don't worry about paint, n.o.s., turbo or anything else.
just how much car lengths do i have to spot you to shut you up once and for all. 15? 20?.
how about, you get 2/3 down the track and i drive in reverse?

seriously now. i hope to have this thing dialed in for orlando, and if you are a good boy, i may let you drive it. maybe you and i will come up with a neat turbo setup. (i know you are dying to do it)

tom,
by the way, you do know that the entire conversion only weigh's about 200 lbs more that the stock car, even with the heavy old v8.
hell, if i take out the back seats, i just made up for the difference.

if tom learns how to hook up, even that big v8 is gonna have to work hard to beat 450whp+

naz,
right now, we will both have to learn how to hook up.
i have a ton going to the wheels, but until i get some real wide slicks, all i can do is smoke the sh$$ out of tires. i am waiting for some new race rims to come in. then a little tubbing and i will be there.
i do know it will be alot easier for me to hook up. tom will have much more of a problem. front wheel drive is still a bitch to set up..
don't forget, my engine is pure stock and it has 345 hp. put a little of this and that and we have 700-800 wheel h.p.
we all know how to do that on a small block. it truly is unfair for me to whip tom with a stock v8. after all, he has alot more into his car than i do in mine..(ha-ha)
see ya in orlando

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I do think your going to have to do a bit more than "this and that" to get into the 700-800hp range...

i think high 500's is alot more in reach. If you were planning on doing 700-800hp, why didn't you just have a differnt motor built before hand

do you know anything about a gt-40 crate motor?
if you did, then you may not have answered the way you did.
i may agree that i may add a little more than "this or that" but
if you can get over 400 hp from a 4 cyl, why do you think that 700 from a v8 is that hard?
(i have done it before)
