at 3500lbs, it came from behind a 7L diesel engine in a 6500lb truck the legends say.
When you try to shift 4l80e transmission, it shifts you instead.
A work in progress but the hard parts are done. New Z-rated tires for safety. Water is plumbed open loop to several areas in the engine bay and bell-housing for auxiliary cooling to prevent heat soak. Water/methanol injection will raise the octane and lower Exhaust gas temperature to below 1300*F to make it safe to street full power during the hottest parts of the day.
All wiring done using OEM fuse box junctions to maximize reliability, comes with a complete schematic, diagrams bible for every fuse and wire, and unique security/timer features not seen in any other car.
Who is this car for:
You want the power/weight of a Z06 corvette but not the price tag or attention
You are sick of paying for expensive engines that fail rapidly, need something reliable
You need a reliable daily driver that has around 700 horsepower and is also cheap and easy to maintain/fix
Before building this car I performed statistical analysis for several years to select this exact configuration as the best of the best. Currently, this is the most affordable 700hp combination in the world to maintain and the most reliable OEM style drivetrain available at this power level, with these chosen parts.
