Default Friend is building a turbo NA

Teaser: '90 NA that *might* get a widebody. This will be a decent build for a purpose of having a fun street/track car. Right now I'm trying to convince him to do a V-band turbo. Power goal is around 280 whp / 240 wtq.

PS: Said friend has a welder so we will try to make as much things ourselves

Here is a list of some of the things I'm proposing:
  • 8.6:1 84mm Supertech pistons / Manley rods
  • P&P VVT head
  • Supertech valvetrain
  • Square top intake manifold
  • Megasquirt PnP
  • 6 speed
  • Torsen
  • 11" front brakes, 1.8L sport rear brakes, prop valve

Make sure the torsen is a 3.6 unit, or at least a 3.9. Pics of project car?

I'm leaving rear end choice to my friend. I've already suggested OSG ECU and turbo choices are still up in the air as well. Pictures after I take a look at the chassis this weekend.

Why? Getting a 6puck is one of the stupidest ideas ever.

It's a sprung 6 puck. Needs a little adjustment though.

this build is for fun when ever i feel like having fun. i have other vehichles i can depend on for daily driving. but this will be my (really quick) grocery getter and since i run a towing company once its good enough to do so. will be towed to race tracks for some more fun! the idea here is to build it for the track but still be able to drive it on the street. ps this build is nothing like aids. its more like gonorhea. really bad and painfull. but curable!!!
