yeah but the $35000 one doenst have a 1.6L and that's worht $15,000 alone right there.


plus, while your little rotrex will make the same HP, it will make 1/4 of the torque.

Nice car. Still needs 4500 dollars worth of coilovers, though.
The ls6 and 2000+ ls1 are pretty reliable with regard to oiling. With the custom oil pan, assuming it's done properly, and the 3 quart accusump, this car should be ready for some G's.

If I won the lottery I'd love this as my track car. And I'd make my mixed (up) DD/track car back into a DD only.
