Default Daytona prototype as track car. Need info.

Hello,

A buddy of mine wants to buy an old Crawford DP car for a track car. Anybody here has any experience dealing with these cars?

The plan is to use a cheap 4.6L ford motor with dry sump conversion and run it with a ford racing ecu or reprogrammed ecu.
The cost of the daytona spec (Bosc MS4.3) ecu and harness etc seems a little too expensive for a track car.

Thanks.
-Raj

I think that dude needs to get a job instead of tracking someone's old crap. Doesn't he have standards?

If you are being dead serious... Ford sells the new 5.0 Boss302r motor as a crate with an ecu, I would pair that with the new adapter for the dog box and rock out.. That would be a ridiculous track car. I like. What does the car actually come with?

He is dead serious about it. We were actually talking about getting the 5.0 crate motor for it. It would still need to converted to drysump. He has some connections with elan motorsports and maybe they will have a leftover modular motor with drysump setup from their LeMans days or when they were supplying Robertson racing FordGT. The car is already setup for a modular motor, so it should be a simple drop in.

It comes as a complete car setup for a ford modular motor minus the engine and ecu. It has a motec data acquisition IPU electrical setup, etc..

Pretty kickass...but I'd wonder about the cost of fabricating new parts.

What do Radicals cost?

A pileup might be very expensive. He has a nice Panoz GTWC track car, he just wants a DP car to have fun. He is 63 yrs old and retired, hopefully not gonna try to break track records with it.

He bought the car. It is missing most of the Motec hardware and some wiring harness.

Here is a picture of the car:

He wants to re-create the car just the way it was raced.

I'm sure MS3 would really compromise the racing pedigree of the car, lol. Tell him to have fun blowing money out of his ***.

If he can afford to buy what we see, I do not think he had any problem with blowing money out of his ***. Really I am just jealous.

Raj, tell him that he has 2 months to get that thing ready to show off at the Mitty.
