That's great! It's not often you see subs in the back of a racecar!

500whp on stock block? It is the perfect motor in our cars for road racing.. just curious if there is a large weight difference. I am definately looking to do this in the future.. either do it or buy one with the swap already

i love the sr20det but have been recently overplayed I think...with the whole drifting scene blowing up it seems like it's all people talk about... hasn't anyone heard or ka-t.org?

You kill 2 birds with one stone. Better engine connected to the all important better transmission.

Very cool car dude.

I literally lol'd.

ka-t.org? yah that was my home before I found this one.

SR is seriously played out, it's a good engine but so is the BP and the KA. Seems like a lot of work when the engine already in the car is decent.

I'm not knocking your car, I think it's cool. I just don't like all the SR bandwagoners.

Eh... the KA isn't that good a block IMHO. While I do think people need to look at other options than SR I would go with CA, its really more like the RB motors but it has 2 less cylinders, it revs higher and just has a better spirit about it.
