Default my next project car

the 88-89 came with a 5 spd. So I'm thinking small block ford and twin t3 turbos- real cheap.

speaking of which- there was guy in Miami that sold his with an F8 swap and turbo ready to go for $1500. He'd just installed the engine, new clutch, aluminum flywheel, brakes- just needed paint. Made ~190whp with the original F2T ecu and no tuning. That would have been a nice DD.

I just like the idea of a big *** jap sedan with a front engine, rear drive and 5spd.

I like something more substantial.

That video of the volvo with a LSx stuffed under the hood gave me a chubby.

Ummm- an LS costs more than my entire project. I'm talking about doing on the cheap, thus a mustang v8 and two t3s stuffed in a sub-thousand-dollar-car.
