Wow, stunning build. Hard work and talent shows though.
Did you buy the car with the VG33 in it?
No, It had a Vg30 that had over 200,000 miles on it and so I decided to just do a redo with a vg33 and then add some goodies like, cams, equal length headers and 3" exhaust.
Did you enjoy the VG33 motor?
Yes, but that being said I learned a lot over the years after I put the VG33 in the car and built several sr20 powered cars at SPRISO motorsports. That changed some of my preferences and ideas of what I like for power.
I currently have a SR20DET powered roadster that is just so much fun to drive and could not be happy with the power output of that engine.
Does one ever sell a car like this once its done, or does it become part of the family heirloom?
Well that is a really long drawn out answer that I will say I offered it some people forsale with the VG33 but really no one was very interested at the time and so I said I will throw a new engine in it and it has to be Turbo'd and see what I think of the car after that. I'm hoping to put down about 250 to the wheels and make some good noises doing it.
