oh dino..........., I thought you were digging up some 411 on the v8 supra. well...., 87 It's hard to say and I am not the guy to ask. and as it happens I have yet to have my nightly bong hit's either. but deriously dino. If I am going to rebuild my car from basically ground up, I may want to put a 32 valve v8, I'm going to need a lexus tranny and everything. Supra on top, high output lexus underneath?????? any thoughts'?
hey 87...., it takes some of these more serious guys to answer back in a few days. I'm just a week end goof. no one here takes me seriously. well there are a few that do but anyhow, keep asking in different different threads inside this forum.
Well thanks for talkn to me at least, the lexus v8 sounds pretty cool, what kind of horse power you lookn for? if you want some big power for a little bit of dough, i hate to say it but stick a 383 chevy in it for around 2k, the place is called powerhouse the add is www.enginekits.com it was puttin out 444tq@3,600 & 375hp@5k, a buddy had a v8 lexus it ran real good i was suprised how quick it was, later
I'm just trying to think of another way to go. A V8 not to mention the entire tranny. Alot of money. Nuw let's think of what kind of money goes into a 7m???? who even knows. The speed I want from the car just having an na v8 would be tight. I think if you did it right, a single turbo would be a close race in any class. BUt then let's think after you know you have the transmission and you find a heavy duty clutch, I mean a workhorse of a clutch. And ofcourse my ride has no spoiler, I'd be a total sleeper. I could even drop down to 15 inch wheels. And just put a bramd new pair of those cheap walmart tires on it once every other month. BUt with the 15 inch wheel......., damn you'd be shifting gears quick and it would be like a jet taking off. you would definitley turn many many heads. Then if you turbo charged it...., you'd find some guys that would go ...., but I bet you'd be outlawed at the tracks, or atleast the ones that weren't open to the public and then is iff'y. It would be extremely wrong I think but I bet you could do it with chevy parts even cheaper.
If you want, stick th350 or 400 tranny, with a med stall it would be a bullitproof rocketship, if you like the manual tranny find a wrecked 93 v8 camero it should have the viper 6spd, a buddy has one its all alum with the alum flywheel and spec stage3. but, i dont want to keep pushin chev parts.
