Pretty impressive. I wonder if it protrudes into the cabin at all.

Really? I don't see how it could look stock inside,as I'm sure alot of cutting had to be done to just get that engine and trans to clear.I wonder how the floor looks too,did he raise it up for clearance,or just cut and fab up a tunnel to clear the drive shaft?Also I wonder if he made some mini tubs,since those look to be quite large rear tires. Looks to be alot of work,but it sure turned out nice.icon_smile.gif

Ya. That car is fast and **** and slow at the same time. I bet he gets no traction at all. Mad props don't get me wrong. But I bet he would lose a good number of races(depending of course)

I bet they do have a hard time getting it to hook...I'm sure even with that swap,it's still fairly light weight,but if they put enough time in dialing the suspension in,they could get to hook and book. icon_cool.gif I'd personally like to see it yank the front wheels off the ground. icon_smile.gif

I saw pics of this on scionlife when it was under construction.
I think they had to make extra room for the tranny & drive shaft on the inside. It wasn't too bad though.

I'd love to have that bad boy!

Yeah, seen this before too, but when it was under construction. He had to cut for the rear end too and raise that. Very awesome project car. There was a video of him roasting the tires before too.
