    theo woollet and one of his mates already did this at willowbank about 4 years ago.
    using a $900 volvo wagon. don't know volvo's but it was a mid 80's model that was turbo and auto. it was registered too, with only mod apparently being a bleed valve. everything certainly looked standard including shmick leather interior. after a number of low 14sec passes the driver finally got 13.
    driver was pretty brutal though, especially when getting some heat in the rears.

    my idea: mazda 121 metro 89 model motor not running $200
    94 ford laser 1.8 twincam motor $300 with everything
    mazda familia gtx running gear with broken gbox and blown headgasket $400
    swap over all the good bits between the engines to make one good one.
    gets done all the time over in the U.S, with good results. and the standard 121 gbox is aparently good for this aswell. just can't run slicks.

      I've already started with a VN commodore stripped out and ready for nos. I don't mind changing nos to turbo but I will not be registering it. If that will fit the criteria then I'm in. If not then I won't be selling it just to buy something registered just to do the same thing to it.
      Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

        Can I be the judge of this?

        Happy to pick apart people's supposed $1300 budgets, it would bring me great joy.

        Hose clamps, oil lines, bolts, manifold materials, exhausts, tailshafts, etc all add up very quickly.


        My ghetto 180b cost around $5k to get running, and ran 13.3. And i did everything as cheap as possible and re-used a fuckload of stuff I had kicking around. VG30DET, Haltech, Manualised Auto, Locked R180.

        I reckon you'd come close to $1300/$1500 with a ghetto CA18 series 3 bluebird.

        Its not what IS required, it's what ISNT'T required that makes it possible (budget wise)

        bluebird wouldn't need :

        -Diff upgrade (except a locker)
        -Gearbox mods
        -tailshaft change

            Agreed mostly.

            Don't agree with freebie parts though, all parts should be included in total $1300 at fair market rates (boostcruising.com)... Keeps everyone on a level playing field.

                      YH51 Hiace, 4Y with NOS?
                      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe, and from this side only! The flight of a half-man, half-bird. Dinosaurs nuzzling their young in pastures where strip-malls should be. Cookies on dowels. All those moments lost in time; gone like eggs off a hooker's stomach. Time to die.
