Welcome along, nice to see different route to track fun.

It seems like a strange combination to me to put, what I would have thought to be, a heavy engine in such a small, light FWD car.
If your plan is more power and torque are you not going to be negating some of the gains by adding lots of extra weight?
Is there not a supercharger/turbo route to more power without gaining too much extra weight.
I might be talking utter pish so please correct me if I am.

at the moment i have had nothing but problems with the car going into limp mode ect. needing new lamda sensors map sensors ect its coosting me a fortune. i was going to go down the route of throttle bodies but not sure how easy it will be to sort the problems i have with the car at the moment. the v6 conversion is costing 2300 and i will make just over 1k on the parts i sell from the conversion. have done a bit of research on it.

quarter mile times on the v6 in a c2 with no weight reduction what so ever - 13.8

quarter mile time with my car (not running right) and at crail - 15.5 - has a bit of weight reduction

however not sure on how the v6 will be round corners as my motto is any tool can drive in a straight line .

but im sure with the right set-up it would be ok.

i can see what you are saying and have thought the same myself but the current set-up just seems to be giving me grief. although it is an awsome car to drive hense me keeping it Wink

So when you do the conversion the bits that are giving you the hassle will all be removed and replaced with currently working bits?
13.8 is a decent time down the 1/4 mile if that's where you get your fun but for me one or two days a year is my fill there.

I worry your compromising the driving attitude of your car by doing the engine transplant.
It'll sound good and if it solves your problems it'll be good.
We all like an easy life

iirc its an alloy block thats on the V6 so its not that much heavier than the JP4 - the only problem is a lack of tuning parts for them really - DP engineering do a turbo kit for it but only manage to get 304bhp out of them unforged - im sure if someone was able to forge one, and get something sorted with the power i would say 400+ would be easy - but the weight is something definately to consider for track use.

Welcome aboard anyways mate - good to see you posting on here - hope to see you on track next year with me Wink show these saxo boys what they're missing Laughing
