FE3 and GL Drivetrain
well, i am seriously thinking about getting an FE3 for my car since my engine has most deffinetly seen better days. i actually have dibs on a 1.8l FE3 right now which is stroked much shorter than the 2.0 and therefore should be able to rev even higher. as far as i know i can get a turbo for it from europe which will just bolt right on. being that i am from europe (germany to be exact) this should not be a problem once we find a car back home to steal the parts from.
here is my concern. will the GL Drivetrain be able to hold up to the amount of stress that it would be under from the FE3. i am not concerned about the clutch or transmission. but i am concerned about the axels and so forth. i plan to get an upgraded GL tranny pretty soon anyways and then eventually an aftermarket clutch. this FE3 wouldn't be turboed for a while and it make around 130+ HP in it's current form. i don't know how much torque it make though, but i am guessing 120+!?! :darin: i am pretty sure my GL will be able to handle that, but a turbo would be a sure thing if i get this engine.
oh, and this thing will redline at approximately 7500-8000 once the ECU is reprogrammed and everything.
so, what do you guys think???
