How much do you want to spend?
We need one of these questions answered to give a vaild answer.

Re: EA project idea

The EA chassis is only rated for 300 kw from memory.....

Re: EA project idea

but with a $100,000 I think you could weld in some extra chassis strenghth.
After all I doubt my cousins 76 Capri is rated for the 550hp it has.
