    Looking good mate, I'm still looking for the right shell for mine. And still building my 53 chevy too but may be going to Malta soon for one, just waiting to see what's been found by a mate. If you need any help give me a shout mate.

    Cheers hopefully pull it apart in November, doesn't look like the subframe will need much modding to get the sr to sit on it, the pita bit will be finding an axle at a reasonable price to cope with the power

    As you look down in the engine bay the chassis lends itself quite well to have the engine chassis mounted. As for an axle, I'd 100% go for an atlas axle and throw in a quaife atb.

    So its bye bye to the (lets be generous 100 bhp?) X flow and soon hello 280? > 300 bhp (possibly or more even?) SR20
    should be an interesting slight increase in performance

    So only a 250 bhp increase then should be pretty lively
    Im not sure what will be quicker, this when up and running or the CA swapped locost in another thread on here
    iirc he estimated 450bhp per ton but it has traction issues,this may get the power down better (possibly)
    nice cool build I can relate to
