nice trucking! 1800 pounds < 400WHP = :o
if i remember well 1whp = 6 pounds.. so that means you have around 100 whp over from what you need !!! im hearing tires spinning like crazy!

In a 1200, it's tough to put down more than 200whp... :P

I have another buddy here locally with a 327whp SR20DET 1200. I rode with him on the freeway once and he was cruising at 65-70mph, dropped it into 3rd gear, and punched it. You haven't lived until you've spun the tires at 70mph. :tu: :mrgreen:

To quote him, there's not many greater feelings than being able to embarrass a brand new Corvette on the freeway... :wink:

Me like SR swaps. :D Very nice build. That truck should have a breezy time dipping into the low 10's.

No doubt. That Coupe runs 11.87, spinning the tires all the way down the track with a standard Ute diff. The truck ought to hook up quite a bit better.

The wheels are 3pc BBS RS's. He simply bought new outside rims/lips/halves from a place in Canada called Kodiak Motorsports.

http://www.kodiakmotorsports.com/

They make custom 3pc wheels, and they make custom inner and outer rim halves for other company's 3pc wheels. :tu: :mrgreen:

The engine itself is a fairly good fit in a 1200.

But with a Greddy intake, HUGE turbo, and monstrous BLITZ intercooler, then it's a tight squeeze...

Just scrolling through the photos again :)
But with the narrowed rear end I presume the custom axles also got converted to a 4x114,3 bolt pattern?

Holy shit...

I didnt even know 1200 utes were available in the states, I'm glad someone got one that knew what they were doing, and had the money to go balls deep into the project! Very nice.
