    VT Engines 324cid shortblock??

    I think Akuma is running this setup, but Im not for sure. Does anyone know of anyone else who's running one? I'll have the Cobra by the first of April and plan on getting ready for a 324cid aluminum block and maximum motorsports front suspension swap come fall or winter. A 2.4KB will be goin on it too.

    I wouldn't waste the money on a VT short or longblock anymore. When Akuma did it, it was the best out at the time.

    Seriously, buy Waynes cobra. Gank the crap tan interior out and the blown engine, buy the $$3500 5.4 DOHC shortblock for sale locally here in Phoenix (http://saleenpower.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1278) and build it up right. If your going to replace the front suspension, it means your going to do the back as well I'm sure. The mileage on the car won't even matter if you do it right.

    VT engines are very high quality. They may be some $$$ but you get what you pay for.

    I would buy Waynes car if it wasnt red. I hate red. His car is a decent deal price wise for AZ, but I plan on buying in the midwest. I can get a very low mileage 03/04 for $23-$25K. Hell, a year ago I had the chance to buy a mineral gray 03 in southern Indiana with 18K miles for $20,995. Wish I could have swung the payment at the time.
