How was the conversion? I remember you saying no cutting is needed when using the C4 trans.

Conversion was not easy as i did not want to cut towers or tunel everything has been customised around those areas to fit, e.g exhaust/ intake manifolds. Engine mounts and trans crossmember were modified and engine pushed forward to clear the c4 bellhousing.

Very nice work. I've never driven a BF or FG V8, but my daily drive is a chipped FG6ET - in my experience, what turbo's lack in sound, they make up for in shove  :omg:

Video of idle. Not bad for a 6 cyl.

Wow - sounds pretty tuff!

Loved the power curve on the Dyno, lots delivered REALLY early there, the experience of that would require a strong seat-back...

There's a nice feature on Zlat's car in the July 2019 Street Machine mag (pg 54).
