thanks, lol, the "moddy" took around 8 months to get it to the tire burning stage you see here in the vid! not to take all the credit myself, my best friend Brian did his fair share of the work as well!

it was fun to build, but even more fun to race it this year at the terrace bay dragfest. it now sports hoosier drag slicks and a 150 shot of nitrous! lol i ran a 14.0 as my best time.

How can it be that slow?????? with nitrous it should be what? 350-400hp? shouldn't that easily be in the 13's????????? I'll be in the 14's with a 2.8 ..........

I am impressed! Any details on the swap?

fstrthnu
12-12-2010, 08:59 PM
what kind of details would you like? and as far as how can it be that slow? i dont know man, i still have some bugs to figure out it seems, lol, its running right? to me thats sucess, i plan on going faster and figureing some more stuff out, but these little axles arent holding up! and as far as the diff goes, ya its holding but i had to flip it upside down so the wheels would turn the right way! its getting an 8.8 irs from a supercoupe this winter! and id also like to add a 5 spd tranny, as im currently rocking a completley stock AOD! all the "why didnt you do this" and "why didnt you do that" questions can all be answered simultaneously and in advance, so here it is... i dont have a lot of money. lol i just did what i could afford and what i thought was cool.

Wheres the motor you pulled out...[o_o] I like audis with audi motors, Haha but my area is heavily populated with fox bodys

12-12-2010, 09:31 PM
You still running the A4 trans? If so (looks like it), how did you mate the motor up to the trans? What kind of fabbing did you do to get the motor to mount right?
And yes, I was curious why you left an auto in there, but hey, money doesnt grow on trees as we all know.

There's actually quite a few GM & Ford engine to VW & Audi transmission adapters on the market. A lot of GT40 kit cars use them. Example (http://www.gt40s.com/forum/gt40-tech-powertrain-transaxles/24018-ls1-audi-01e-adapter-complete.html)

When are you hooking up the nitrous?

fstrthnu
12-13-2010, 05:51 AM
the nitrous is already in! and i dont understand? what drivetrain am i using? 5.0 motor, stock AOD tranny (from mustang), and stock audi diff!

What province are you in that allows nitrous? Alberta?

fstrthnu
12-13-2010, 03:22 PM
ontario, and im not sure they allow it....lol but i use it all the time!

dowsett6
12-13-2010, 03:28 PM
Awesome, Where abouts in Ontario?

And they dont allow it haha. You can have the tanks in the car as long as they aren't "active." Which I would state as either unhooked from the lines, or shutoff with a shutoff valve.

If I end up getting some tanks, then I am just going to do electric shutoff valves so if I get pulled over by the MTO I can just switch them off and purge the lines of any pressure.

ive never had a problem so far. and im in thunder bay. where are you from?

12-13-2010, 05:48 PM
I'm in Belleville. I have seen a bunch of MTO vehicles starting to drive around just in the last month. I heard a couple weeks ago that they were doing busts all over Ottawa to cars they thought were modified. Checking basically for removed cats, and other emission crap, and getting people for HID's in non-projectors. Kind of makes me want to install a cat on my car for next summer.

$150 or $1500?

fstrthnu
12-13-2010, 09:57 PM
thats right $150 buks! didnt even need a light bulb for a safety! the car had no reverse so the guy that i bought it off of thought it was junk (yuppie) lol, my gain, i saw it on kijiji, local classifieds add and threw him this low ball offer and he accepted, the next day i drove her home, saftied it and drove it all summer problem free once i cleared the mil light with my $80 obd 2 code reader from crappy tire! turns out it was a code for the tranny range switch, presto i had reverse again. once the turbo blew, and the power got to be even less than stock, i puller her in the shop and came up with this idea! 8 months later shes a success!

make a photobucket account and post from there

you guys realize that a 5.0 is only 210 hp... adding a 150 shot will give him 360 to the crank.... drivetrain loss plus heavy car and auto = slow

i took my elim car and smashed a notch back 5.0 with minor mods

FUUUUU

I don't want a cat :(

Somehow I don't even get a second look from most cops, even with a lowered car, front mount, pink wheels, and now a BOV :)

I don't want one either, I love shooting flames. But I don't really want to get caught without one either.

depends on the area, when you go north a bit, they stop having to do it.
