thats what i thought, but given coyotes are coming up now from crashed s550 for under 5grand.. and i guess there might be more wiggle room. coupled with a good intake is north of 500 bhp in a very tractable package it got the old head thinking

get a nice cheap s197 - stick in a coyote.. with what we know works - eibach springs, torsion bars, bmr control arms and panhard bar. s550 front brakes and then that is a pretty potent car....... if going for it how about sticking in an s550 IRS.....

hang on.... where doing that to a 69 ........
