>Thanks for the info on the saleen maybe you were right but he sure was pissed off. to answer a few questions.. I work for a large chemical co. I'm 28... I founded Ontario Z Car.. I almost put in a turbo but decided to sell my 300 turbo doner to a friend in desperate need of a motor. I never bothered after that because I would probably really go horse power nuts and reliable turbo set ups are hard to get up here and very expensive. my motor will not get dyno tested until spring but it is estimated at over 300 horse and is guaranteed safe to 8500rpm (it sounds great at that speed!) the fastest n/a street Z up here does a 1/4 mile in 14.00 and I can beat him. lastly a n/a L28 really pisses off v8 freaks when I beat them. OH and on highway drags I took down an older Pantera, an early 90's porsche 911 and a 90's tt300zx. and as a further side note my mechanic also built 240 gt1 race car that holds the track record at Mosport for a under 3L n/a.
I welcome more comments and ideas.. thanks!

Well when it comes to handling my knowledge is very limited. All I have done is chopped and reformed the springs 5 or 6 coils (can't remember) put in tokio iluminas some urethane bushings steering rack bushings and a NHL hockey puck to replace the steering rubber donut, tower braces and triangulating supports in the engine bay shed about 200 lbs in weight spoilers and a nice wing. The car handles very well as I occasionally autocross it and take it out at Mosport and Shannonville road circuts when my club rents the tracks. I have had professional drivers drive the car and they tell me the car handle fairly neutral though they recommend quicker steering add ons which I might get done this season. It isn't the best handling z around but these projects take time.
