OOps, one more- have you decided which tranny you're going to use?
We'll be stripping the car completely. All things equal, the difference is something like 200lbs rotary vs. SBF+Blower.
Most of that weight is out front, BUT, we have the option of shifting weight like the battery to the back. We will need to run stiffer springs up front at least.
The trans is a function of what we ultimately decide the car should be. The choices are 4 speed manual vs. C2 automatic.
