My cousin and like to dabble in making British cars very fast. My Triumph TR6 - bowtie6 - has been running a V6 from a Camaro for the past 4 years and has been awesome.

My cousin's Triumph TR4 has something unique: an ECOTEC from a Pontiac Solstice - including the five speed gearbox and a bunch of trick bodywork.

My TR6 had a frame failure a few months ago and now a new scratch built frame is being made for it. The V6 is being ditched in favour of a 2.4 litre ECOTEC also from a Solstice. The suspension is also being uprated to handle the power from the ECOTEC.

You might find my website of interest... There is a video of the TR4 and quite a few pictures. New content is being added on a regular basis too...
