Yes and no. I do have an FC convertible, but it has an L33 in it. That's the aluminum block 5.3L motor from Chevy extended cab pickups. It has a T56 behind it.

Before that, I had an FC coupe with a built LS1/T56 combo. I did a track day it in and the power was phenomenal. It overwhelmed the stock 4 pot Turbo II brakes!

We never did get a chance to try it with fresh hipo pads and a new caliper on the left front. It was fun pulling on the Cobra Replicas even if we couldn't stop as well.

I am aiming squarely to trounce that "record". I would like to get it below 2700, eventually, with lots of composite work.

Composite work. Do you mean CF or fiberglass?

More Carbon than FRP, but likely a mix of the two.

Wow, $$$$$ or did you figure out some way to do it on the cheap. If you figured out how to do it on the cheap I really want to know how.
