I'd love to hear your thoughts on driving and ownership experience between the two drivetrains. I'm often considering dropping some displacement, and this would be a useful data point.

In reply to Shavarsh :

I'm not sure how useful the data point will be, since not only am I dropping displacement I'm changing gearing adding forced induction and a whole bunch of other variables at the same time. But I will most definitely provide feedback between the two

V6 Drivetrain, camel seats, boss frog rollbar, 13x8 wheels,  nb1 projector headlights sold.

Recoup purposes, only the 75 for the 13x8 count.

But, the cash infusion back into the budget DEFINITELY helps.

So, nasty vibration still present after k1s and fresher tires weren't the problem. 

recirculating bypass valve made it behave better, and halfass reattached fallen off muffler outlet quieted it a ton. Zeroish toe now judging by eyeball, and drove it over to stus place. He then drove it a bit. I need better wastegate/boost control than teed into the vacuum line to the vacuum/boost gauge, but its a nice piece of equipment. Im excited to get it in a good car. 

It has an awesome warble to the intake tract for some reason, and i don't want to lose it.

Wideband brought back to life, and its an fic6 under the dash. Ill need to learn about both, as they are older tech and unfamiliar to me. But the system works, and works well enough to not mess with unless i have to. 

Sold black seats fpr 300 tonight. 

Listed another round of stuff.

Going to hopefully pull the v6 car apart this weekend so the buyer can cone get his swap stuff, and i can finish getting rid of the stuff i don't need kicking around.
