I would looove a crazy turbo s2000 motor. Would that be possible? Can you PM me a ballpark est on time and money?
If you have pictures and a base motor to start with I can build it. I can make a mold of the engine to build on. I have turbos. To fit the engine with turbos in the car I would need the car because all the piping for turbos takes up a lot of room.

Any chance you could craft me a Sledgehammer Callaway Corvette - now that is a project I would be more than happy for you to commence for me. For reference see: http://www.fastcoolc...ledgehammer.htm
I just looked at the site with the callaway corvette. That's one nice car. I can build it. Let me know if you are interested and we can discuss it. My email is  [email protected]

Could I just buy a new s2000 and have it shipped directly to you?

Here are just a few turbo setups in s2000's

I love the first setup but that may be a little hard to reproduce
Let me know what we can do

You could have a car sent to me and I can build it how you want. I'm sure I can do any of those combinations. Well, pretty close. I will have to do some research on them and get some really good pics. Trying to fit all that in a diecast car will be interesting. LOL.  Hopefully the engines aren't just fake covers. That would make it almost impossible. As long as the car has an engine that not all one piece with the rest of the engine compartment it should work ok.

Its kind of a weird engine bay. The head, battery, intake mani, and other accessories are all connected by a tiny strip of plastic running between them all. An easy snip can seperate them. The block is the same kind of thing attached to the chassis. So in essence its already a long block you just needs some snips and glue.  PM me a ballpark price and we can figure it out

For some reason I couldn't send you a PM. Is the engine in the car able to come out where I can make a mold of it? That way I can just build from the resin engine and make my own intake etc.

Yeah, I can work with that. Can get rid of whatever don't go on a race car and add what's needed.
