I've had my white 850 for 3 years now. I bought it for $500 back in November of 07, put thousands of dollars into fixing and upgrading it but the junkyard engine was never good and the auto tranny, well, is an auto tranny and needs to go. I had all the parts accumulated last year but wound up transplanting everything from the 98T5M donor into the 98R for a FWD manual swap. Last year I had little confidence in my abilities to do the swap but several of you encouraged me, Justin and Hussein were always available when I had a question. This year I have much more confidence. (probably just enough to do some real damage to the 850
Here's what I have in store for the 850: power goal is 300 at the wheel(s) with a better platform to upgrade later if desired...and of course there will be a desire : )
- M56L with 134K, short shifter, etc.
- 02 B5234T3 out of a C70 with 87K, disabled VVT

Profec EBC Gizzmo ICB-rstock BCS
