been done! this post needs to be moved into the 3.0 section!!! in fact the twin turbo 3.0's big brothers the 3.5 and 3.8 have been installed too! I have a 3.5 dohc in my 87 T top!!!anyone ever try to install a twin turbo stealth?3000gt motor into a Laser or a Daytona?? i think it would be pretty rad. or to go even further, adding the all wheel drive and steering also?
I love the idea! the only hard part is the wheel track. the stealth/3000gt have a very wide track where as the shadow is narrow. But if they can install a 426 hemi in a 76 dodge colt than we can do any thing!!!Saw the vid before, and thought it was a neat idea, but still wondering why he couldn't put the effort into making the car a little less ricey. It's plain ugly. Funny that this thread should come up. For years, a buddy and I have talked about building a "Stealthy Shadow". Basically, it is exactly what you described: a Stealth TT in Shadow clothing with all the TT AWD drivetrain and rear wheel steering components fitted to the Shadow. In keeping with the "Stealth" theme and because my buddy is also an airplane hobbiest, we agreeed we would paint the car black and provide homage to the B2 Stealth bomber. I think some aircraft like guages and a HUD would be in order along with tinting the windows and blacking out all the lights. Wheels would be either black or gun metal gray. I don't know if we will ever get down to taking on such a project, but if we do, it will be posted on the forums here. Also, I recently noticed that Acura is has recently reintroduced all wheel steering. Not sure if it will catch on again, but it is no doubt leaps and bounds beyond what anyone could have imagined in the '90s.
