Precision, any time frame/price for that adapter kit?

Look for answers to both of those questions on our web site around the middle of February.

I think you have a vacuum line loose, there's lots of wheezing and hissing going on there

GAWD does that sound good!!

In reply to DrBoost:

The car is probably only at 75% of it's ability and potential in that video. It's going to be pretty fast after some development time.

Is it a canoe if someone posts mis-information about your company? LOL

I like your kit idea and I believe it is something we have all thought of.

I do have a few questions about your kit.

Does it fit with stock trim? (Gutted race cars are one thing but fully trimmed street cars are another) Cost? Interface with stock gauges? Need a tester? LOL

The whole reason for the race car's existence was to test the basic components of the kit (adapter plate, flywheel, and engine mounting system) so that we could use that experience to validate the designs successfulness on our car, rather than use a customer's car to do our testing on. The end goal was and still is to market our conversions as an alternative to rebuilding or replacing the expensive, under powered and problematic M96/97 engine that the Boxsters and Caymans come with. The only permanent modification that needs to be made the chassis is a little clearancing inside the engine bay to make room for the starter motor. Other than that, there will be no reason to have to change anything or any function of a stock street car.

Cost will depend largely on the components used, how cheaply the engine is sourced and how much of a do-it-yourselfer you are. If you want more detailed information about that, feel free to send us an email at precisionchassis@gmail.com
