I have built another calibra this summer, with Saab 2.3 turbo engine, Opel R25 / 28 gearbox and Opel Omega 3000 rear axle.
It is not for me, but for a team running on track 6h races.








Now that I'm done with it so it's time to start with the V8 project

Parts...


Recipe:
BMW m60b40 with h-rods, stronger valve springs, new bearings and seals.
Turbo that can pump air for 1000hk.
BMW E39 rear suspension with E34 diff.
Adapter for engine M50 box and a GS653dz 56kg BMW gearbox.
Maxxecu with vag coils and 1260cc injectors.
Will do  new bulkhead.
New floor from the bulkhead and rear.
Probably BMW E36 front suspension.

Steering gear found its place. This is just a test assembly to see what fits and what must be cut away.

Conman, i admire your work man.. :)

Tasty and yet as simple as it gets.

I have an original 4x4 turbo (9/93') which i am keeping as is.
And a rolling shell of a 1992 which will turn to rwd soon.
calibra's nightmare
