I have a bit of extra weight in my car with a large amp, sound deadener, etc. but was driving alone. The Carolina Dyno car had a passenger so I am guessing weights were close? Anyways, their car could pull about 4-5 car lengths on me on the front straight at CMP with both of us getting a reasonable exit out of last turn. It was a very fast car!
    We had a great time with you out there, hopefully we'll see you next year. Beautiful car as well, glad to see you driving it like it should be driven.

    Ben, assuming you make a kit, how many changes would be necessary to fit the Honda engine in a Rossion?

    I doubt a kit would ever be made. Too many variables to deal with. The inconsistency between chassis makes it difficult to build mounts that would work across the board.

    The main things you need for a Kseries to work is:
    1. engine mounts. Pretty easy for any fabrication shop to build, as they don't need to incorporate any isolation methods... just weld up brackets to the stock chassis mounts.
    2. axles. Driveshaft shop to the rescue. Custom axles are ~$1600.
    3. wiring. The scariest part, but also not as difficult. Using a Hondata KPro, you only need a dozen or so wires to hook up: ignition signal, starter, fuel pump, o2 sensor, oil press light, tach, and AC
    4. exhaust manifold. take to a fabrication shop to build.

    Everything else is pretty minor and easy.
