    hugh reacted to Skidmarks in FS - 3.6 motor   
    Hi all,
    I am selling my 3.6 motor which I used for IROC racing.  I'm sticking with the 3.9 I built for TCM hence selling.
    It's a 3.6 based on a 3.2 litre case.  This engine has the best of everything.  I don't stuff around when I get motors done.
    Yes its a race motor but still very tractable and able to be used on the road.  
    It has GE80 cams, flowed and ported heads, fully balanced, GT3 crank, Pauter rods, high flow competition oil pump (this cost $3,500.00 alone ...),  lightwieght JE pistons, 46 IDA PMO's, 11.5:1 compression (runs nicely on 98 but does love a drop of the 102 ...), twin spark with single distributor (not 964 style), safely revs to 8000 rpm all day long (I should know ... 😄)   ... you get the drift ...
    Dyno's at around 330+ bhp with a very fat torque curve.  It was built by Michael Garner at Autoart.  Its never missed a beat.  Oil and filter changed after every 2 races.  Feel free to call Michael if you want more detail from the man himself.
    Selling complete from air box to exhaust ports (no headers or muffler).
    Asking $35,000.00.  Everyone says it but ... you couldn't build it for that.
    Ideal motor for that fast road car.
    PM me if you're interested.

    The 997 looks very pretty, but the performance step up over 996.2 is not big enough to justify 30-40 grand IMO. 996.2 is aging gracefully!

    Harold,
    A couple of recent pics of TNT. To answer your questions mine has airjacks & most of the original interior in place (excluding carpet, door cards & centre console). Sadly no aircond....would be great for hot track days !!
    Cheers

    @James P do you know how much of the interior of the cars was original during the Nations Cup period and if things such as air con etc were left in the car? I ask this as my car has obviously been through a number of iterations and now doesn't have the rear original parcel shelf finishing etc. Also the car has no air bags nor the original side trimmings. We're stereo bits etc all taken out or left in the cars. Is fitzy on this forum? Would love to get his feedback and stories here. 
    James are you on fb? Would be great to start a fb page on Nations Cup and slowly try track down all the other competitor cars and their current owners as well. 
    @hugh saw one of the Diablos a little while back as well and has some pictures of that beast. Not sure if it was the 2000 car or the 2001 car though.

    Mate any progress pictures of the work on the car? Would love to see it. 
    The Falken Racing ex Fitzgerald car when it was briefly painted red. Also note the doors and door windows were lightweight items since back to original. The bumpers were at this stage no longer the original but lightweight plastic items (still on the car but repainted). Air jacks and running the cup engine and those horrible rims at this stage. The front lights were the proper clear lights as raced during Nations Cup, but since obviously sold off and replaced with the orange indicator versions that I bought the car with. Have the clear lights coming in on order next few days 
    Remnants of the red and silver paint can still be spotted in spots around the car but the entire engine bay and front compartment sports the original iris blue metallic together with the paint code on the chassis.

    I give up 🙄
     I understand why The Bend would want to host it (bums on seats and cash in the till) and you wouldnt find a better motorsport ambassador than Sam Shahin (races Carrera Cup and Porsche GT3 Challenge), though as world class as the track and facilities are, it won't be anywhere near as intimate as Victoria Park and basically just another track day. Its too far away from Adelaide to receive anywhere near the same crowd attendance when all costs (travel, entry, drinks, hot dogs and other crap for the kids...) are considered. I'd be amazed if they got a quarter of the public there. Personally, if it's going to be a racetrack, Mallala would be a better option, as its smaller, the crowd are closer to the action and it has more of a heritage feel to the place that would suit the old cars more than The Bend would. 
     We'll just have to see what they come up with, though there would have to be a lot of exotic machinery on hand for me to go to The Bend
