any of you that's seen me asking questions already on here will know i recently got a VX.
many years ago i had a lotus exige s1, so I know the form... since then my car history has had some strong highlights, I have had 5 different Audi RS4's Audi R8, lambo gallardo, Nissan gtr R35, 2 Honda NSX's, GT40 replica, several landrover dakar racers. and I build cars for fun... often from scratch
my VX is currently a turbo block with 2.2 crank rods and HC pistons. stage 2 cams and lots of headwork (valves springs etc)
I love it, except the power, i do need some more. I am not looking to match the numbers from my previous cars, but something ...... before the pandemic hit I was lent a exige 350 v6sc for a few hours, and with a friend we had a great day, and for me it was the right performance balance.
I have looked at VX220 packages and compared the numbers power to weight with both occupants, and more important torque to weight and the VX SC 260 is almost the same.
has anyone compared themselves? if I get some replies then I will go into more details of the plan, and the options I have come up with. and cover the rest of the build plan.
build starts in january, so i need to book in the engine work as im unlikely to do it myself due to two other projects in work ..... but may
