No nitrous, or corner cutting....but it's a secret.. I doubt he will get the viper out of the garage through, he doesn't want to put mileage on it. It's signed by Carol Shelby so it's a bit of a collector he thinks

Figured out today that the engine is in deed dead. Im not sure what my next step is, I might just buy an engine to swap in for the time being and rebuild the other when I get the time and money.

So I have decided to make the car more of a autoX/daily and one of the major things I want for this is a 6 speed with working dccd.

My question is, what is needed to do this conversion? Obviously the tranny but what else?
Also I would like to go 5x114 with the brembos

Or is there a way I can get dccd or different split for a built 5 speed as I feel the 5 speed will be better for short courses. My reasoning is that I want oversteer, not understeer.

Thanks, the search doesn't work on my iPad for some reason, neither does pm'ing. I need to delete the app and re-install it.
