yes the stock bumper works, after a lot of "modding" (cutting). We like the stock bumper cause its really light.

Honestly, there isn't much of an exterior to see! Everything is stripped off or chopped up and in rough shape. The cosmetics is the last of our worries.
When we get the engine running to a tunable state, then we will take the motor out and do a full build on it. It is at that time the interior and exterior will get some love!

Found an old pic of the car from its old glory days! But its really different NOW!



We have the motor running now, with the Autronic SMC ecu, we are just going to get the fuctions on the car to run before we take the engine out, (which is later this week we hope). We want to get this done asap, but it depends on how long it takes to build the engine. Body work is easy!

It moves under its own power without any problems now. We just want to get all the little things wireed up (launch control, anti-lag, gauges). At this momment the SVX motor internals are STOCK.

Its an SMC. The other ECU offerings from Autronic are called SM2 or SM4. I didnt think the SMC had anti-lag and traction control, wasnt that just the SM2 or did you get the upgrades?

I think it would be fun to test the limits of the stock internals.

The SMC has anti-lag, it doesn't have traction control.
We were thinking for runnign the stock engine to its limits, but this is the only SVX motor that we have! And we don't want to blow it up to the point where we can't fix it. The last thing we need is the rod to snap, and then screw up the entire motor.

you shouldnt need to hook anything additional up for anti-lag, you just have to set the right settings on the ecu for it to operate.

Its not actually a coupe, its a 4-door still. You just can't see the rear doors because of the wide body kit.

We have its running now, and WOW does it pull with only 7psi (still stock motor)
