    Tyres can be had for like $30 a wheel with legal tread. If you allow clutches you must allow converters for autos, so thats out I think. A stock new clutch is what $130?

    The manual R31 skyline we got from Pickles for Hampton cost $150.

    That plus a turbo, a couple extra injectors, some sort of shit injector controller and homemade manifold/side pipe would do it.

    That would do it. If you can find a manual for that sort of price you will be off for an excellent start. Normally the gearbox is worth $300.

    Friend had a 7MGTE Corona Mk2. Ran 12.8 so the early Crown/Cressida/Mk2 option is a goer.

    I bought an old engineless Crown ute for $100. The scrounging for a 7M begins. By the way this thing runs 4 wheel drums.

    just peeled a kg of prawns for cocktails and came up with a few more ideas haha, really need to get the car for <$400

    Agree with chuck

    No n20
    tyres can be rwc item
    clutch yeah should be part of the $1300
    all cars to be rego'd and drive to track

    I spent an hour this morning figuring out a way to sort the fuel and ignition with jaycar bits, walbro pumps, injectors etc comes out over $500 which does not leave much for turbo bits etc. Am now thinking cheap staged methanol injection using jaycar voltage switches, a commodore map sensor, a cheap efi pump, lpg gas solenoids and reg plus engine bay tank might be an idea.

    Better start looking for cheap turbo & gate deals. I have a scrap bin behind my business that usually has some still useful exhaust tubing / mufflers that will come in handy.

    R31 GX with the interior half stripped and a big NOS shot?

    R31 Silhouette/Ti, $fewhundred, sell interior off to R31 dorks (+$fewhundred), cheapo bucket like Takai's $50 one in, Pintara death chair from the wreckers, ebay turbo setup, win?
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe, and from this side only! The flight of a half-man, half-bird. Dinosaurs nuzzling their young in pastures where strip-malls should be. Cookies on dowels. All those moments lost in time; gone like eggs off a hooker's stomach. Time to die.

    PLE020:
    find some old injectors laying around, or buy some for $5 each from a wrecker
    hobbs switch is about $25 off ebay
    knock up a tank if your handy, or buy a cheap surge tank off ebay.
    get an old VL fuel pump + pressure reg.
    run meth through it all
    wind boost and dizzy both right off the scale.
    win, or lose in a hail storm of gudgeon pins and pieces of block. shit you might even be able to do both

    $1300 is fucking tight though, only realisitc option is VN+NOS i think

    turbo conversions wont work IMO, by the time you get turbo/full exhaust/cooler/piping/oil lines/backyard spec tuning, on top of the car itself... price will be well over 1300, unless your very lucky/patient

    also some of us will have parts 'just laying around' that may be a big head start which others wont have, might want to adress that if this is to be a serious competition

    Needing rego puts me out, too much effort and money on something that wouldn't be legal to drive on the road.

    "free" stuff needs to be considered carefully, having access to discarded exhaust bits is obviously going to save a large wack of money over someone who has to buy the bits. Same for getting a free or really cheap car that other people won't have access to. It's basically the same problem with all low budget challenges, how do you police what the cost should be on second hand stuff.

    Yeah fuck rego. Last thing I need is more rego costs and yet another car. Call it registrable and I'm still in.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    most will play fair those who dont will get pf lynch mobbed, people on this forum will know what is reasonable purchase price. I guess the idea is to create something that is repeatable within the budget.

    Another random option, VN-VS commo, mount turbo where the cat is now, make a dodgy inlet manifold top to mount holley and run blow through on E85 so the NA ignition timing is still OK. Would save lots of dollars on turbo manifolds and efi fiddling.

    That kind of is what makes it a challenge.

    Free shit should have a token market value attached maybe.

    ^ pay me $100 and i'll run the 400m for you

    hoonboy, what your suggesting, but just go meth injection, alot less fucking around, leave all the standard efi gear and do what i said in my last post. meth/hobb switch etc.

    rather than setting a goal of 13's, why not just see who can go the fastest for $XXXX. maybe raise it up to $3000, would reaaalllyyy open up the options then, turbo conversions would become more reasonable, but its still a small enough amount of money for lots of people to get involved

    pretty much a case of "right place at right time". i actually got a cain 4bbl with reco 465 holley for $150! cast iron (converted 2bbl) manifolds go on ebay regularly for $50ish. or maybe run a 500holley with adapter on stock manifold?

    cm isnt a bad base, they weigh 100kg more than pre CL vals though due to side intrusion bars in the doors and a few other things, but have cold air inake standard, better brakes/suspension and the elb distributor (makes efi conversions easier)

    There is no way I can get the ute registered and running a 13 for 1300. Unreg, I could do it but I wouldn't be able to stop.

    Is it possible to reclaim some of the purchase price of vehicle if you sell stuff off it, eg buy $700 car sell $400 worth of bits off it, so $1000 left for mods??

    even so, if you have to reg the car to be in the competition, people with dirty old shitty cars like me n dave, you may as well make it a 10year competition. if i had to go full reg on my vals it would mean a full rebuild. historic rego on the other hand, is easier and cheaper to get, and serves the purpose

    I have a 7MGTE that you should buy. Needs a turbo and afm but has a T3 flange adaptor so you could fit any number of turbos. Has ecu and wiring loom. PM if keen.

    It will be at a reduced price for you.
    There's also a fairly mint Corona MK2 sedan up here with 60k on the clock that you should buy. Wants about $1500.
