Time to start gathering parts 🙂 After a lot of thought, I’ve decided to start with the Porsche G86.20 gearbox. This is a 6 speed unit, used in the Boxster S and Cayman. The gearset is the same as the G96, which is used in the current generation non-turbo 911 cars. Should be ok for my purposes – at least to start.
As for the engine… well, it’s engineS really. I think the Ford Cylone series V6 would make an excellent engine. I learned to like this engine because we have a 2014 Mustang with this engine. It’s all aluminum, narrow V angle, 4 valve per cylinder, 7k redline and makes 305HP. I do think I need to buy a Coyote in order to make sure it will fit. Which engine will end up in the car?
The engine and transaxle are NOT connected here – just put them together to get an idea of the package (and big size mismatch). This is going to require some interesting adapter tricks.
The weight shown is the engine, with coils, not throttle body, no starter.
