      here's what it read on the auction:
      Quote, originally posted by eBay »
      From the auction: You are bidding on one of the worlds most custom jeeps ever built. This is an all aluminum body CJ-7 with a 500 hp Viper V-10 crate motor, 1-ton 5-speed NV-4500 trans, Dyna trac Dana 60 reverse pinion one ton axels with Detroit soft lockers front and rear with 411 gears. A custom 2x 4 tube steel frame buy advanced frame works of California. Atlas twin stick transfer case 4.3 to 1 ratio, Wilwood front and rear disk brakes for stopping when your crusing at 140 mph. Custom Mickey Thompson Beed-lock wheels with 33 nitto grappler tires. Jeep has a custom 25 Gallon gas tank with skid plate and in the tank electric fuel pump. Jeep has heavy duty power steering and power brakes. Dash is custom with all autometer guages with anodized aluminum bezels. All frame and cage is powder coated, Body has a $12,000.00 custom paint job. Custom headers and Ron Davis 4 -core radiator to keep it running cool even in Arizona. Jeep has reverse shackels front and duel rancho 8000 gas shocks front and rear. Full 6-point cage with Beard suspension seats and shoulder belts. I am a metal fabricator by trade with over 29 years and a certified welder, My buddy larry who helped me build it is a nuclear certified welder that worked for Hughes Aircraft and has over 30 years fabrication experience. It took us 1 year to build this Jeep and I spent just over $100,000.00 in parts alone. This Jeep was featured on the cover of JP magazine June 2004 issue with a 4 page article inside.

      Really bad idea. First of all the VR6 isn't mean for a RWD platform. You'd have to find a transmission that would work.

      Just to be clear, there are a few RWD VR6 applications.

      Pretty sure that the Touareg, Cayenne, and older MB Vaneos use a longitudinal FR type layout (though the former are AWD) for the VR6.

      My mistake, not the MB Vaneo... the MB V-Class and the Vito.
      MB = Mercedes Benz.
      Not 100% sure, but believe that these are FR layout for the VR6.

      The page I read off said it was an LS7 with a dry sump. Also, the valve covers say "LS7" so I don't see how anyone without supreme inside knowledge is supposed to know otherwise. There's no need to go and try and "show someone up" just to prove something when there is no need.

      I know for a fact that he had to run a wet sump because of fitment issues. but you are right, it is a true LS7, I just found my issue of Sport Compact Car that has this car in it.

      If you started with the 2.8L either 12V or 24V, you're starting with an inherently inferior engine that you'd have to modify the sh*t out of to match the S2000's power levels.


      This, people, is the very fuel that ignites that Great American Passion of Intuition, Ingenuity and Back-Yard Engineering supremacy, that same thinking that says "that'll never work? Hah! I can make that work! lemme show you how, son". That great spirit that drove pioneers to build flying machines, trans-oceanic ships, space shuttles, race cars, positively freaky carnival rides, AND the internet. That essence of "if it don't fit, try harder dammit!" and the "never-say-never" attitude of a true champion.
      Oh, firetruck! I've got that all backasswards now!
      For What It's Worth: a stock N/A VR6 may be a turd if you're not concerned about having torque at a lowly 2000 rpm. Add a medium-sized snail, some injectors and software, and run 10-12psi on a bone-stock motor. Or, add a head spacer and up the boost into the 20's. 400whp on a stock bottom end. Proven capability but oh no, it's got a VW badge on it, so therefore it's no good. If you're doing a complete drivetrain swap... why keep the motor stock? Makes no sense your argument does.

      :

      While I do agree that it would be cool to see (I already said that), swapping a VR6 into an S2000 is an exercise in futility. If you're going to swap a VR6 into an S2000, you'd either have to boost it or you'd have a slower car. A diesel could get you more torque at 2000 RPMs but putting around at 2000 RPMs isn't the point of an S2000.
      If the plan is just to boost a swapped VR6, you're must better off just boosting the F20C/F22C and you can have 275 ft-lbs and 400 whp. I don't think you'll ever see a VR6 in an S2000 but I don't mind being proven wrong.
      At least a Vr6 in a Fiero makes sense, as the engines that came in a Fiero were turds anyways. You'd be increasing power (and reliability) there, and that makes sense.
      But, can we drop the topic?

      Ford made a one-off Mustang V10 which was closer to a 4.6 32v with two extra cylinders grafted on, IIRC.
