The s54 path with cost significantly more but the possibilities are endless after that. I know I will have to change the transmission and rear end with an s54. So what are everyone's opinions? I have considered a built engine but I currently don't have a full race team that will rebuild the engine after every race and never will, nor do I want to hassle with boring and stroking and engine. I feel like my 2 paths are the most realistic but keep I'm mind this is a track dedicated car, although I do drive it on the streets occasionally
What about all the other stuff like traction control, idrive etc etc, would you need to give that up with a swap. Is that stuff important to you on the track and your occasional street driving? Have you looked into swaps options like 2jz or LSX?
