Sorry about the X-post;

Hi,

New here...
So, I am rebuilding a 24 Valve motor, which I will be sticking into a Spider and I am looking for the donor-car.

I don't care about the engine or the tranny or the rear-drive however, I would prefer a nice condition car. I will consider anything, for the right price, but this MUST be a series 4 car ('91-'94) Automatic or Manual (pref. good condition otherwise....)

What's out there?

hmmmmm

sounds like a yummy conversion, keep us updated with pics as you progress.

One quick question; why put the more complex 24v version in, when the 12v sounds better & is less liable to require an expensive rebuild ? Just a thought really.

Anyway good luck, it's something I've always wanted to do.

I take it you've seen these:

V6 Spiders

12V vs 24V

Hi, Well yes. I have seen the site that you linked here, thanks - love the sound bite...

I have always wanted to do this and seeing this 12V site (and hering the sounds) REALLY inspired me..... Then I found Roman Racing.com's car... I had the good fortune of racing it on a slalom course up in Canada and MAN! What a car!!! (It's a 24 Valve) and it sings! (No cats....) Straight pipe (with some glass-pack) and nice headers: NOTHING sounds like it and few things go like it.

So the 24Valve was sort of a natural choice.

Any suggestions on the donor car? I'll keep you guys updated.
