Default OFNA Cd3 question.

i was wondering if a rear exhaust motor will fit with the header. i see that the motor will fit, but the space looks cramped. the cd3 is only 160 bucks, and im looking to get into on-road. from what i hear it's tough, and will handle some abuse on the drive train. i will probabaly get used to it with the force .12, but the jlr reddot looks nice.

any small block with rear exhaust will clear the car control arms and other parts, it is adding a .21 or larger engine where the problem comes in at so the JLR would be just a direct bolt in and go deal. And yes the CD3 drivetrain is excellent IMO as I have beat the crap outta one of my CD3's using a more powerful .21 and NOTHING has broken at all. Good luck with the car that costs $160 and is very well built IMO for the money and with the right engine in it, it will run circles around 4-tec's.

Thanks and I too am an OFNA fan. Their cars are built pretty darn good and for the price, you just can't beat it. They come with beefed up steel diffs and handle pretty good once set up properly. You'll like it and like I said, with a small block in the car, you can run the rear exhaust without cutting or modding anything to get it to fit. Good luck with it.
