redblock 6 speed manual?

Post by CIK7 »

I sold my red v70 5sp in February. Only driving my 03 accord ex v6 with the rare 6sp. Beginning to obsess about doing a 745 non-turbo project. Gotta find the engine and the car. I want to completely rebuild a redblock and pair it with a 6sp. Looking for 500hp. Does anyone know of any 6sp manual that is compatible or close enough to make compatible?
1998 V Base red, loaded, 346k (244k), 5sp, sold
2003 Accord V6 silver, 197K, 6sp, current
1998 S GT white, 175K, 5sp, The Cloud, sold
1996 964 silver, 145807, The Cloud, crushed
1998 XC black, 151183, The Storm, crush pending
1998 XC white, junk, crushed
2001 V70 Ba white, 168k, traded for Storm
09 Chev Imp grey, 196K, sold for first Volvo

I THINK that I read about a common 6 speed swap into a 2/7/9 series Volvo on that Australian forum. Something.oz. Can't recall...

Good luck though!

Is 500 HP even possible with 4 cylinder Red Block without forced induction or NOS? Maybe at 8000 RPM and Cubic $$$.

Right. I think a full blast 2-liter screaming race engine would have a hard time doing that at high rpm, and probably not a big bearing red block.
