This is how to do it - Astra GSi twin engine 4x4













Conversion 99% finished, the front engine drives the front wheels, the rear one in the boot drives the back ones, hence 4 wheel drive!
This has also been done on a Nova, which did the 1/4 mile in just under 3 seconds at Santa Pod last year!!! eek

Both engines are the same 2.0 8v ones. Easier to run in sync with each other, I can imagine how much of a nightmare it was get the throttle cable opening the same time, and wheels spinning in sync.

Fuel tank is between seats and engine, underneath the car (of course).

Two dump valves going off at the same time = awesome. eek

Nice smile

Different to see someone using the older 8v motors rather than a pair of valve turbo lumps smile

The Nova is called the 'Boost Beast', and was made by Regal (Vauxhall tuners).

Here's a link to the Boost Beast site (nothing in there anyway):
