Hilarious that the turbo was from my car... it was very mildly used. I think less than 1,000 miles on it.
As for my conversion, remember that mine was the live install price at the Nats and was a smoking deal (the only reason I did it). Plus, they sold every last piece that I had put on prior, which is never easy to do and that took a hunk out of the V8 cost. But, then I added the supercharger, and the hood.
And not to bash Mallett, but the only examples of V8 Sols out there that have sold have been mostly the early Malletts which were basically engines and some simple suspension tweaks. And, of course, none were coupes. As far as I know, there is mine with the blown LS3, there is the LS7 Werks did just prior to mine and I know Wade did a silver LS3 coupe. Am I missing any others? I know Mallett had some drawings, but no real cars. And Werks partnered with that company overseas on some new iteration.
Love the car, just ready for the next project. I have a hard time finding time to drive the Sol when I have kid pickup duty, etc. I have something pretty exciting in the works that will be just as fun, far more rare and seats four.
