    Yeah they are a bit strange looking, but kinda cool in a weird way. I see a lot of 'em here in Indy.

    2005 crossfire

    Ahh Id love to find out more on this car. Im a former LS1 guy, and probably will wind up having another LS powered vehicle eventually.
    I came across this thread while aimlessly googling "LS1 crossfire"
    Its something Ive had in mind for sometime.
    And me being a former owner of a LS1 powered RX7, I could only imagine how much fun a LS1 powered crossfire could be...
    I wonder if Brian Hinson would be interested in taking on this venture.. the vehicles are dropping in price significantly, and are pricey to maintain...
    I am not complaining, just stating a fact.

    ok, here's some info:

    i found the black crossfire
    found him again at the observatory!
    got to check it out close and personal.
    1st of all, no sound clips and no video. he asked that I not do it and I gotta respect those wishes. He says he's working on it for a cross country run.
    anyway, i could have taped everything with the phone but respect is respect!

    side note, he says he knows other guys that have done a ls6 swap and a jag supercharged 4.0 [?] swap. fast company!

    6.1L hemi out of a magnum
    comp cam [very quite idle, very little if any lope]
    90mm t body
    auto trans
    18" front, 20's rear
    3.07 rear

    now for the good stuff. i was asked if i was stalking him [lol].
    we chatted a bit and he offered to take me for a spin.

    ok, i know i don't have many mods listed. but after owning my baby since 99, i've added enough toys to pull about 450. [last dyno was years ago]

    this car is insane.
    he says from a standing start, a moped could take him. just smokes the tires.
    lots of problems with this much power [he says after the cam, t body and tuning it pulls about 475] i think he was mis-informing me.
    this thing was like a rocket. the roads in the area are quite twisty but in the areas where he could, i got to experience the feeling that i was trying for in my t/a. very good cornering and very smooth

    hoping to meet up again and maybe get some photos.

    this car pulls extremely hard and sudden. [i was in a friends z06 and it didn't compare to the feeling i got while watching the speedo climb]

    after about an hour of fun i wanted to see how i'd do against him from a 40 mph rolling start.

    well....

    did i say rocket? he left me in a fog of tire smoke and was gone.
    it seems the faster i went the further away he got.


    how much for this much fun?

    he says the work was done over about a 6 month time frame and he did most of the install himself.

    says he has less than 20k into the swap.

    2005 crossfire

    the LS1 FD was fast.
    the engine was out of a 2001 C5, i bought the entire drive tran out of a wrecked car, through a company in PA i think.
    I put the engine in to a 94 rx7, pulled the power steering & a/c
    had some basic bolt ons..
    I never got it on the track, I wound up selling the car about 3 months after I got it running, and wasnt even 100% complete when I sold.. Still regret selling it, but due to being in college at the time, having a 110 pound dog, and not being able to justify having 2 vehicles while being in college, I had to make that sacrifice.
    I had a friend who said his SS was running 12's w drag radials, spray and a few bolt ons raced and it wasnt close
    and speaking of tires, i was running mismatched tires on the car, one was filled with fix a flat... not my brightest of moves looking back on it.lol
    If I had to guess, Id say it was a low 12 second car with the few things i had done to it. I sold the car 6 or 7 years ago.
    id love to have one a again.. Thats why I think this LS powered crossfire is a great idea!!

    Or maybe the 6.1.. you can keep the jag 4.0 swap lol
