PostSubject: What do you think of a 12.00 Second 1.4 Solstice on Street Tires   Fri Jun 17, 2011 10:42 pm

Hahn RaceCraft’s Solstice takes Ecotec engine performance to the next level, showcasing this capable engine series in a serious performance roadster.

This car was the first Solstice to run the ¼ mile in the 14, 13, and 12 second zones on its stock 2.4 liter Ecotec. It’s romancing the 11 second zone as we speak, with a best ET to date of 12.00 seconds at 117 MPH on street tires!

Special thanks to General Motors and Rick Bottom Custom Motorsports!


The car is built from the ground up to run as well as it looks. The two-tone paint, expertly applied by Rick Bottom Custom Motorsports, accentuates the lowered stance. Huge brake upgrades at all four corners make sure the whoa is as ample as the go. The 19 x 8 inch wheels and the Dunlop SP9000 street radials keep things on track during spirited cornering, perfectly augmenting the upgraded coil-over shocks. The slightly narrowed front track makes for a subtly aggressive staggered stance.


The spent unleaded fuel makes its way through a high-flow catalytic converter on its way to a 2.5” stainless steel exhaust system. Power flow is handled by a heavy-duty clutch.


The centerpiece of this mouse that roars is its engine compartment. As an ongoing test bed for Bill Hahn’s considerable Ecotec turbocharging prowess, the car has been fed a steady diet of boosted steroids. Development of higher-powered iterations of the Hahn Solstice turbosystem occurs here, and as much as 380 wheel horsepower has been achieved on the stock VVT 2.4L engine!


Features:

Hahn RaceCraft Stage IV TurboSystem

Hahn RaceCraft MaxFlow Catalytic Converter

Corsa stainless steel exhaust system

Hahn RaceCraft heavy duty clutch

Konig Privat alloy wheels

Dunlop SP9000 tires

SSBC big brake kit

Eclipse audio system

Eibach Coilover System

please turbo it instead of putting some huge v8 thats going to kill the handling b/c of all the extra weight in that little car!

Gixxer. An aluminum v8, does not way more than a 4 banger with a turbo, and intercooler and headers.
The car will not loose handleing because its suspension is being built to hold up a v8 for autocross/drift track use.

i'd say less expensive to go turbo than full swap... but whatever you choose, i know it's not going to be half assed...

See, I know I can make just as much power via turbo.... but a turbo just wont sound as awesome as a v8 when reving it at a show.
I want to get people's attention.. and I think an Ls1 would do it with a custom valve/injector cover.

now i will agree with that an ls1 can sound extremely healthy... like i said before nothing you do is going to be half asses, so whatever you do decide i can't wait to see it finished... i know you have other big plans right now though... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
