19 Replies and 7179 Views Vorshlag Budget TT Build: Project DANGER ZONE  7179  19 Started by  Fair Project Introduction, Dec 18th, 2014: Welcome to Vorshlag's latest crazy project build thread. Many of you know how we have documented our various project builds on the forums over the past 12 years and this will be another fun one. I will be cross-posting this on a number of forums, shown in the list below. Pick your favorite, subscribe, and feel free to join in the conversation! If you've never seen my build threads before, there are links buried throughout (usually in bold) as well as LOTS of...

2 Replies and 275 Views Vorshlag Build Thread - 69 Camaro Pro Touring/Track Car  275  2 Started by  Fair Project Introduction August 6th, 2015: This one is a bit unusual for Vorshlag - a Pro Touring build. Yes, this is the first classic Detroit iron we've done up to this level. No, we're not selling out and trying to cash in on a 'new trend' - I grew up building and driving 60s-70s F-bodies, Mustangs and Mopars. They were great looking cars with good drivetrains but had pretty terrible brakes, suspensions and chassis. I have watched the Pro Touring trend evolve from day 1 (BigRedCamaro) and have be...

14 Replies and 3738 Views Vorshlag Scion FR-S LSx Alpha Project  3738  14 Started by  Fair Project Introduction - April 12th, 2014: This is the first of many posts where we will document our first GM LSx based V8 swap into an 'FT86' chassis, or just an '86'. That's the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ rear wheel drive sports coupe, for those of you unfamiliar with the nickname. Also known as 'the twins', these two-door coupes are a co-creation from Toyota (ne Scion) and Subaru, and a revolutionary design for them both. These are two companies normally making plebeian FWD econoboxes (Toyota) ...

10 Replies and 2452 Views Vorshlag Build Thread - Mark C's 2002 C5 Corvette Track Rat  2452  10 Started by  Fair Project Introduction - April 10, 2014: This is a build thread for a customer's C5 Corvette, Mark Council. Normally I won't make a 'Vorshlag Build Thread' for every customer's car we work on, but this one is a bit special. Mark is testing out some new things we're either making, sourcing, or selling. On top of that he let me race his C5 at Optima already and I will likely take laps in testing in the future. This 2002 Z51 6-speed Corvette is being built as a 'track rat' that (for the moment) can s...

10 Replies and 5157 Views Vorshlag Miata LS1 Alpha Project  5157  10 Started by  Fair New Project Introduction : Many of you reading this already know about Vorshlag's history with installing American V8s into European sports coupes and roadsters, but that wasn't the first V8 swap that I contemplated. Back in 1998 I purchased a 1992 'NA' 1st generation Miata. I bought it wrecked, repaired all the bodywork, and had it painted with the intention of building a 302 Ford V8 powered 'monster' Miata. That was right around the time when the LS1 engine was just being introduced into the n...

At long last an S550 Performance Pack 6-speed GT finally arrived in Dallas. Not the one(s) we ordered, but a stocking order GT with similar performance equipment. This has power leather seats (not the leather Recarcos we ordered) with Sat Nav, 12 speaker stereo, the bigger 15' 6-piston brakes, the 19x9/19x9.5' wheels, the works. You have all seen the 'magazine' weights thrown around, and like usual, the numbers are bunk. I swear ...

10 Replies and 10049 Views Vorshlag E46 Alpha - BMW 330Ci LSx Build Thread  10049  10 Started by  Fair Introduction (May 2011): Many of you know of Vorshlag from our earliest Vorshlag branded project car, the E36 LS1 swap, aka: 'The Alpha car'. I purchased this 1993 BMW 318is chassis back in 2002 and it was developed into the first LS1 powered E36 on the planet. This project spawned a 'kit' of parts that we started selling in 2007, and we've been developing, improving, and selling parts for this popular V8 swap ever since. There have been several other companies that took this idea and tried to m...

She is only the 2nd woman in 83 years of PPIHC's running to win a class, and she did it on a shoestring budget. That was only one of many amazing driving feats she pulled off in 2011, which also included: a historic BMod open class win at the SCCA Solo National Championships (only the 3rd woman to ever win an open class), she was the R...

7 Replies and 9049 Views Vorshlag BRZ Project Build Thread  9049  7 Started by  Fair BRZ Project Introduction - August 28, 2012: We here at Vorshlag have had a cautiously optimistic view of the FT-86 Subaru/Toyota RWD joint venture starting 3 years ago when the car was first announced. As soon as the pre-production cars started circulating the USA (January-February 2012), we went to a local Subaru dealer and measured all sorts of things (which you can read about in my February 2012 post here).We noticed several things about the pre-production car pretty quickly, such as the man...

7 Replies and 8896 Views Vorshlag Annoucement Thread for all LS1 Swap Development  8896  7 Started by  Fair Vorshlag is your Home for LS1 Swaps Most people know Vorshlag for our automotive suspension solutions, but we've also been in the V8 swap market for over a decade. We put the first LS1 V8 into a BMW back in 2002. Doing work in our own and friends' home garages our first BMW E36 LS1 V8 swap was completed in 2005, even before Vorshlag was incorporated into a real business. By 2007 we had E36 LS1 production swap parts available and have been developing more BMW LS1 solutions ever since. We have ev...

The first pallet of 4150s shipped out of the Netherlands to the USA in late November and it has arrived in Dallas. The entire allotment was of BMW E36 and S197 Mustang 4150s, and all of it was purchased by Vorshlag. We are extreme...

A couple of old college racing buddies and I are going in together on a crap can endurance race car build. If you are living under a rock and don't know what that is, there are two competing Wheel-to-Wheel endurance road racing series (24 Hours of LeMons and ChumpCar) where racers have a '$500 budget', buy a piece of crap car, do some safety upgrades...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
Nov 11, 2009 Update: I've become a little tired of autocrossing in Street Touring (2005-2009), and we just sold the E36 LS1 powered 'XPrepared' autox/track car. So at the 2009 SCCA Solo Nationals I looked at hundreds of cars and dozens of classes to try to figure out what I want to build next. I decided on a D Street Prepared build but was unsure of the right BMW chassis to use. I looked initially for an E36 325is and 328is, then moved to the more powerful E46 330Coupe chassis. On Novembe...

In summary: AST Suspension (Holland) purchased Moton Suspension (Holland) this week. Moton USA headquarters will move into the same AST-USA facility located in Dallas, just 5 miles down the road from Vorshlag, on Monday. Things are happening fast, but the reality is a great shock brand and their long standing catalog of shock models has been saved from the chopping block by the folks that own AST. &9...

This 10 off sale also represents a 15-20 savings to the customer when comparing to upcoming 2011 prices, which are projected to rise slightly (due to factors such as poor Euro/Dollar exchange rates). The 10 off is reflected on the following AST models (10 off reflects the base price of the Shocks Only). There are no other models on sale at this time, and these...
