Going to be driven like 90% daily driver. It will be a bit heavy(it will vary depending on what body i put on it but around 3500 total sounds about right. But it is out of safety and convince to unbolt/slide out everything above the steering wheel and put it in the back. My goal is full hard top to open top in under 10 minutes with nothing more then a drill.
The dimensions are not a concern as I am building the body/engine bay from the ground up. The tilt forward hood has a bar in the back that unbolts in case I want to slide out the flat hdpe section and put in a high rise, louvered, or other type.
The only issue I really see is with cooling (bigger electric fans/hi volume low idle water pump should fix it I think). Everything else stays the same as with the v6 plan.
