Topic: Please convince me this is a bad idea.
So...I have this 1995 Volvo 960 wagon, with a perfectly functional B6304S straight-six and AW-30 transmission, and a surprisingly un-Dean of the College of History-like 3.73 or 4.10 rear ratio. I had had this idea before that I wanted to swap a 3800 from a Camero or a FIREBIRD and/or T-5 into it, then the Charnal House-affiliated 1UZ-swapped Lincoln LS drift car project got into my head, then I found a running '92 LS400 on Craigslist for $400 a few hours away. Spank told me at GingerMan that I should just cage it and race it as is...but part of me is also saying that I really can't run a bone-stock, college-professor grade black Volvo wagon in my first race as a team captain. Please help me find a sensical balance.
