I think that doing this to an XP would be a very expensive exercise!

These cars are no where near built for anything like this. You would need to custom make all the suspension and steering setups, anti-roll bars, chassis strength, maybe a bit bigger track width, rear diff setup and so on to have a decent car to drift with. Also theres all the fun of fitting a computer controlled engine with wiring and fault codes, etc. It'd be a lot of hard work and cash.

But if you think you have the money, time and skill involved than go for it. It'd be something different and it'd be great to see an XP drifting around.

ok, these measurements are all give or take 10mm

Harmonic Balancer to Flywheel 795mm
Sump width 220mm
Head width 155mm
Exhaust manifold to Intel manifold 700mm (it'll be wider with a turbo)
Sump to tappet cover 680mm

Good luck, and keep us updated on the project!
I've still got front suspension, and various other things if you need it


Cheers,
MaTTe
