A Friend With To Much Money


Recommended Posts

ok ive been asked by my friend what type of mini van should he get. he wants to make a sleeper out of it and his goal is high 13's or low 14's and im not sure exactly how much he has to spend but money isnt really a problem for him he just wants something that he can drive his kids in but at the same time not feel like a soccer mom. my guess was everything would have to be pretty much custom made but i was wondering if anyone had some ideas.

 

maybe the nissan quest its the same engine as a 350Z (vq35de)

I am sad to say that we bought a 2008 Dodge Caravan with the 4.0L and 6 speed over the summer. I say sad because it is a minivan HOWEVER this thing scoots and is very family oriented. I am very impressed with the 4.0L from Dodge.

 

As for mods, if money is no limit, the sky is the limit. Bang for the buck...a universal 75HP shot of nitrous would make quick work of a low 14 second 4.0L Dodge Caravan with some general weight reduction. I would estimate the motor would make between 325 and 350 HP in that set up.

Any 2000+ Pontiac Montana or Chevy Venture (or olds silhoutte) with the 3.4L V6 in it. Do a 3800 swap into it. Its been done, 13's is attainable. Here is a link to the build. Have him get in contact with the guy, who will help with it.

Good luck! Should be cool!

 

Oh, and there is a late 80's caravan video out there where the guy ran a 12.7 with a turbo 4cylinder swap in it...But thats just way to old. At least a Pontiac Montana looks somewhat modern. It has all the foundation ground work for a turbo.

1993-94 trans sport (same thing as the montana) comes with a 3.8 non supercharged they sell kits to swap a supercharger on for $200 with out the blower and then $200-$300 for the blower. then after that cam heads and pulley and that will be one sick mini van

Astro van AWD. Either put a turbo on the V6 or put a 6.0L in it. With stock wheels and good tires it should look very stock and still run hard.

 

Oh why should they take your advice, it's not like you have ever done anything like this ... have you ever even rode in a Astro Van ... geez :)
