    GPR-SHO Information? Help!

    Does anyone have more information on where to acquire the engine/supercharger and ancillaries? ball park cost on parts? I have tried searching but am not drawing up much.

    Thanks!

    It's best if you can find a complete sho for your project. Mainly so you're not hunting bits and pieces often left out with engine packages. Well, from my experience at least. Basically, use what you need and sell the rest. There are a few informative threads here describing full builds using the sho platform.

    Thanks for the input. So its actually better to buy a whole hull (wrecked or whatever) and use it as a donor basically?

    That is correct the best way to go. The guys that have the most problems finishng a conversion and getting them running are the ones that have everything and just move it over to the GPR.

    +1 on the sho running with no issues before the transplant. You will have enough to deal with w/o having to deal with engine/wiring/sensor/overheating/compatibility/etc... problems.

    Another thing to note is it's nice to see the potential motor for your conversion run and perform if possible. A lot of these builds are done on somewhat of a budget, or ballpark budget at least, and doing a complete build to find out the motor is hurt would be a significant setback. Good luck with your build, and enjoy doing so. They're definitely fun to build and nice to put personal touches on them throughout the build process.

    Spoken by someone that know about custom touches.
