hopefully i will be able to re-dyno it soon, Taking an informed guess, the last dyno at 6psi made 183whp,, i would bet i am around 230-240whp now. and 220ish torque at the ground,, If you work the standard 15% drivetrain loss, this would be around 270 crank hp.
When we start talking about these numbers, and what it would take to get a corvair motor there, And have it be relible for a long time (I.E. not a quater mile cruiser) this swap really starts to add up as a good solution
Got engine with KEP adapter and all the goodies for $450 on Craigslist... Enough talking !
Now I will try and post pics
That being said, i did have to get a custom input spline made (around 450$) In the long run i think this is money well spent because it lets me use off the shelf honda clutch parts. Honda clutch parts are very affordable, and very easy to find!
On a more generel note, i am starting to get a clicking under hard acceleration. I am assuming this is common of a failing universal joint?
I can't figure out how to post pics from iPhone. But I have a few on Instagram @corvairant if interested. By the way , what kind of quarter mile u think you can get out of it ? How's the cooling with radiator in back ? Doing similar myself.
More pics please
I would bet if i really cranked 1st gear out, i could be in the 5 second 0-60 time. Which is pretty fast for an old vair

Corvair bell housing (right) acura integra bell housing (left) when you split the case of an integra trans, you are left with this section, it is the exact same depth as the corvairs bell housing
The improvements made over the winter? New turbo, its is now a Mitsubishi Tdo4 15t. (great turbo) it flows about 30% more than the old unit, and spools up just as fast, It also keeps EGTs lower
i also cleaned up under the engine bay a lot, made new lines for the turbo, relocated the rad to the back seat, and got guages working inside the car (like tach, oil pres, and coolent temp) New clutch, finally fixed the trans leaks, and a lot of other housekeeping procedures
Car is coming along, and still driving! i hope to be at a corvair meet some time this summer
