    Today is the beginning of the newest project to come out of the garages of Three's da Life: the Slingshot STR! We are going from the standard ecotec 2.4 motor with 5spd transmission to a AP1 Honda S2000 2.0 motor and 6speed transmission. No more turbo needed. This stock setup will begin life in the Slingshot at 235hp and be able to red line at 8600rpms! With help from Jamie Roy and his crew in Kentucky we will be using his personalized Haltech programmer and dash with no ECU from Polaris or Honda! After the guys at DDM finish the dyno base line we then will proceed to stage 2, which will be the goal of 350hp and 9000rpm red line all while staying NA and running a wild custom built side exhaust built and designed by Three's da Life! Stay tuned on the forum for this first of its kind build that starts TODAY!

    motor at home.jpg 13909393_10209274610798674_8521068986059471164_o.jpg We got the motor and trans from a early Honda S2000 on Saturday, and I purchased a ITB kit from a young lady down in South Florida for the induction system. Had a great meeting with @jamieroy and his crew while they were down in Florida doing the SS Takeover in Orlando and they are starting on their part of the project. After the Thanks Giving holiday weekend, We will begin the teardown on my Sling and the mockup of the motor. Our preliminary measurements seem to show that the honda motor and transmission are only 1/2" wider and 1/2" longer than the ecotec motor, if that stays true, I would think it might come close to a drop in.... but you never know.?

    Some folks are questioning why I would go with the Honda motor instead of the V8 swap or just stay with my turbo set-up, this is the video I found that explians it best, I don't understand a word the guy is saying in the video, but if you watch it, you'll see the beauty in having a machine that can perform the feats of speed and agility that this lil monster can. True... the vehicle is lighter weight than our slings, but this thing is running a "stock" s2000 motor and trans, that is 235hp. After we finish with this build, we will be in the range of 300whp and with just one 345 rear tire, 300whp is all you need to scare the bejeusus out of yourself and have FUN all at one time!

I'll be going from the Turbo'ed 2.4 ecotec at 265whp @ 5700rpm to a 2.0 Honda VETC motor that will hopefully be 275 to 300whp @ 9000rpm and run a custom built stainless sidepipe exhaustthat looks like it belongs on the SS, not just some muffler pip[es hanging off of the side of it!

    By the way...... I don't know if you guys and gals have been to @Noel Hughes lately, but this new hood hinge setup that he has is sweet! We put it on the Sling last weekend while atthe toy ride and the difference it makes in the way the hood opens and closes and the extra room you get from having it on is fantastic! If you are somebody who likes to work on your motor or if you just want a way to gain more access to yourengine compartment, you need t ocheck that out.

    And BTW, STR is for "Street / Track / Race" and it will be more than a decal package ie Polaris!

    ETA2 Jenvey ITB electronic throttle.jpg Me and Jamie Roy have been trying to determine how much work would be involved and working outthe ITB's and having no DBW throttle like the stock Polaris ecu does, then I found this on line and it is designed to work with the Haltech Programmer, so hopefully this will work out....
