Tubeing the front end

Can anyone give me info on what type and width of pipe id need and all the details? I heard that it adds strength, reduces weight, and adds ease to working on the motor. Ik the last is true obviously. But what about the others?

That car is a drag car so that specific style tubular front end is very different from what you'll need. Your best bet is to find a shop to do the conversion for you, but it's not gonna be cheap. I'll admit I haven't heard of any guys doing a tubular front end on a road course car

Tubeing the front end

No real need to tune the whole front end.

What suspension work do you have done so far? Only need a tubular front end if it is a dedicated race car. Most usually only go as far as a tubular K member for corners.


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Ok. I already have the k-member, but was looking to lighten and stiffen the car up more and was told this is the best way to do that. I was also told that doing this would give more ease of access to the engine (which i can see is an obvious advantage), along with helping with heat soak, and endurance as i am wanting to participate in large track events.

Again thank you all for your help.
