    What is best Diablo roadster kit out there?

    Hi, I am new to this site and I want to build a Diablo Roadster. I have two Fieros that I can use as a donor cars. I have heard of D&R and IFG kits. What is the best kit out there? If you guys car break it down as far as quality,price and the difficulty of assembly I would greatly appreciated.Also I want to stretch the car first so I can get the motor in and sort out all the bugs( I am going with 3.8 turbo setup similar to the Buick Grandnational making about 400HP/500lbs TQ) I can use all the room I can get for the plumbing. Does all the Diablo kit require a 11 inch stretch? the D&R video says 10 & 25/32 inches. How crucial is the 11 inches? T.I.A

    Prasad ;D

    The D&R kit is way about the IFG kit in that it provides inner panels for all the decks, interior panels to completely do the interior( no fabricating your own), bmw and mercedes latches and hinges( no homemade looking stuff) and not to mention that the D&R kit looks much more like the real car than the IFG car does.

    I flew out and spent a day with Rick at D&R and got the big tour. I'm all set to buy a roadster myself. My donor body is all cut up and I'm buying engine and tran as we speak. I too had the same question. I Wrote to everone at Dale Vanblokerds site and Dale himself. ( they're doing and advocating the IFG kit). My questions were is IFG any good and I hear they are VERY SLOW on fulfilling promises and deliveries. No one, not even Dale returned any e-mail when those questions were asked. Rick has been very available, so far and has answered every question so far and I haven't given him penny one yet. Their body seems straight and solid, and in the gel coat the lines seem staight. Everbody says IFG gives you "everything" , well D&R says the only things you don't get are the Air conditioner vents for the inside and the wheels and tires assuming you've harvested everthing you need to from the donor Fiero. Rick said save the elctric window set up and the electric miror components, Daaa mine had manual windows and mirrors so it was back to fiero.net for those but all in all I'm voting with a credit card and going with D&R
