Subject: possible engine swap topic??
Well, since everyone's been talking about gas prices in the past few
digests, I thought I'd share my latest engine swap *wish*. See, tired of the
high cost of gas, I traded the ol' SUV for a VW Jetta diesel. Now if only I
could get that engine in a rwd configuration for my Spit (yes, I hear you all
cringing as I type...), it would not only be a rocket (100hp) and stump puller
(177 ft lb torque!!), but would get over 40mpg (I've never gotten over 25 or
26 in that car). But I do wonder how many rear ends all that torque would
tear out of the car.....
But the rear end issue aside, how cool would *that* be??
Let the flames begin.... :-)
