VEMS will be the next thing on order. Unless a turbo shows up somewhere that I like.

There will be some Bucka involvement in this project.:wtf:

As the gatekeeper of 5 cylinder swapped 240s, I decide who is allowed to do them. You are not on the list.

As Long as I'm breathing I will do everything in my power to stop this project from ever getting off the ground.

See you in hell.

Homer, Do you have this idea down pretty well? How are you going to mount/fab everything. Curious if you have your own plans or if you're kind of going by what Buchka has done.

Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing this thing take off.
