    So to summarize.

    They've taken a Rover Metro GTi with a K Series Engine.

    Binned the standard engine (for what ever reason)

    and fitted a professionally tuned, urm, K Series Engine with VVC.

    Not the most difficult engine "swap"

    Plus as already stated, Ariel Atoms have the Civic Type R engine.

    It'd go like stink tho
