    sounds good to me

    i just love the idea of putting engines in cars that they were never made/designed for

    yes mental as in its a strange idea putting this engine in a golf

    and of course its not going to appeal to most people

    also how do you think you can tell that the engines is on its way out sounds and looks fine to me

    I also like it when people think hmmm iv got a car thats stick a different engine in it. Then just put somthing completly out off norm in it.

    I like the Bussa powered Smart cars you can even buy a Kit to do it.

    A friends got a Old Fiat with a Bussa engine in it, Best part is when you hear it coming and think thats one nice bike then a Bright yellow fiat goes by lol

    Joe1976;;also how do you think you can tell that the engines is on its way out sounds and looks fine to me

    Any car/engine driven to its limits can blow at any time,
    but that to me sounds like a rattling a tin of nails,

    Makes me cringe, like screetching nails over a blackboard

    but everyone to their own

    Bike engines sound different to car engines,and the trouble with youtube vids is that they are largely filmed on cheap shit camcorders so the sound is not very good ,yes i admit it does sound loud when he's filming under the bonnet but it sounds sweet when he booting it up and down that road.

    i think you have to take this car for what it is,clearly not your daily runaround, but as a weekend toy ...i'd have one in a heartbeat
