much easier and probably cheaper to bolt a charger up to it. :)


Nothing like driving a boosted engine.  Those who never have, don't understand!!! :motonoises:

AMEN AND AMEN!   :beerchug:

They simply cannot have the frame of reference TO understand the feeling of all that torque.  Even terrifically hot NA engines don't feel like THAT.  :-\

On another note, lately I've been thinking about throwing my ZGT1000 engine into one of my jet skis fer grins.

The problem is our perception of reality versus the need to prove that perception unrealistic. Letting the wrong one win may be imposing a false reality upon the truth.  If only I was better at discerning which is which without throwing money and time at the equation.  :-[
