could a ford racing aluminator engine fit or be transplanted into the engine bay of a lotus? it sounds lika a good engine. redline is at 7000 rpm and can produce 700 HP while being reliable.

With enough money anything is possible.

At some point (usually a pretty high one :D) too much of a good thing just becomes too much to do anything with and turns out more of a headache and less enjoyable. I think this would be above that point. Here's an illustration to put it in perspective.

Keith a better picture to illustrate your point would've been TV's in the headrest thread.

Just because its possible (with loads of $$) doesnt mean it should be done.

maybe the chick in the picture can put that money into good use and get reduction surgery lol

No surgery necessary! Just use a pin!

was just trying to say, if you get crazy enough you can really get too much of a good thing.

yeah. sounds like it would kill handling. that hennesy transplant sounds ridiculous. that would be good on the strip, not a road course. it just sounded sick, a 700 hp engine that revs to 7000. and i was thinin in an elise. i put alot of time coming up with a crazy elise. i think i attached the doc.. it's in 2 documents
