The reason for the 420 motor is the fact that the heads on it are shorter than those on the M117 560 motor.

I am not concerned with the horsepower gain... I am interested in the car going from 180 ftlbs of torque to 230 ftlbs of torque. May not seem like a whole lot, but its significant in a small car.

The rear end in the wagon is (I think) is 3.27. Combine that with the nice more torquier motor, it will be a nice combo.


I looked at the car earlier today, and I love how it looks stock. Maybe the flared fenders, but for now, I want to leave it stock.

I am thinking of putting fogs in the bumper though...
