That was originally an Autobiography on VWVortex...

Sick though, to be sure...

Amazing!  I would like to have a ride in it.

Next...a corvette engine in a bug!
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

It is MUCH more commonthat you might think, there are even a few down here with STI motors. Hell I bet there are at least 15 of them running around the front range waiting for an unsuspecting sucker in a Civic... LOL

No I meant Vanagons... from what I understand about it, the Subie motors are almost a direct fit which is why they are so popular as a swap for those.
