Plus 4 seats and really nice looking etc
True enough, but I still don't like the idea of someone taking apart the M// engine and replacing parts. Yes, we get more power, but I bet it will become a 8mpg car and wind up blowing up or having issues. Its no longer an M// engine, its just a derivative of an M// engine. The smoothness and efficiency may go out the window with this mod as well. Just don't think I am crazy about this.........or maybe I am giving the guys at M// too much credit and Dinan not enough.....
