A much more affordable (and COMPACT) way to achieve what is usually done with a boosted P-car powerplant! [twothumb]

I'm currently in the progress of fitting an EJ22T in mine but with an adapter plate (which is the most common way to do it) to mate to the stock vw transmission. It is able to hold a stock engine as long as you don't trash it too much. This swap is as old as the ej engine itself and the Aussie are the pioneers of the swap. The reverse pinion and ring gear that makes it possible to use the Subaru transmission (still with a lot of hacking to it, to make it more compact) is made in Australia and they are the only one currently offering it.

That Lady is dumber than a Bag of wet mice. That guy should know better handing the reigns of that car to an unsuspecting newbie. Seems like a good way to Kevin Hart the Bug*

She isnt really a "newbie" per se'.....I mean, she not only drove and competed in the King of the Hammers, but she was the first female to complete it, and KOH isnt really an easy race.

But a massive difference in slow finesse climbing vs. fast, flat carving skills. Her skill now is YT content. I'd do it if I had something to do it on.

Very true, but she wasnt doing fast, flat carving....at least in this episode. All I'm saying is, that she prob has more skill than the average female.

Did any of your guys pick up on how quickly she mastered that Dogbox? By the end of her drive she was shifting that box smoother than the guy who built the car. Folks, shifting Dogbaox is a whole new level of skill and most take a lot more time to adapt than that gal did.
