Cars now are way too expensive, full of shit nobody really needs. The whole auto market is going to be screwed because of it (sales last quarter are already way, way down). Who can afford to buy a...

Yeah, that's BS. They did it 20 years ago, it could be done now. Charge extra for the manual if you must, but "it costs too much" is total nonsense.

The original Vette had the best technology in the world at the time (fuel injection, composite chassis, I could go on). The new one just copies what the Germans and Italians were doing 30...

Right?

I've accumulated a non-insignificant amount of investments over the years. But even if I wanted to blow a wad on a brand new car.... nope.

That's because a $10k MM built M42 realistically puts down less WHP than a stock M20B25. :(

Yeah, I don't have an MM engine, but I built mine with their parts - it's been reliable, but the HP claims are BS.

24v exhaust is pretty raspy, yeah. I do think M20s sound better overall. Actually, I don't really like loud exhausts at all - induction noise is where it's at IMO. The S54 with the CSL airbox is...

N20 is crap though. Unless you want an engine that sounds like it's from a tractor that also eats timing chains. :p

Those are the same as posted above. Short block weights from the ETK. Not fully dressed / long block. And they're not even very consistent, if you start looking at them closely.

FWIW, the N52...

If you don't want an N52, then M54. The M42 is a boat anchor (sorry not sorry, but the power to weight ratio is just not there).

Looks aside, the Z4 is a much better car than the Z3 in basically every possible way, especially with the N52. You'd be going back 2.5 generations basically in a Z3.

Good idea, but you'll want to make it much shorter and I don't think it need to angle, or you'll never fit an airbox.

We already have some runners. The N52 head has part of what was traditionally...
