Why would you do this to poor SOHC?
Just to innovate and stand out?

I still think TT's are the way to go, but with 11 to 1 compression and assuming he changed the flow of the heads, i would imagine it would indeed throw down with a N/A. The original heads were somthing like 8:1 compression. Even if the car does produce the 243HP it would put it at the weight to Hp of a vr 4 without the four wheel drive, suffering a huge traction issue. This is forgeting the price tag of that motor...(ouch) but i do wonder what is the potential of the minivan motor :wink: what people do when they have too much money
