Re: V8 engine in type 44

My friend (Shayne pavlic) a lister (the one with the V8.S4/200
actually) really wants that.  He loves the V8 (as do i) and in a ur-q
would be a sweet combination.  How hard is it really???  Ben has been
working on it for years but it seems most of that time he was busy with
other things.  Is the hard part jsut he Engine Mount re-location???  Boy,
with the S8 motor imagine what it could do!!! :-)
