  Guess you'll have to sell it to me!  ;-)

  It'd be wonderful to put the A2 subframe into an A1 body but that would
require MAJOR modification!  All the mounting bosses and threaded holes
should be on the engine (plus a few) to accomodate the A1 style motor
mounts.  A little swapping from your/an A1 engine and it should drop
right in except for a  little fuel, intake and exhaust modification.  :)  You
want a much bigger exhaust anyway.  :)
