Funny, I always thought they extended the wheelbase to fit the europa chassis. I would really appreciate those 2 extra inches.

Have to cut up the car anyway because I do not fit in. But that is approx. in the middle of the door, where all body lines are more or less straight, so rather easy to extend. At the engine bay it's a completely different story, with a lot of sloping & curved lines.

Looking at the options, I still favour the VR6. VQ35 and Busso do fit acceptably in N/A form, but when the turbos are added space becomes a lot more dire:

(VQ35DE with turbos roughly at the position of commercially available turbo turbo manifolds).

Ciao, Kai
