No, I'm building a very lightweight tube chassis car. Target 1500lbs wet with cage. It was always going to be n/a. 11 lbs savings up front is huge.

I don't want the 40+ lbs that a turbo would add. May do a K24 swap later...

You'll save a few more Oz with those carbon horns! Glad to see you got them Ok!

So why not a rotary swap? It would be a bunch lighter. The only downsides are crappy fuel efficiency and other practical concerns.
