Watch out for John's car. Those canards will bite you in the ankle real good.

Thats just stage one on Johns bumper. Wait until the secondary canards and adjustable splitter are on. They will be calling him soon for a cameo on Mad Max 4. Its kind of got a Wyatt Earp thing going on.

That because you swapped in a BP4W?

I know what you meant, so fixed

My immediate thought was: There's no way in hell to mistake a BP4W IM from a 1.6 IM...and then I understood.

I don't understand the confusion here. The 1.6L intake plumbing fits. It is smoosh smooshed against the radiator hose pretty well though. I did cut an inch or two off the rad hose for a quicker turn. I removed the dashpot from the throttle body because it was vibrating against the hood.

Geez, who was the photographer for speedhunters? A little infatuated with the tilt-shift effect, is he not?

Aren't the crash bars still in the doors? And how does an absence of a rear window create more drag than having one. Especially with the side windows open.
