why would you want to swap to a weaker engine?? the quad HO is the best four banger next to the W41. stock like 180 hp. 2.4l is 150hp.

i would just keep the HO and add to it.


also... are you VenomX from other message boards?

well if you ever find yourself a 2.4L... keep me in mind if you're getting rid of your HO :thumbs:

also... that car looks very familar... almost identical to someone's
