    If you could swap any SHO engine into any car what engine and tranny would you put in a car? I was thinking of a Porsche 914 with the 3.2 mated to a MTX naturally aspirated

    Me, I would put the whole front wheel drivetrain from a 95 ATX SHO into the back of another 95 ATX SHO. 440 HP AWD AND not much would need to be done to sync the engines.

    Still like the way it looked in that Cobra replica done years ago. So many great engines with more horse power fit but the curve of the fender matching the curve of the intake was sweet.
    Also a sucker for ugly and thought about a Ford Tempo like the SHOpaz done by the Canadians.
    Watched a Fiesta running around Blackhawk this weekend, and a 914/6 and 914.
    Maybe a chopped top Volvo 245 wagon, like the old 262 Bertone. Ahh to have time.
