I'm having trouble following all these engines - and now the car is black instead of yellow :roll:

LRP 335E Sprint Coupe

Okay, as my car related decisions are not that straightforward anymore, we now have a quite dramatic change of direction with this car! With numerous work projects to fund I decided to sell the Ecoboost package for a profit and take a full drive train consisting of a John Wade engine and T5 box out ...

Or go the Turbster ecoboost route? PS a hot Duratec will make 250 bhp NA, over 300 can be achieved. I had a look and everything points down to the chassis which is the biggest issue on the Coupe.. The Mustang version could work, but I still think the turbo would be an issue.. Duratec would be nice
