Omega V6 is popular and makes sense, depends what you want the car for..

If by GTA you mean Alfa Romeo, then this might be of interest: http://www.scimitarweb.co.uk/sgwrs/view ... =20&t=8388

I'd vote for the Omega engine for a (fast) road car..but I've been there :mrgreen:

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
