    Anyone fitted a 2.7T lump into anything else?

    As my car is nearing the end of its life, for me at least, I was thinking about possible uses for it.

    One bright idea was to put he engin into a caterham type shell. Anyone tried something like that? Is it doable?

    How does the 2.7T fare in the power to weight ratio?

    Wonder if I could buy a cheap ariel atom and stick the engine in it!
