You've never driven a 911, have you? the heavier subie engine would make the older 911 even more scarily tail happy than it was.

The EU market versions of that 1.9L TDI engine make up to 150 bhp, but they require the low-sulfur diesel that still isn't available here commonly.



Of course, if you really want to get nuts, there's always the 5.0L V10 TDI from the Touareg that puts out 333 bhp and 555 lb-ft. of torque...a decendent of this engine was in the winning Audi LMP car at LeMans this year.

With Jammer bars, seat and a maltese cross sissy bar.

I had a hot-rod 1976 Pinto Pony MPG with a 200 hp 2.3 litre motor and the auto trans. Use to kick ass on Porche 912's and 924's. Would really ***** them off.



The crank has 5 main bearings, and weighs about 75 lbs. That's why they're so strong, and can be turbocharged, or supercharged with little or no modificatons to the lower end, except for moly bolts.



Mine had a 390 holly 4bbl, Isky cam, and headers. It flew.

I think a crescent moon emblem is more appropriate for his ilk.

Don't forget the tomahawk.



A four wheeled 500 lb-ft motorcycle. Or something.



If the description of a bike has to include the words 'or something,' I'm game

I've seen a 5 liter 12 Ferrarri engine in a bike in San Diego. The car was a totaled 512 I think. The bike was about 8 feet long and very interesting to look at, but I'd rather ride a bike with a 2 liter 12, it'd be at least a couple feet shorter. (Of course Triumph is making a 2.3 liter three cyclinder that looks like a car engine...)

My personal fav Ferrari is the Barchetta. But anyone taking such a motor out of one should be spoken to harshly!



It would be an original sin in my book....

If a Vanagon had too much power, wouldn't be able to keep your spliffs lit.
