    Seriously no one wants to brag or share their engine of choice in their car?? I just tossed 3 out there to see if anyone tried them or used them.

    Create engines aren't popular as they used to be now especially with the aftermarket scene out you can take the donor car's original engine and put a turbo on it and probably would smoke a V8 swapped Fiero very easily for thousands less.

    Back in the day it was very common to spend an additional 5-10k on a V8 create motor in a replica build, I couldn't hear one without the other especially with the exotic illuisions Lamborghini Countach Turnkey always featuring a V8 Archie 350 kit selling for beyond 65k or more. Now aday's you can build a nice 3800 or 3.4 for far less and be much faster.

    If I was going to buy a create engine id go with an LS3 or a 2JZ Turbo straight from Suprastore. Otherwise id be in search on Craigslist for a BMW V12 or a 3800 Supercharged.

    Any of these would make me grin, but if $$ were not a problem, the last one would be my first choice!
