Shlammed question for you. When you put the motor in did you put it n from the top or the bottom? Reason I ask is because I am painting my bay this friday and I'm scared to death of scratching the paint when I the motor drop in. How did you do yours? I'll be dropping an lsv into my EG hatch.

Going to work on that a little, but for now its good.

You can get most of the items out of ebay for nickles..how's the fuel consumption?
