Here is a S/C\'d V-8 That is Guaranteed to fit in the Focus!

In the glove box that is!



My mind is reeling with possible uses for this motor. It is a 1/4 scale, supercharged 427 V-8. It makes in excess of 4hp. Price tag is just shy of $5,000 with the optional supercharger.

$5,000? hell no. buy something with a lot more than 4hp for that money. hell, i can buy a lawnmower with 4hp for 1/10 of that. not that it would look that cool though

You need to redo your image so its not a 1.2MB BMP file. Dont mean to be an ass but I think Ron will love you for not chewing bandwidth with an image thats about 75x the file size it needs to be. So will anyone using a modem.

You are paying for the craftsmanship that goes into make an exact replica of a full size engine. Every part of it is hand made from scratch. If anyone on here thinks they can do it better, I'd love to see it.

not saying i can do it better, or that its anything but amazing craftsmanship...just think thats a lot of money to be throwing around for such a tiny thing.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">While I agree that it doesn't need to be 1.2mb, and the dial up (and most everyone) would appreciate it being a 60K jpeg or something, FJ doesn't get charged for the bandwith, because it isn't comming from FJ's servers.

That engine is NICE!
