talk about the little engine that could... you planning on switching out to something else for more power or are you gaining a weight savings that you don't want to give up? 4bt perhaps?
I would love more power. But, I really have never wanted any more in the rocks. The manual puts it down so fast and hard I have never ran out. In the open desert it needs more to be competitive. I just don't think I can justify it. It is hard to give up the reliability of this motor. I mean I changed my oil to get it ready for koh! I think it's about as far as a rover can go. The recent tummy tuck took away the only big complaint I had. I think at this point any large changes might necessitate a custom chassis start from scratch. I'm not near wanting that though. I will put this up against just about anything in the rocks. At least any 4 seater.
Unfortunately, it's not that light anymore though.
