Might be similar horsepower, but the torque numbers are way better.  and I get 20mpg flogging (read: pinned all the time) the shit out of it, and 24mpg doing the speed limit, and 26mpg cruising at 100mph.

...And I get 25MPG floggin mine.  31MPG at 70MPH highway all day long.  However, my VG is port matched/smoothed, punched .040 over, Cerma Chromed EE headers with 2.5 inch all the way through the CAT and muffler. 

I love the meaty sound when accelerating but it does need a small resonator after the CAT to reduce the crackly note when I lift off hard accel.

Stupid idea....

....but on the bright side of things, that means more SE crossmember will be available for the 84 ca20e cars...

I have plenty.

This thread is full of win lol. Anyway you can get parts for the vg from your local parts store I say if your gonna swap the vg go v8 makes more sense to me than downgrading to a 4 cyl.

I can get some parts from my local parts store... Pretty much everything but the starter and alternator (though the one off a KA can be made to work).
