It is the most suh-weetest sounding motor I've ever heard.
KK will have one of it's own.
Anyone contemplating this swap.....
it is worth every penny, & busted knuckle it puts you through.

Re: OttawaG60's motor is OFF THE HOOK!!!!! (slingshotG60)

Not tuned but running vid
Another video to come, when it's broken in...
Oh ya, I can finally drive it

At the moment, I can't really continue tuning the car as I have to break in the charger. I've gotten the closed loop setup and a few other values.
Runs quite nicely with what SDS sent with it, only needed minor tweaks.
Fires up like the digifant and idles at 1000 quite nicely (takes a minute to warm up).
Dave was right, it does sound angry. Smooth to drive under 3500, I can get about 5 PSI, I have to tighten the serpentine belt as it slips after 5 PSI.
First week gremlins.
Manual steering is cool, only pain is parking lots
