This is the best engine to come along for improving the car in weight, power and handling.

My LNF is near 300 HP with just the change of the Maps and just a flash and with a little more tuning can do up to 400 HP before you need to change the rods and pistons. GM has a sport compact book out that details the Eco line and it is amazing what you can do with the engine.

When John Lingenfelter was alive he was working with the Ecotec and raced one for my work. He was up to 1500 HP with the stock head and block before he was cracking the heads. He was having fun doing the work to this engine.

Millen was running one in a Solstice in the pro drifting series and won it. He had a Eco 500 HP LNF and ran it a whole season with out one break down or repair.

Do it because you can. Do it for wow factor. Do it to be different. Do it because others say you can't.

Don’t worry the spirit will soon be crushed when you know who comes back to compare that rat rods trunk to the Miata.
