I have had the bug itself for a few years as a stock baja then tore it all down and its been just over a year to make it where its at now. its been taking so long because I started the build when I was 17 and the $$$ was slow coming. but 18 now with a construction structural steel welding job and the money is flowing and can now finish it :D

Much heavier motor, you will get a little more body roll, and the overall handleing of the car will suffer. However you have a motor for the life of the vehicle, plenty of power, and an overall much more reliable, and affordable car to prep.
