    I have always held the belief that swapping a LS series motor into anything is automatically win. This for all intents and purposes is win, but why does it feel wrong?

    I wonder if bren can tune in a fuel dump... My racecar did that to cool the exhaust. And to look cool.

    Don't feel right but curious on how that works out, not much room in the back of a 911.

    I have seen this in a 914. It was scary.

    I dunno. Everything in a car is about weight transfer. It seems that with a rear-engined car you'd have a huge advantage in braking because when weight transfers forward under braking you'll still have some weight on the rear wheels and can actually make use of the rear brakes / rear tires instead of completely unloading them (or damn close to it) in a F/R car.

    You should also get a pretty big advantage in acceleration for a similar reason.

    Of course, you could be worse off when it comes to corners, but if you can tune the chassis around it the disadvantages are usually outweighed by the advantages (unless you have a very laggy turbo that kicks in mid-corner like in a 930 widowmaker).

    And with mid-engine you still get that weight over the rear wheels under braking, and none of the ill effects of a large amount of mass behind the rear wheels while cornering. and did they really tune the chassis that miraculously, or did they just figure out the computer controlled stability systems.

    i'm mostly just poking fun. I've just never been a 911 fan. If people get to call the Lotus a celica in a plastic body kit, i get to say the 911 is 40 years of over-engineering a bad engine placement.
