    Cool swap. Might as well throw a turbo on it as well.

    Truly a compelling build. There's the tiniest Venn diagram overlap of Cosworth Vega fans looking for an Ecotec swap – and I'm almost one of them. No air conditioning however was the lack of overlap that prevents me from investigating further.

    I'd be partial to this same swap in an early Vega, when it looked like a scaled-down 2nd gen Camaro. Ecotec 2.2s are super cheap, and they respond very well to turbocharging up to ~350hp. That would be a lightweight fun little thing.

    Having built V-6 and V-8 Vegas this is a nice modern day swap.

    Seems about $3K too much. Very nice build.

    Agree on the nice build but… the Cosworth just does it for me. Even if only in name, it’s a grand name to associate with.
