• 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.

  • 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.
