Sure its not the most cost effective, but using the original heart and working it over gives you some very respectable returns. Lets not forget this is all in a gorgeous mtech2 package.

    Story behind the car:
    My brother bought the car in 2004, the PO went to the same high school as us but we didn't know the car at the time. My brother moved overseas so bought it off him. i actually didn't really want it as i didn't need a car at the time but it was just too nice to get rid of. You could say things kind of snowballed from there


    You can find more info about his car here

          For as long as Digger has been cranking out M20 knowledge for all of us and for how clean the car is, I'm surprised he's just now getting CotM. Congrats!
