Default Engine Option 2: 2110 Stroker

Option number 2 is a 90.5 x 84 stroker clocking in at 2110cc and 150hp. It's a slightly milder build, but still enough umph.

Is there any advantage of a forward lifting trunk lid? looks like its easier access.

I can't imagine too much of an advantage... more for style. I believe the square has something to do with the hinge location.

Default Paul's Chrome

I heard about these folks on the "My Classic Car" program and they appear to do fantastic work. They are a bit on the expensive side, but typically you get what you pay for and their work is backed by a lifetime guarantee.
