there's a big long build thread over on Fj with the same title... check it out if you are curious about the history behind this car.

I like the wheels too. But if they aren't chrome, what are they (apologize my ignorance!)?

I'm not sure why people don't like the wheels. I think they look great...especially with that color. Since I like unique, I'd take that engine swap over something with twice the power as well. Nice car!

It's just a standard SVT-C mtx that came right front the factory in all contours.

The swap is fun don't get me wrong it's just not even close to worth it if you are after anything more than a modest jrsc sized bump in power, something unique under the hood and a nice sound out of the back. But don't expect it to be some god send of power or reliability.... If you are after that swap in a dtec and turbo it with a FS kit!
