  1. I can’t believe they went through all that trouble to swap in a 2.4 with 182 hp when they could have done the Ecotec 2.0 turbo with 260 hp. The turbo version can easily be tuned to 300+ hp.

    Imagine a 400hp turbo Cosworth Vega!!!

    1. Probably better predictability on the 2.4, Turbos add a bit of unknown, especially at that kind of power level. I bet this is a very fun car to drive especially at the price

    1. David M,
      Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe the engine exploded or something but I really hope nobody pulled out the original engine to put this in it. There would be two reasons to like a Vega, it has the cosworth engine or you bought one that had already been turned into a drag car at which they did a good job of.
