pretty cool idea, put just about anything in a caddy besides the factory engine options and its a beast

I like the effort and talent around the build, but even as not that rabid of a VW fan, the Honda engine in there just does not seem right or do it for me. So many cooler VW options imo........

You know, theres a lot of people out there that are pioneering different swaps and frankensteins.

While you may think its stupid to put a k20 into a caddy, thats fine, but understand that it takes a lot of work.

no one is disputing the fact that it took a lot of time and effort to get that motor in that car, they just arent happy with his motor selection.

First off, props to them for making it work. The K20 in that chassis is going to be a kick-ass combination power wise, and it sets them up for all kinds of possiblities from here on (20/24 Hybrids, Turbo, etc.) all of which are great options.

The term has absolutely nothing to do with the fueling system involved, Normally Aspirated / Naturally Aspirated indicate the same thing, that the engine is drawing air at atmospheric pressure into its combustion system, without any outside influence.

That would be pretty pathetic, considering I'm just stating something google could have proven in 5 seconds.
