Great article Matt, and great progress! What is the plan for the 2.1L in the C?

thanks! It'll all be new parts - thinking scat crank / carillo rods and pistons / modern (Ladow) filter / custom map electric distrib in original housing / standard dansk exhaust etc... so a subtle outlaw ... but with 140-150 bhp ;)
