For now I'd say leave it where it is and if it catches on and gets a lot of traffic than give it better visability on the front page?
I was thinking to move it up and make it more obvious so it would get more traffic. I have a few ideas, will share with the community in a few weeks time.

The threads are different... just posted a couple pics becasue it will add power to a 308.

I guess for 308 power it would help to know which 308.

The CIS car are lower to start with but the easiest to add boost to. There are a couple option out there to bolt-on 100 hp in the $6k-$10k range. QV cars like the CIS 2v cars will gain 100 hp from bolt-on boost.

Removing the CIS and converting to EFI is good for 20-30 hp. Then you can add any cam grind you please and pick up another 10-30hp.

Porting helps all of them but it helps EFI converted cars the most, particularly if you add a custom intake or ITBs. 300-350 hp is possible here.

That would be tough...I did do a 500ci Cadillac into a fiat x1/9 back in my younger and stupider days. What a silly thing that was. It turned up on ebay 6 or 8 years ago, the guy who had it said he was afraid to drive it. That project helped me understand that often there is is difference between to can be done and what should be done.....I thing a V16 850 would fall on the can be done side of the line
