Re: Other motor options..how difficult to adapt?
CAnt tell ya about how easy it is to get that motor into a sami, but I drive an Echo and I can tell ya the motor doesnt feel as ballsy as the numbers sound. I believe the echo is lighter than a sami, too. Its a lot ballsier than the 1.3 in my sami, but the 1.3 deals with really low revs a lot better, in my opinion.
The motor is worthless below 2000, starts to come on around 2500, pulls great from about 2750 up to about 4000 and keeps pulling after that, though not as strongly.
Would be interesting to see how the swap worked though!
