That gave Tuerck and his team creative license, which was needed to jam the Ferrari mill into the spot where a flat-four once sat. There was a lot of cutting and fab work just to fit the motor, never mind the engine’s air intake setup. It was a massive undertaking, and certainly off of the beaten path, but it’s alive and it’s more than functional…it howls. Check this out:
