    fwd ht4100 swap to ecotec/quad 4

    I just had this crazy idea, and I thought I would see what people thought.

    Take like a 1987 Eldorado, and drop in an ecotec 2.3 with a 5 speed. Maybe even get one of the turbo/supercharged ones like in the cobalt ss. Put on a nice exhaust (no fart can) and some nice mesh style 18 inch wheels, drop the suspension a little bit, and off you go! Might even be faster than stock!

    What about just 17s? The idea is just to make it look high performance, not like a low-rider or a donk. Not chrome rims either, just some nice silver ones. BMW style. Maybe ASA AR1s.

    Why would you want a quad 4? Talk about a high tech piece of junk. And the 4.9 outperforms it.
    And lowered with 18s? Why bother? It would look ricer-ish. Some 16s or 17s with stock ride height would look better.
