    If you want to get a Spoon engine just because you want one, go for it. Don't modify it though- it's a Spoon engine, not a base for you to build on. Honestly, I think you should just build up from scratch, rather than blowing excessive cash on a name brand just because you can. Better yet- buy a new car and don't worry about it, or build up something nice/simple/fast and invest the leftover money.

    the people at spoon, so far as I've read anyway, are more endurance racing minded so far as there choice of poison. If you really have that kind of money to spend you need to spend some serious time doing research, start with the question "what do I want, specifically. The ask youself "I wonder what a $15K lapdance would feel like?"

    :werd: dont waste your money on a spoon engine just because its "spoon" check out some of the engine builders like JG Engine Dynamics or Import Builders... you will find better engines with more power for far less money than a fully built spoon engine... they will also take into consideration how you plan to use the engine (daily driver, drag car, short road course, long road course, etc...) so you will get an engine designed for how YOU will use it, not an engine designed for a race team in japan that couldnt give a rats ass how you plan to use it...

    hmmmmmm a $15k lapdance

    $15k lapdance would be awesome,better be a little more than a lapdance though.Oh right,spoon motors,um why?Like E Solsi said import builders or another company that builds motors.Import builders has great complete swap rebuilds that would produce hella more power for a fraction the cost.
