Check out this video we put together showing exactly what it takes to drop the GT3's motor. This is definitely not something you see everyday - so who better to share it with than our loyal and awesome members! Enjoy!

So how would an aircooled car compare?

I haven't seen an equally well done video of that.

Cheers...

The air-cooled "oil thing" is almost equal to the coolant thing. Maybe a little messier.

Hi Barry,

We pulled the motor to weld the coolant lines to part of the manifold. This car is used for tracking as well and we didn't want to take the chance of dumping coolant on the track.
