    I dont think I will get into the ic pipes and stuff. All I did was rip the old engine out and set the 4g63 in there. If you look closely you can see the engine is just sitting on a folded up piece of paper to keep it flat. It's not connected to anything.
    Thanks for the comments guys

    That engine means you hacked up one of the rare 1990 factory scale models in order to get it. What was wrong with the dealer model?

    I grabbed a decent one in the original box and foam and it cost me $90+ on ebay a couple years ago.

    No guys. The only hacking I did was of the $20 vette. All I ever had was just the engine of the 4g63. I didn't have the whole car. I didnt want to damage the 4g63 engine so its actually just sitting in there with a folded up piece of paper under it to keep it straight. I pretty much just ripped out the corvette motor and set that in there. It is a plastic 4g63 engine that my brother found in his honda.

    Either way that motor's originally from one of the dealer models. Pretty rare item to just find laying around, but pretty cool too.
