    If it's done properly, then I personally don't see a problem with it. As long as you are happy, and your insurance are aware of the changes you have made, then everyones a winner as far as I can see.

    If done properly then i think there fine! I would go the other way though and put a vxr engine in a standard body shell and run a sleeper
