    Is there a way to quiet down a motorcycle engine so it doesn’t sound like a random orbit sander through a bullhorn? It’s the one thing about motorcycle based engine swaps that bugs me – they sound like crotch rockets.

    VERY cool car in all other respects, though. Well thought out and put together very well.
