I for one would really like to see one of these EE20 powered Syncros, doing something Syncro.

Lets see one do a VC test.

Shoot, show one spinning the front wheels on a hoist for all I care.
Lets see it all hooked up in a offroad excursion, soon there after.

Spin some tires Exclamation

I would like to know the average MPG they are getting. Couple of tanks worth of results.

The owners impression of the engine and how it drives would be nice.

Yeah, I remember seeing that. I would like to hear from a none professional mechanic EE-20 driver. What are their thoughts on how it drives and MPG they are getting. I guess there are not enough conversions done yet.

Anyone know if there will be a version of conversion for a due-it-yourselfer? I think right now the only option is to send your van to a shop and $18,000-$20,000 dollars later your set up.

Iím planning on an EE-20 sometime in the future, yet the cost has to go down for it to be worth it. I have some time though, because my build Syncro shell is coming from Texas in about a month. That will be a crazy stripped out full build from a slightly mechanically inclined guy such as myself. Hopefully it wonít take 3-4 years to complete... Laughing

P.S. Iím really liking the "Version of Conversion" term.
