Thought of type 4 due to the bus set up and the 411 saloon fan air intake system

Need to measure and see what to cut if anything
Seeing that the bus when from T1 to T4 set up
Why not my Thing

I also have a complete 72 fasty F.I. engine sitting there
I'm trying to think ahead for use and off road use in various altitudes

T4 upright cooling?
Have any other pics of install or cutting required?
Or does the upright set take care of that?

T4 air intake could help keep air used from In side instead of on top of exhaust

Consider an Oxyboxer, a WBXer case altered into an oversized T-1 engine. Longer stroke, bigger pistons, and a factory engineered oil filtration system.

No cutting and fits just so nice. I have been using this as my daily driver for 6 years now and love it. With the freeway flyer and CSP disc brakes I can keep up with a my Wife's Toyota Carola. Over 35,000 reliable miles to date.
