Ah now, don't be giving me ideas! I think that if I did such a thing, I'd be expelled for blasphemy.

But the Ebay auction description is so extensive! It goes into deep details on how was the "400HP" figure achieved, dyno graphs, fully documented build and those sweet red cam covers with the written "specs" are undeniable proof that for a mere 20K Euro you are getting the "real deal" - those covers alone are most likely worth the asking price. WOW!

That's why I'll take Lucas' advice and, if I ever take the mad notion to increase power, I'll work on what I have, rather than buy in something unproven like this. I might even paint my rocker covers red!
