    I'd rather add AWD than do an engine swap....

    I feel that same way about the engine swap. But it's fun to consider what one could do. Especially when the mad scientists at N are putting engines in the back.

    Honestly the VT is a fantastic looking car. And if I had gobs of cash it would be the skin over the top of some sort of awesome one-off masterpiece. But, my funds are smaller than my imagination...

    I donno... with some modding and tuning, mid/upper 200s whp is pretty good for a 2800(ish)lb car. Plus that extra power isn't very expensive either. If you were going to improve upon that in any way I think N nailed it.

    It's not geared for acceleration and I'm talking about from the factory, no mods. Us who mod our cars are only 5% of the people buying the cars.

    Mid/Upper 200 whp is simple to achieve. I know most people on here on the forum whom mod their car are looking for a 350+ whp capable stock motor/transmission setup. What makes you think why there's only like 4-5 guys so far here on the forum that has actually tore apart their engine to upgrade their internals. The rest are staying with basic bolt-ons that they'll get bored in a few years after the second generation VT and other newer cars come out with the same or more stock whp as your "modded" VT because it gets too expensive to tear engines apart when you don't have the means or skills to do it yourself.
    Confused...
