For generations, gearheads across the world (particularly the United States), have been cramming the largest possible engines or adding forced induction into tiny cars in order to make hooning as easy as possible. Then the following happened…
For two weeks, this picture of a Z06 Corvette with a Honda 4-cylinder motor swap has been circulating across all corners of the Internet, causing much confusion and heart failure amongst ‘Vette enthusiasts.

Most importantly, it wouldn’t sound right, nor shred tires properly.
