It is well established that: Small Car + Big Engine = Hot Rod. The bigger the engine and the smaller the recipient vehicle, the hotter the rod. Putting a 1.8 liter in your Honda CRX? Mild hot rod. Putting a Space Shuttle SRB in your Peel P50? The hottest of rods. Installing a motorcycle engine in a car seems to be a violation of this rule. I hope you will agree with me after reading this article: it is anything but.
