i have seen a xe with a boss motor also when i asked this same question couple months ago for an xh... it seems the e-series are just about the only cars that havent hada boss motor jammed into em yet, but for what some of u guys are saying, sounds easier then carving up the x-series engine bays...

yes the 3V's are a under rated motor

just see shaun(xt3valve) in his 3v BA lionhunter thats got a M122H eaton blower on it maxing out the heads running a high 12 with 3/4 track spin.

in a lighter car with traction that would be a weapon for sure.

might hit him up to put it in the EA's bay for now as seen as its retired hurt atm.

s**t it like twice the width!


Note that the width is mostly Head. The Block sizes without the heads on are almost the same.

Unfortunately thats the disadvantage of using an OHC layout on a 90 degree Vee engine. On with the show!
