Can anyone forsee any problems associated with the swap? Anything to watch out for? We are not swapping original manifolds, both intake and exhaust, but leaving them in place, will this work?

Cheers

Yeah, that's pretty rat s**t for the next Rebel buyer :lol: They may as well just do a complete engine swap...

Ticky_6 is right though. Plug clearance would be your biggest issue.
