So after a few years of ruminating on whether to do the SR20DE or the L16SSS I recently found or a V8 track day only car, I finally decided that I would just keep the A-series engine.

I have my single seat race car so that cures my desire for a fast car which makes it an easier decision.

I started assembling the A15 on Saturday, I had the block bored last summer, so I figured it was time.

In terms of miles and smiles/$ it's hard to go past a datto with an A series. I'll be keeping an eye on progress of the A!5

At some point in life I may try to build one up with an E16 crank.At 1700cc 125whp is possible with a pretty moderate build.

Tom, if you really want "smiles per miles", take an early A12 block with the distributor up front. Use an A15 crank with short con rods and short pistons. Everyone will assume right away it's a 1200 from the distributor location, and because you have a 1200 car. ... THAT's what I'm going to do with my 1200 race car.
