All I got to do now is get a camera so I can get some amazing shots...
Hmm, getting quoted on this a bit and I fully admitt, I know little of the motor swap myself. Heard the P-51 motor is more powerful and slips right in more or less? Could be I read it wrong, might be a different UM motor. The more I think about it, the more I think my Champ will stay stock.
