Hi josh

That engine is a bargain if its all good. Nice to see someone else going for lynx-ae kit. Have you ordered your kit yet?

If you need any info I can certainly help I have one of his first kits and been playing around with it for a while. Don't worry about lightening too much it will be plenty quick enough. Mine ways 500kg and I am still working on the handling to cope with the extra power and the way it is delivered.

I am running a 2001 5jj. Not sure there are any huge benefits from running injection. Plenty of power, traction is an issue in the wet but maybe partly down to tires. You should contact lynx before you are ready as I believe there maybe a short league time to get a kit ready.
