    I am unimpressed.

    My tractor is a true hot rod.

    Two years ago, it blew it's engine.

    I had to dig to find a new one that would fit the mounting pattern but I did.

    Old engine: 680cc's (.68L for you dang ferriners)
    New engine: 724cc's (.72L for you dang ferriners)

    Old engine: 21 HP
    New engine: 24 HP

    The problem I had was I was running straight pipes at first on the new engine because the muffler didn't match up the inlets with the pipes for the engine.

    So I had to cut, section and clock the mounting flanges to get the pipes to match the muffler.

    Yes, I needed the muffler because the new engine was burning the grass with the straight pipes.

    So I engine swapped my tractor for a bigger engine with more power and built custom exhaust headers for it.

    You can take your fancy pants Honduhs and V8 lawnmowers that can't do anything more than go fast and shove it.

    I have a supercharged pickup truck for going fast and a hot rod lawn tractor for pulling tree trunks around my yard to build erosion dykes with and to strap up a snow blower for shoveling my 300 feet of driveway in an hour and a half.
