    A friend of mine posted this on bookface and I took a stern Disliking to it. I said MWR sold out. Here's why: there's already a decent amount of K swapped lotus cars. I'm fine with that but for a company that has dealt with the ZZ for so long to do this seems like a sellout move. It'll be good for business but I can see it causing an issue for some people. Idk thoughts?

    My car crew buddies (all Honda big surprise) have been pushing me to do a k swap for a while. I think it's a good but pricey move.

    not really a big issue, a good business needs to expand to make money...BUT if they phase out ZZ family parts n swaps from the site to just honda swaps then it would raise red flags with many.

    The swap is a good move. I just think MWR selling this swap is going to hurt their image some.

    ZZ owners are cheap for the most part.

    People who own lotus cars have money to invest in better engines. A K Series Honda motor is a lot better than the zz engines.

    More people spend money on Honda motors.
