    2 port engines, 8 inch wheels... Not much really.
    I could drop a super engine to retain 8 inch wheels, but with an open hub, or a PX/T5/LML engine into it and have 10 inch. But in my opinion it ruins the looks. Smile I don't mind going slow anyway, at least I look the bollocks.

    Would it be possible to dremel a third port into the casings for a later barrel?

    177 kit? Sounds a plan for the future...
    With dremelling a third port, the Super engines were either 2 or 3 port, the 2 ports having a space which you could dremel the third port into... I wonder if it's the same? I'll look into it.

    VBB's didn't have the space for a port. But you can get more meat welded on and then carve out port number 3
