BTW this is an Indian DOC's room somewhere in Texas..

I mean you are looking for an engine table, so thought will put up a pic..

Nice idea...but the engines we get here would usually be from some crappy car so wouldn't look all that cool.

After looking at those pix, a cheaper alternative would be to use a good alloy wheel. It'll look good too if the design is good. Then having it shod with low pro nice threaded tyres will make it look even better
