    A lot of money... I have heard that you need to widen the framerails in front, but not for sure

    Stick w/ a 12V...Better motor IMO. Has a MUCH stronger injection pump that 24V's. Plus the 12V is all mechanical so the install will be MUCHO easier..

    I've heard the 4BT rattles and vibrates alot, much worse than the 6BT. What is your impression.
