It can be done but I am not sure I understand why. You basically have to own a 916 and then buy a TL motor to go in it. It isn't like you can replace your TL frame with a 916 frame.

I've seen pictures of a 916 with a TL motor, it can be done but is complicated and of dubious value. The fitment of the motor necessarily changes frame flex charcteristics and weight distribution and looks a bit cobbled together imho. If your after less weight/better handling and a TL motor there are better ways of going about it (terry shepard frame for one). If its just about posing your better off with the duk motor anyway:) Just my 2c have fun
