Great Work, I Really Like your Project, and it is the Second car that I've seen that the Transmission Swap will let part of it to be inside the Cabin; (but the other one wasn't a Subaru)
I Guess You'll Fabricate a Surrounding cover for it, could I Ask if you already have considered that its Size could Shorten the Pedals Space?
