Did you build those decals?
Yeah, we should make up a Saturday afternoon/evening to hang out and see your stuff.

Holy balls, that axle looks more reinforced than one you'd see on a monster truck!
So what're your plans for an engine? 2.2, 2.5, 2.0 turbo wrx motor, or do you have room for an eg33?

It is the width between framerails.NOt depth.
Ah, good to know. You'd think that if people fit Chevy smallblocks into Toyotas, one could fit a 6 cylinder boxer. I mean... since you're custom fabbing everything, couldn't you just shift everything back a few inches?

I do not think it is necessarily wider.But as it is I have to move the EJ series up above the framerails.And turbo in racing ids awesome,to much to worry about on a trail system....etc.....
Ah I gotcha. Didn't realize the EG33 was that much wider. And I suppose if you really wanted the power, you could much more easily drop in a WRX motor since you have plenty of room for intercooler piping. But like you said, a frankenmotor or even just a rebuilt 2.5 would probably fit the bill fine.

i wish something like an eg33 would fit in there, because that would be just awesome. But looking at that engine bay you're going to be tight with an ej22. what i was able to do on my mazda was basically put the bottom of the heads right above the frame rail. i just wonder how close that will get you to being lined up.
i ordered a second bell housing from bill, so i'm shoving an eg33 in something, i don't know what yet, but damn it i'll make it fit in something fun.

Your still talking unibody.Your going to have to talk live axle for me to be able to understand you.My build man.Don't need ideas.Just spectators;)
Since he's pretty much having to custom fab everything, wouldn't be that difficult to cut out the existing "frame rails" and make more room. I've been considering doing that to mine anyway just cause they're so weak and I wanna make a full subframe under my car that ties into the bumpers.
