Unless I am really missing something, this is an "apples and oranges" situation. Your '85 hatch uses the EA81 1800cc flat-4, right? And the Justy uses a 1200cc I-3, set transversely. 2 totally different beasts. Heard of people asking about putting the EA81 or EA82 into a Justy, but not the other way...

Otherwise, standard answer: Given enough money, time, effort, and money, you can do anything.
