My brother is thinking about fitting a EJ subie engine into a Fiat X19. Could be hard, but it looks possible. I was thinking about using a EA82 5 speed in there but it appears it would stick out the back of the car about 10"s :-/
Also how hard would it be to convert one of these trans into just front wheel drive, as the Fiat X1/9 is a mid engine car it needs a front wheel drive set up to drive the rear wheels. Anyhow, know what I'm on about?? Thanks

Saker originally used the 2wd box in their production vehicles, behind a modified ej20 turbo producing 450ish hp. The relibility factor went rapidly out the window at higher power levels and using slick tyres. They now use a WRX box as a 2wd, with the 4wd capped off.

pic is a bit vague, but shows something of the mid mounted ej20 layout, and rear overhang.
EDIT: this applies to manual boxes.... the autos in the legacies are just as big 2wd as 4wd, and cannot be shortened, at least the ones ive seen which is pre 1994.
