Go for it Scott.Heck maybe there's a good 6cyl motor out there.I've got the ER27 if you are interested.(XT6 motor).Also have the tranny-5spd w/locking center diff. Talk to me,I'm looking to pay the rent.

Witte has done this.Requires radiator relocation,etc.

How about putting it (or a 2.7 like Moosens has) in a Justy? One would think with that much power, and that little weight, fuel economy wouldn't suffer unless you drove it like a real nut; there'd be more iron between you and another object in the event of an accident; and more traction without 4wd engaged. Something to think about, if the dimensions are anywhere near possible for something like that.

I would suggest an EJ series in a GL body or an EA82T in a justy body :evil:

OR an EF12 (Justy motor) with an intercooler, raised boost, opened exhaust, and a turbo off of a Sprint Turbo.. I hear they bolt on....

Did I hear Sprint? Imagine an EJ12 with that setup, in a Metro convertible body. Just thinking out loud...besides Subaru has only made 2 convertibles available Stateside.
