Ford G63 in a Loyale

Anything is possible with enough time and money!
And to answer your question, yes the loyale uses a transaxle, but it's longitudinally mounted, not transverse like most small FWD cars.

If i was gonna put an engine from ford into a subie, it would probably be the 3.0 V-6 from the escape, its no subie, but its definately the best motor reliability wise that ford has right now.
That is assuming that every other subaru motor on the planet was unrepairable, and subaru stopped building new cars.

You could do an ej22 n/a for less money and get the 135-140 HP and have a proven path to follow as many has done it now. And if you want turbo theres a bit more work but more HP as well!!
For what it's worth, my two cents. Stumpy

Did a search for the Mitsubishi g63 and JACK POT.
Still wouldn't be my choice if I had to go buy one. If I had a good one laying around, who knows!!
If your not into the easy already traveled path, it would be different and you could be the first pioneer!!

It's their standard 2 litre inline 4, a very popular engine they've been doing since the 80s.
Comes turbocharged too, think EVO

Didn't the EVO's have a East West setup? Might make it that little bit harder.. But, it could be done. I've heard plenty of people getting the EJ22 engines in the US for under $800 and that even includes the loom and ECu most of the time.

I prefer to pick up the whole car as there are other parts needed ie: wiring harness, cpu, y-pipe ect. And I get it all for the price of or not much more than an engine would cost me.
The Mitsubishi motor is unproven in a Subie. I understand they are a good motor though. An adapter plate to mate the trans to engine would be needed. Then of coarse a fly wheel that will fit in the subie bell housing. You would have to expermint or do plenty of research as it hasn't been done as far as I know.
The ej22 is very common in older Legacy's as well as newer one's and of corse in Forester's and newer Impreza's.
There is a company out there, can't think of there name or web site at the moment but they build ej25's for sand rails that run from 300 to 600 HP, depending on what you want to spend.

If you could get me a contact to one of these engines that would be so cool.
Here's one in Denver, not sure how far from there you are.
Asking $550 obo with a shot trans.
Keep an eye on CraigsList in the car/truck and parts section for disabled ones or wrecked one's.
Edit: There are a couple in the parts section also:
Edit#2: Here is the web site I was thinking about. Spendy but lots of great stuff!!

Don't know too much about them, but they did a wideblock and a narrowblock - one for lonitudinal and one for traverse mounting. The starion had a turbo engine to RWD so might be the one to go for if you want power.
The increased centre of gravity probably won't help with cornering though.

The thought is nice too with the autos, my loyale is a manual though but ill check it out.
I would stay with the manual, less work for the transplant and in general a more reliable trans!! Stumpy
