I wonder if people have tried to stick a soob engine in one of these?

Is it possible?

~$1800 at ebay, and missing an engine:

Why? The Porche engine has more HP than any Subaru.

Yes, it will fit, and they make engine adapters for it too. Cheaper to maintain a soob engine, I think.

I'm not so sure, the Porsche H4's of the late 60's early 70s are only around 100 hp.

Anyway, Rob, the main reason would simply be cost.

Isn't it obvious?

Or, suppose you had an east coast rustbucket and needed a body? I think it would be sweet.
