Check out this. I am sure a lot of you have seen it, but I thought I would share even though this section is pretty dead.
Wonder how a light car like that with an eigne planted so far back is like. Looks similar to my friends s2000 and rx8 engine bay.

Very nice work on the Z, I think the SR20 looks a little too small for that big of an engine compartment. I know it's been done before but a RB26DETT would look better in there.

yeah, that too. The vg30 is not bad either but a lil wide. A sr20 would be super light, and I would imagine how it would steer. A 6 cyl would fit nice too.

Is it too sacreligeous(spelling?) to be thinking an EJ20 swap would be sweet? Imagine! the entire engine behind the strut towers AAAAND flat against the ground. piping might not so bad since the turbo is placed on the passenger side away from the steering box. Plus i think a 240z with a wrx sound coming from it would be pretty mean. Besides, subarus have nissan parts in them, why not the other way around?

It's a stout motor I'm sure someone would do it eventually. I just like sticking with the same engine manufacturer as the car, just one of my oddities.
