Cut the stock frame rails out and move them outward? With small diameter coils you could reform the inner strut tower and get it to fit.
That would probibly get you another 4 inches or so. Getting the plugs out is gonna suck unless you cut holes like said above.

Subies hang the motor in front of the struts? Or you could cut firewall out and put the engine behind the strut towers.. Kinda like a mid front engine thing.

Yes, most have about half the transmission in the engine bay. And a long shifter mechanism to reach the trans.

It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Couple more pics.

Based on the valve cover/4cam design and the turbo, I'm inclined to believe it's a EJ20G from the early 90s.


Does anyone know where these pictures came from? Would like to find the build thread if it's on the forums.

Not on this forum, no. It's an Aussie car.

FWIW you can also look in to ej15 or ej16. They are shorter stroke and I'm pretty sure they are shorter deck height, so narrower motor overall.

Also might want to research the "strutless wonder" 510. As I recall, it used mostly later RX7 bits?

Not sure if it would offer as much clearance for the Subaru engine, but thought I'd mention it just in case...
