hmmmm, could be an interesting project to get anything bigger than a 600cc motor in there i think.
i can only find people that have done a turbo conversion. i'd like something different, thats all.....
datto 1200 utes been done a bit, something small with good power is wat i'm thinking of. hmmm.

Traction will be a problem though.
That will probley mean bigger tyres.

Pretty sure you will have to use E- series brakes or something better if you put a i6 into it.
Custom cross member
Fwd to Rwd
Suspension
Would engine clear steering
emission test maybe
Custom gearbox mounting bracket
Custom gearbox adapter to engine. Depends on what gearbox.

Pletty more things to think about.

i'm pretty sure they have rwd mightyboys, the older ones i think. not 100%, thats another thing i havnt thought of, the weight over the front as opposed to the back. and fitting the brakes
