On the mention of the Boss Festiva, I recall a company in the US or UK who were apparently doing conversions for the Ford Focus based on a concept at SEMA.

5.0L, RWD conversions...

Get one 1300cc Hyabusa motor, or better still, you can buy billet blocks, and cranks that is essentially 2 Hyabusa motors together, thats right kiddies, a 2600cc V8 that make insane horsepower, and is as big as a 13B

You could probably fit the motor in the rear of the vehicle. Run a rear wheel drive transaxel.

Are you going to drive from the tray?

Wedging big motors into small cars have been done before, but within reason. 16 years ago there was an article in Street Machine of a Morris Minor with a 454 in it. Was insane looking at it but then once the novelty wore off (2 mins later) it was just another car.

Especially today where bigger power can be made in smaller packages and also the results being increasingly better with forced induction, one wonders how much spare time you have. :)

the way i see this project would be to not use a mighty boy but use a su bar roo brumbey and put the i6 in that and make it AWD some how f**k that would unstoppable no loss of traction or nothing.

or have you thought of putting like late model laser engines in it fwd woudn't need much converting
