Care to elaborate? Whenever I see 'end of story', 'period', or 'enough said' I always think the person is trying too hard to declare victory too soon. You even see those terms in Hotrod magazine. The editors use them.
Most of the time they are saying that domestic cars are superior to import cars in every way. Period. FWD cars will never break into the tens. End of story.
The 'within reason' part is where I think you have a point, so I'd like to hear it. This thead is basically a feasibility study. We know the engine and transmission fit in a WRX with some work. That's a given. We know that earlier Imprezas are nearly identical platforms, but cheaper. We know that LS1-T56 combos make good power and should be very reliable in a small car like a GC. No broken transmissions.
