Well, almost. Here's my car's original engine stripped down and ready to go to it's new owner. Yes, it does fit and the trunk even closes!

That is awesome.....I knew these trunks were big and the motors were small (2.2L is even smaller than that 2.5 you have). But I had no idea that it actually would fit!

Carefully! I used an engine hoist to slowly maneuver it in. It should be interesting if we have to pull it out by hand. I've got the exhaust ports sitting on some 4x4 wood posts so the whole thing stays upright and stable.

This car would be much more awesome if you put another engine in the back seat too!!!! I'd love to see the handling of a mid-engine legacy!!!

because you have an impreza, haha.

Is that a 2.0 or 2.5, or is it an H6? It looks ginormous, but then again, imprezas are smaller.

Thumbs up

You should hook that thing up all Monster Garage-style and actually make a dual-engined Leg. That would rock!

We just did the same thing this weekend in my wife's RS, didn't get any pics though...

To make it fit we pulled the intake manifold , a/c, alternator and ps pump, the longblock is light enough that we could lift it easily between 2 people.

I found the easiest way to keep the motor upright is to sit it inside an old tire.
