How bout putting the Fwd K -member out of a northstar Caddy with it's 4t65E in the back of the car. it would become a mid engine 2 seater with a 32v aluminum v-8. It can be had for real cheap too. Think about it: motor, trans, lower control arms all on one frame/ You can reuse the strut towers on the subie. All you gotta do is replace the rack with some fixed tie rods. Off the shelf brakes/struts replacement parts.

You could even weld the spider gears on teh center diff and keep the front engine as well.

If you are planning on making 550 hp.. why wouldnt you make it easy on yourself and stay with a R180 or a slightly larger Rxxx rear end.. this would be alot easier to bolt up and you could use aftermarket replacement axles... and also probably less weight.

I believe this will work fine... Subaru engines are so Wide. any measurements yet?
IF you use the current engine mount placement then I think you will have to move your firewall back. But if you move the engine mounts forward then you might be able to make up for the extra clearance needed.

For sure this would not be a suitable swap for a track car, althought would be ok for drag or a daily driver.

Good luck.. lets see some pictures

Some pics to illustrate the size of the ls1:

LS1 in a 944 Turbo:
The beam going across the LS1 intake is the hood latch, which is not needed on a car using pins...


Stock 944 Turbo:



The LS1 is pretty effin small. And its light as hell too, and in fact in a 944 Turbo for ex. it is the same weight at the all aluminum 4 banger turbo it replaces. There potential here in a Subaru. Hell, Prodrive relocates motors 6 in back all the time...

I can't wait to see it sitting in the car. As long as the motor is sitting as far back against the firewall as you can get it it shouldn't handle much different. If you ever get the chance to ride in a rx7 with a v8 it can be demonstrated how you can use the extra torque to make up for weight gains.

I would be willing to bet that by the time he swaps everything over he won't be more than an 100-200 pounds extra.

Are you planning on doing a custom gauge cluster or are you going to attempt to use the stock gauges.

ls1 swaps are sweet, but in a WRX, eh... if it doesn't keep awd, whats the f'ing point! Get a rx7 and put your ls1 there. rx7 looks way better, they make kits, and it weighs 300 lbs less with the ls1 than a stock WRX.

Funny thing is, when you take the rotary out of the 3rd gen rx7 and put a ls1 in, it weighs less! (iron vs. aluminum)

How do you plan to put 800whp to some 235 rear tires? Do you think it will be even slightly drivable?
