Default Porsche 550 Kit Spyder Conversion

I am looking for information on dropping an EJ20 or similar boxer engine into a Beck Porsche 550. Has anyone done one of these? There does not seem to be much information online.

Interesting cars. Have you researched it any? They come with transverse mounted water cooled FWD engines that are installed in the back (I just read the brochure). Seems to me that you'd be better off installing something like a Honda K20 engine than a subaru engine. I can't imagine a subaru engine/tranny would even fit.

It does look like you get a VW air cooled engine in the lessor spider which would probably be a candidate for a subaru swap. You'd still have to add a radiator.

Boulder Speedster delivers Beck speedsters with Ej22's in them. I would contact them since they also deal in the Spyder. They only show an air cooled VW on their website but that doesn't mean they haven't done an EJ in it.
