[T3] Subaru engine fitment for a Type III?


Here are̗ictures of a Subaru engine I took when Matt and I went to
the
Portland Convention Center for the new model car show.

After making some quick measurements it looks as though the engine (and not
tranny) will fit in length and width but depth-wise is iffy.  A stock height
vehicle, quite possibly without much fear of hitting roadkill.  In a lowered
vehicle I think the oil pan would be too close to the ground for comfort
(assuming one keeps the engine below the decklid).  If a modified, flattened
oil
pan could be used then it would be a definite possibility.  These engines
can
come with a turbo as well.

Just keeping the Dark Side alive,
