    I actually had a dream about this awhile back...

    Somebody posted that since our cars dont retain crazy value when restored compared to a 1969 musty fastback, but I was never a fan of the big v8s. Personal pref.

    Anyways, i was thinking that since most of them are rwd anyways, why not drop the s2000 engine in one.

    Guess somebody beat me to it, probably a million times over too :p

    Its been done. Mustangs are too damn heavy for that motor though..

    I like the ford project, that thing is sexah! Its going to take some serious suspension magic for that car to actually run around a track.. Shorter wheel base than the 2k, not nearly as wide, way way lighter.. It'll be a fast little bastard if he can keep it on the track!

    I am totally envious of his garage.. 1800sq ft of work space.. :drool:

    I saw a tr6 with an S2k engine.

    It wasn't running yet of course, but it was mounted in, just waiting on drive shaft, axles, and the rear diff mounts to come back from the machinist.

    I would like to chop up a shitty CRX to put in a F20C with the Civic WagoVan rear end.

    And while we're on the swapping topic, my dad had a Spitfire and he almost swapped in a european V6 Ford engine. He went to Austrailia, the shop owner turned into a crackhead and sold my dads car. :(

    Someone is doing this already, but they have the sense to use a s14 rear end. Hell the S2k rear would be a better choice. Or a shortened Ford 9", or pretty much every small rear drive setup other than the wagovan rear end which was designed to handle a fraction of the output from a D16.

    my rwd crx project CRX2000!

    I've never seen that CRX build. When I first clicked through I thought, "Oh no, why would you do that to such a clean CRX?". Then as I read and looked at the pictures, it's obvious that guy knows exactly what he is doing.
