i think its funny that people are so sure this won't work and claiming you cant put a v8 north south. paul woods already did an audi r8 v8 north south in an mk1 and is now in the process of a bmw v12 north south.

i agree with bill strong, don't shun idea's like this and say it isn't possible, anything is possible with money and with out people coming up with idea's we would all still have 100% stock mr2's here on the board and it would be boring.

Hey Bill How about a Jet engine ?

Now back to an LFA engine.
If one could find one at a 'reasonable' price, -why not ?

If you crash what is arguably the best handling car ever, does that make you a terrible driver?

Get the chinese to reverse engineer the LFA motor. They'll fill it with cheaper parts, less quality aluminum and you can install that in your MR2.

While at it, CF wrap the crossmember so it has the look.
