Another issue i faced was shortening the overall length of the V8. To do this, I removed the water pump and built a narrow manifold to flow water in and out. I will use a remote electric water pump to flow coolant. Also, I am using a corvette harmonic balancer (its short) and only running an alternator off this pully. Here is a pic. The engine was also re wired to run as a stand alone system and i later flpped the intake manifold to suck in from the rear.
So now it is time to address the subframe issue. the OEM one interferes with the bottom of the porsche transaxle so it is time to build one from scratch. I used the oem frame to build a jig which created mounting positions to the frame and suspension points (4). Then I connected these points with tube steel and plate.
Here are some pictures of the shifter install. The shifter is from a boxster S and sits up way to high. I had to cut some of the MR2 floor out as well as shorten and lift up the cable mounts to tuck everything in. It may still be to hide under the center console trim (which i do not have for test fitment. It does shift awesome though.
The horsepower is not the issue. They only recommend 300 ft lb of torque. The good news is people are using this trans with a LS3 crate motor putting out 375 ft lbs with no issue other than breaking drive shafts.
