engine swaps are fun. but not worth it if you have to take the decklid off like that. You coulld flip the tranny mounts around and replace the front mount with a mid mount, and that would move the engine forward 2 inches. You would need to shorten your shift rod 2 inches though. Good luck.
I hate that car. That's such a terrible idea. It looks horrible, totally screws up the weight distribution, and why bother when you can get the same kind of power from another motor that is lighter and would fit correctly?
