I sold all my TT Vq shit to Cracka when he was drunk and cashed up with fitment to his Gen 3 liberty sedan as part of the deal. I needed cash for the Crown's billion $ body resto and Cracka has lots so I swindled it out of him.
Finally rolled it into the home shed on thursday and started pulling the melted subaru engine out. Dropped it completely out on saturday and dropped the Vq in but it wouldn't fit because it is the tallest engine ever built. I cut the fuck out of the sump and it still wouldn't fit. I cut the eyeballs out of the Xmember and it still wouldn't fit under the bonnet, like by about 100mm. I put it down to the gay way subaru have built there Xmember. It seems they buill it to fit subaru engines rather than nissan V6's.
I thought I'd throw the V12 in there for laughs and it fitted better than the stupid V6. So then I rang Cracka and told him he needed a V12 instead and he said whatever, as long as it skids.
So Face came down today and we figured out a Xmember/rack mounting modification that would have the least impact on steering geometry and allow the engine to fit.
Proof that the bonnet shuts.
Proof that it opens.
Acres of space in there, the std headers will even fit with a bit of fettling.
Need a bellhousing and T56 now.
