    dumb fuck idea alert
    i've done some google fu and it looks like the ez36 bolts into one of these
    i.e. bolts up to stock gearbox, albeit starter on incorrect side
    engine mounts almost identical
    so physically it doesn't look too hard
    i assume the electronics side of things has been solved given the number of swaps around.
    aircon.. idk if there is some ecu fuckery there as well
    the idea of a pocket GT3 sounding thing for not a great deal of money sounds appealing.
    see here at 18min mark for inspiration - in a gc8 but sounds great

      not a dumb idea at all, though you will get more bang for buck with a turbo kit on the stock engine. I did a bit of research into the 36 fitment when i had mine

        i expect basically every workshop will say the same but i kind of like the mechanical simplicity of n/a - less piping etc
        also not chasing big power for this kind of thing either so standardish ez36 should be just fine, will be enough to stay in front of P platers but not enough to get in much trouble, and sounding good (i've not heard a truly good sounding 86 yet- some are ok)

            An EZ30/36 doesn't really sound like a porsche and honestly a turbo FA20 would anihilate one in every department and cost less.
            The engine doesn't bolt up to the FA20 gearbox, only a couple of bolts and the dowels do.

              Could throw money at it and make noises?

                ah bugger that is good to know. the one above sounds pretty nice though.
                power doesn't bother me at all as long as it is more than stock, i know a turbo would be a thousand times more cost effective. was more about making it a bit more special to drive/sound.
                i've got the 32 GTR for more fasts if i need it.
                as below, was thinking about doing a Gc8 originally but thought it would be fun in a rwd chassis.

                  yup thats the vid that got me thinking.
                  actually have a Gc8 which was the first car we were thinking of doing it to, but thought the brz could be a cool rwd newer chassis to have it in.
                  if the gc8 is far easier to swap we might stick to that.

                    GC8 is pretty tight fit too but I squeezed one in with a GT4094. BRZ would be more roomy.

                    EZ36 with would probs be a better bet as the extra cubes does help when NA. I would do it for you if you are that keen. You can run it on a Haltech E 2500 and it will have all the CAN comms to the car.
                    I did a Forester with NA EZ36 and they got 200kw atw out of it on E85 wringing it's neck.

                      K24A with a spinny boi? Apparently it can _just_ clear the bonnet if you clear a rib out.

                        Or just add a spinny boi to the FA20 and not spend 30k.

                          can see why turbo's are the popular route.. even the harrop supercharger kit is 10k to buy.

                            FA loves it if you're happy to run e85. I probably wouldn't bother on petrol.

                                is there any canberra people getting e85 easily? i havent looked for a while but it doesnt seem as accessible as all the other states.
